Suprema, Kwick Deploy Biometric Verification System for SIM Card Issuance in Pakistan


Biometrics and identification solutions provider Suprema announced on Monday it has provided the latest version of its fingerprint PC security scanner entitled ‘BioMini Slim’ to Pakistan-based SIM manufacturing and biometric security solutions provider Kwick High-Tech & Solutions.

The BioMini Slim scanner will be used for Kwick’s Android-based biometric verification system on SIM cards issuance in Pakistan. As Suprema’s first model of products running on Android OS, BioMini Slim is specially designed to provide a high level security solution for PC based identity access management solutions.

The scanner features IP65 rated dust and waterproof form factor while maintaining a sleek ergonomic design. It is also equipped with Suprema’s latest 500dpi slim optical sensor, designed to enable easy and reliable fingerprints capturing and provides Suprema’s Live Finger Detection, patent in-progress.

Kwick recently launched a solution for biometric verification of mobile phone customers, which consists of the Android-based BioMini Slim which has Kwick’s application running on it.

With the biometric verification system in place, before the issuance of a new SIM, the thumb impressions of customers are matched with the NADRA database to ensure that the person holding the CNIC card is, in fact, the legitimate individual with correct credentials.

Suprema has already made the first shipment with more expected to be shipped in phases as it is estimated that over 75,000 deployments of the biometric verification devices will be required at countrywide outlets in Pakistan.

This is also expected to be one of the largest deployments of Suprema products with the collaboration of Kwick Hightech & Solutions.
