TSP, genuine carrier of innovation as regards mobile payment, chooses to trust Ixxi.
Ixxi experiments NFC ticketing in Italy
Ixxi was chosen by TSP to accompany it on the technical plan in the design, the implementation and the operation of the solution of ticketing NFC (telephone without contact) which it currently works out in partnership with Telecom Italia (1st Italian telecom operator) and several operators of transport (START in Ravenna, ANM in Naples, TPER in Bologna).
The project focusses on the interworking at the level of the national territory, by proposing a single application NFC to reach the transport networks of the Italian big cities. It aims pooling the costs and at reconciling the category of the users frequently moving between several cities, with urban transport public.
The adopted approach, both organizational and technical level, is open and modular and will allow in particular other operators of transport and other operators telecoms to join this project, by offering to their customers the same service of NFC ticket.
A pilot phase of several months begin in the first quarter of 2014. The first users will be able, during this period, to acquire starting from a single androïd portable application a one-way ticket or a daily ticket for the networks of Naples, Ravenna and Bologna.
It is moreover the single project of ticketing NFC “SIM based” of scale currently in progress in Italy in the field of transport. A similar project, called ABC (Application Billettique Commune) is in the course of invitation to tender in France.
