ELATEC Receive Apple VAS Certification
18th Feb 2020
The ELATEC TWN4 line of RFID card and smartphone mobile ID readers have received Apple’s Value-Added Services (VAS) Certification.
The new functionality enables for example EV charging service operators and e-mobility service providers to support customer identification using a NFC enabled membership Pass stored in the Wallet on an iPhone or Apple Watch which is then presented to a TWN4 RFID reader replacing the physical RFID card currently in use.
ELATEC’s multi-technology TWN4 RFID readers uniquely support all major RFID transponder technologies worldwide, and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), but now also the Apple VAS protocol.
“We’re very pleased to have our readers certified for the use with the Apple VAS protocol and users will love to simply hold their iPhone or Apple Watch up to the NFC reader for lightning fast, hassle-free interaction at e.g. EV charging stations”, said Klaus Nagel, Executive VP Global Sales.
