Calypso Networks Association (CNA) is delighted to announce its participation to the coming major event in Europe: the 12th ITS European Congress.
This event will take place in the Strasbourg Congress Center from June 19th to June 22nd
The main theme of the Congress, “ITS Beyond Borders”, is of the utmost relevance for all of us. The single market, an area without internal borders with the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital, can only be achieved when we work together to remove technical and regulatory barriers. Breaking down such barriers is also at the heart of the deployment of ITS. In order to be effective, the roll-out of ITS needs to be coherent and properly coordinated across the EU by public and private bodies. ‘ITS Beyond Borders’ should not only represent the interoperability and continuity of ITS between regions and Member States but also between different modes of transport facilitating multimodality.
CNA is working on the question of interoperability by proposing a standard designed for the intermodality, with different solutions such as Triangle, but also mobile solutions… For more than two decades CNA has successfully promoted an open, secure, interoperable, multiservice and multiprovider solution for a contactless ticketing.
We will be glad to welcome you on CNA booth – S14- to talk about the Calypso technology and learning more about our different projects as SDK, HCE and the Calypso Light Application... Discover how it became the main public transport standard adopted in Europe, Canada and North Africa.
We hope to meet you soon in Strasbourg!
Calypso, your key for mobility, designed for smart cities.
