Link and OTLIS will be representing Portugal at IT Trans 2016

We are proud to announce that Link will be present at this year’s edition of IT Trans, a renowned event organized by the International Association of Public Transport (UITP, from the French L’Union Internationale des Transports Publics) which focuses on the latest IT solutions for public transport. This year, IT Trans is being held at Karlsruhe Trade Fair Centre, in Germany, between the 1st and the 3rd of March.

Link’s presence, together with OTLIS – Lisbon Transport Operators, aims to present the new HCE (Host Card Emulation) Mobile Ticketing solution. As a key-in-hand solution for transport operators, it enables the usage of the mobile phone as a totally dematerialized transport ticket holder in a simple lightweight manner, without the complexity of a SIM based NFC (Near Field Communication) implementation. Furthermore, the HCE Mobile Ticketing solution is built to be easily integrated with any type of ticketing network (e.g. validators and inspection equipment).

In Portugal, using the smartphone as a virtual transport card will become a reality sometime throughout this year. Link and OTLIS are already developing a mobile App for that purpose, combining technologic innovation to improved travelers’ convenience, thus promoting a more affordable and sustainable mobility.
