Calypso® is an open, secure standard for ticketing always with a focus on flexible and long-term deployable products. It is used in more than 25 countries and over 170 cities worldwide and was developed by transport companies and authorities for transport companies and authorities to ensure long-term usability and sustainability.
nagels offers two paper-based products from the Calypso® system in its product portfolio – the Calypso® Light Ticket and the Calypso® Basic Ticket.
Both ticket versions are characterized by high security and fast, contactless transactions. They are produced with the same data model and can be managed in the customer terminals with the same software. This technical feature offers an enormous advantage when switching from one ticket version to another. There are little to no changeover costs if a Calypso® product has already been used in the past.
The differences between both versions can be found in the ticket details. While the Calypso® Light Ticket contains its own operating system with the TimeCOS® CLAP, the Calypso® Basic Ticket is provided with the Calypso® file structure directly during chip manufacture by Infineon. It does not require an extra operating system. In addition, a significantly smaller chip is installed in the nagels Basic Ticket compared to the Light Ticket. This is also rechargeable and reusable, but only one transportation title can be loaded and not two, as with the Light. The pre-personalization is also designed to be easier and faster (cost-effective) with Calypso® Basic tickets.
