CNA was at the Mobile World Congress 2019

This year again, we were at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on the Belgium Pavillon. It was the occasion to present our generic mobile ticketing solutions for transportation - HCE and CNA Applet for Java cards - and the very first Open Source SDK & API for secure contactless transactions, Eclipse Keyple. 

Discover our demo which demonstrates how Keyple can be used in a distributed architecture, for instance for ticket provisioning, or in a standalone architecture, i.e ticket debit.



See you next year at MWC Barcelona!



A new Calypso® certified product with Idemia

First certification delivered for an EMV Dual Interface payment card using the CNA Java Applet to Idemia with Cosmo Fly

This new payment card called Cosmo Fly, enabling cardholders to buy public transport tickets directly from their bank’s transport partner. The tickets are stored in their payment card and can be used immediately. This solution is very convenient for commuters as they pay and travel using just one card.


Olivier Nora, Senior Vice-President Products & Systems for Financial Institutions activities at IDEMIA, said:“Transport operators can derive major benefits from the Dual Interface migration in the financial sector. At IDEMIA we are thrilled to be the first company to provide a contactless transport solution compatible with Calypso technology.”
