Low cost card, high security level: CLAP offers an ideal solution for low-cost and high-volume contactless cards production.

For public transport, events, access control and many other applications, avoid magnetic stripes, barcode or QR-code, proprietary contactless tickets: take advantage of a fully secure and standardized contactless portable object with CLAP. It is a simplified Calypso Operating System which uses a subset of the Calypso rev3.1, with the same cryptography and security. It can be embedded in small components, paper or soft plastic, which allows it to be sold in automatic vending machines.

It has been designed by CNA to answer to operator needs, with a straight and fruitful cooperation with manufacturers in a dedicated CNA working group.


Main benefits

> High security and fast contactless transactions

> Fixed file structure similar to existing ones (e.g. CDLight, CD 97) for a smooth integration

into existing Calypso schemes

> Strictly compliant to all standards

> Available from multiple suppliers

> Reusable and reloadable cards for a more sustainable ticketing

> CNA end-to-end certification process for manufacturers

> Certified CLAP cards already available

> An immediate answer to quickly address occasional users

> Perfectly adapted to ABT schemes, highly secure authentication.

CLAP is the perfect solution for the anonymous user. Unlike the magnetic ticket it makes use of contactless as the Calypso card, thus lowering maintenance costs, and unlike the memory contactless ticket, being a subset of Calypso rev3.1, it allows for greater and quicker integration with existing Calypso card systems. Its level of security and durability allows networks to approach anonymous users like never before.

CNA at the "Assises Des Usages Numériques Citoyens"

The ADCET organised the thirteenth edition of its Assises, the 16th October 2018, in partnership with the European Metropolis of Lille.

On this occasion, the ADCET Assises became the Assises Des Usages Numériques Citoyens, around the AMC standard (Application Multiservices Citoyenne).

Philippe Vappereau, Chairman of CNA, Noël Philippe, Chairman of the ADCET and Alain Caffart, Chairman of Hoplink, made a presentation about Calypso, the AMC and Hoplink as the winning ticket for the MaaS.
Indeed, France has the opportunity, through those three tools, to promote and implement an interoperable, multimodal and multiservice solution that makes travel and daily life easier for citizens.

The Assises were also the occasion to discover “French Mobility”, the initiative of the French Ministry of Transport to facilitate innovation in mobility, the impacts of the European directive - DGMP -  on digital citizen uses and some presentations about local initiatives for multiservice and Mobility as a Service in Lille, Bordeaux, Rennes, Amiens, Lyon and the Normandy.

CNA at the Encuentro Internacional Habitat III +2

The United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, the 1, 2 & 3 of October 2018 in Quito, Ecuator

With the support of UNO Habitat, Ecuador's capital, Quito, has become a laboratory city for the implementation of the New Urban Agenda in the Region.

The Secretary of  Mobility has developed technical forums to create a space for presentation and discussion on issues of great interest to the Quito Metropolitan District, when generating an intelligent transport system with the key components that this involves.

Calyspo has been asked to act as an expert in the following panels:

 1. Transport Management Model with a presentation named: Organizational Models of transport in Portugal, 2 ways to introduce Smart Ticketing.

 2. Management of an integrated transport system with a presentation called: Interoperability, openness and Open Source
