Mifare™ – AUSTRIACARD’s Basic Public Transport Solution

Classic Mifare™ Solution

The Mifare Classic™ solution was introduced in 1994. It is an absolute success story with more than five billion cards issued worldwide to date. Mifare Classic™ is available with 1k or 4k Byte of EEPROM (Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory) and is able to process up to 40 different applications. Independent Mifare™ certifications grant interoperability.

Since the Mifare Classic™ functionality is also available on our dual interface ACE products, an easy migration to high-secure processor chip solutions (based on ISO/IEC 7816 compatible applications) can be carried out. AUSTRIACARD’s experts have many years of experience and support clients during their entire MifareTM project.
