NEXT Biometrics delivers biometric system-on-card specifications to payment network
NEXT Biometrics revealed today that it is supporting one of the top five U.S. payment networks in outlining biometric system-on-card specifications for payment smart cards. The technical documentation has been delivered to the client and NEXT will continue to support the payment network in implementing the route to market.
According to the announcement, the collaboration is aimed at defining the biometric payment smart cards’ system architecture. The technical specifications are based on international standards and industry best practice experience that NEXT Biometrics has gained through its own certification processes and projects as well as its participation in standardization committees.
“We are honored and pleased that we have been chosen to support this specification process,” says Alain Faburel, NEXT Biometrics Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. “The superiority of our large-area sensor technology has been proven by independent studies and is key for an excellent user experience. This fact and the experience from enrollment and certification processes in a variety of industry sectors have positioned us as the partner of choice for this project.”
Last month the company announced that Key Source International is integrating NEXT Biometrics One Touch Access biometric fingerprint readers into its plug-and-play 1700 line of keyboards.
