    Le Palmarès 2009 fait la part belle aux sociétés de taille moyenne puisque Gemalto occupe la première marche du podium". [Mieux Vivre votre argent: C. Brault]

  • Nov 17, 2009 | Cartes 2009: Gemalto won two Sesames awards - “Hardware“ with “Contactless Very High Data Rate“ and “Mobile” with MASSIM.

    The Contactless Very High Data Rate (VHDR) is a communication protocol that enables transfer of large amounts of data to and from contactless products, ten times faster than with current contactless technology. For example, a large music file can be transferred in less than three seconds. Contactless VHDR can be implemented in e-health cards to allow transfer of medical files including high-resolution X-ray pictures, or in eID cards to speed up biometric data verification. Incorporated in an NFC SIM card, Contactless VHDR would enable purchase of MP3 files with transfer and payment being carried out simultaneously.

    MASSIM, which stands for M2M Anti-Stealing SIM, is a Machine-to-Machine SIM card which theft can be detected immediately. An M2M SIM card is a robust SIM-based device that meets the stringent requirements of the industrial environment in terms of vibrations and shocks. Once MASSIM has been placed in industrial equipment, such as electricity or gas meters, the card automatically detects and stores its location. If removed and inserted into a mobile phone, it will immediately detect the change of location and send an SMS to the service provider. The service provider is then able to take all necessary actions, such as blocking the card.
