NEXT Biometrics Group ASA announced it will be attending this year’s Cartes Secure Connexions expo in Paris on November 17-19. Cartes 2015 is a global event dedicated to secure solutions for payment, identification and mobility.
NEXT Biometrics will be presenting a number of applications, including its NEXUS Smartphone design with a full-size fingerprint sensor on the back of the smartphone.
NEXT CEO Tore Etholm-Idsoe said, “At Cartes we will be showing our sensors integrated in products targeting payments, governmental markets and other higher-end, quality critical applications. Included here will be a NEXUS Smartphone reference design in which we have integrated a full size sensor (12 by 17 mm) in the back of the phone. This facilitates secure and convenient use for close to a 100% of a population meeting the requirements of customers and applications that cannot allow simple pin-code or password based authentication as a back-up to the sensor.”
Radek Matyasek, NEXT’s Vice President EMEA Sales, added, “Several NEXT-enabled programs are in active development using our sensors. At Cartes we will also be demonstrating a new ‘NEXT-enabled’ product designed by a customer, targeting secure payment transactions.”
Previously reported, NEXT Biometrics held an extraordinary general meeting with shareholders in Oslo, Norway on November 2 in which it approved the 120 million Norwegian crowns (US$14.78 million) investment from Greenbridge Partners.
