The 29 and 30 January 2019, CNA was at TTG London as exhibitor and speaker

Transport Ticketing Global London is today one of the biggest event in Ticketing dedicated for transportation, and it continues to grow every year. This shows that this subject is becoming more and more important, and  that ticketing is becoming a real tool to increase the attractiveness of public transport organisations.

It was an opportunity for us to present our latest releases:

Happy New Year 2019

Major changes and new features for CNA for this new year. Discover the word of the Chairman, Philippe Vappereau

Dear Calypso friends and partners,

After two years spent designing and building the future of Calypso, in 2019 we will witness the first implementations.

Our open source SDK, Eclipse Keyple™, is now available to all. It showcases our determination to lead ticketing to fully open solutions, at each level of the system, and to hand over control to users. Keyple is the most simple, reliable and flexible solution for managing Calypso and other ticketing technologies. Keyple brings Calypso’s feature-set to developers that address integrated mobility, public transport, event management and venue access.

A Brand Policy has been set up; it relies on the thorough certification of products and on a new license, available from the 1st of January 2019, which represents a contribution from manufacturers to the sustainability of Calypso. This license replaces the previous one, which was based on patents, to ensure both to users and providers, that  after the termination of patents, Calypso will keep its promises on security and interoperability and will remain a guarantor of fair competition.

Keyple and the Brand Policy are the two cornerstones of the CNA strategy, which is shared by many actors, as evidenced by the increased number of CNA members which reaches now 100, and which are more active than ever.

It gives us more responsibility to answer their new and varied needs, to assist them in using Calypso, to organize many events to encourage exchanges, networking and sharing  experience.

I think that we can collectively be proud of these achievements, and I would like to thank all contributors, CNA members, the Board of Directors and, of course, our dedicated team that worked hard to reach the objectives that we set up two years ago.

The Calypso team joins me in wishing you a very Happy New Year 2019.

Philippe Vappereau
CNA Chairman
