The magnetic stripe card is gradually being replaced by smartcards that allow information to be both read and modified with greater security. This allows variable information to be stored on cards allowing then to be used for SIM cards, electronic purses and personal identification. This report discussed the history, development and applications for smartcards, together with the major standards, card types, manufacturers and users.
We wanted to extend our Com World Series of telecoms industry events to the South Pacific region and we were in urgent need of a partner in the region who could assist us with confirming the involvement of governments, telcos and more. Paul Budde and his team executed this perfectly. Paul also provided us with very high quality reports on every aspect of the project, including an amazingly thorough and actionable report on the conference presentations and discussion.
