SUNNYVALE, Calif. & GLASGOW, UK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

End-to-end CIPURSE solution to extend worldwide reach, providing flexibility, innovation and security key to future mobility services

Rambus Inc. (RMBS), a technology leader in smart ticketing solutions for public transport, today announced a new strategic collaboration with Infineon Technologies AG, a global leader in semiconductor solutions, to jointly promote smart ticketing solutions for mobile and smart cards that will drive the next generation of mobility services worldwide. Both companies will combine their expertise on the CIPURSE™ open standard for mobile and smart card ticketing to provide end users the most comprehensive choice of solutions for future proof transport ticketing solutions.

CIPURSE™ is an open standard supported by a global community of members of the OSPT Alliance. As key supporters and board members of the OSPT Alliance, Rambus and Infineon recognise the trust and integrity CIPURSE™ provides as a platform upon which to build a flexible and secure interoperable ticketing proposition.

With extensive experience implementing scalable smart mobile ticketing solutions, Rambus will bring its Host Card Emulation (HCE) Ticket Wallet Service and Remote Ticket Download (RTD) solutions to the collaboration, providing secure download and storage of tickets on NFC-enabled smartphones and the ability to deliver tickets remotely to smartcards. Along with Infineon’s CIPURSE™ smart ticketing products, the companies will both be able to better deliver a high level of security for the international smart ticketing market, with mobile and smart card ticketing working in tandem.

Russell McCullagh, vice president and general manager of Rambus Ticketing commented: “Through our collaboration with Infineon, we will be able to increase global trust and awareness of the benefits of this open standards-based approach, which can help make public transport ticketing more accessible for all transport scenarios, whether passengers are on rail, bus or ferry.”

Bernardo Knoblich, head of Transport Ticketing Product Line of Infineon Technologies said: “Our expanded collaboration with Rambus is underlining Infineon’s commitment to open standards-based solutions. Innovative services where smart card-based ticketing is deployed along with mobile solutions on a global scale will improve user convenience and hence drive adoption of new mobility services.”
