)-- Galitt Canada complements Raisonance's worldwide sales organization with a sales team dedicated to the American and Canadian markets. With extensive experience in application level testing for the smart card industry, Galitt Canada offers promotional capabilities and complementary technical expertise to support users on the full range of Raisonance test and certification tools.
Fueled by booming interest in Near Field Communications (NFC) for mobile phones and notably in payment applications, Raisonance is experiencing a corresponding increase in demand for the test and certification tools that ensure the reliability of this complex technology. "To meet this increased demand and address the concerns related to certification of payment applications, it is essential to have a partner capable of addressing both concerns. With Galitt's extensive experience in smart card and EMV testing, we are confident that they will offer both excellent counsel and support for our North American customers," according to Benoit Hedou, Director of the Raisonance Smart Card Test activity.
Galitt Canada is a subsidiary of Galitt, the leading provider of advanced test solutions for transactional systems and EMV cards. Established in Montreal (Quebec) since 2002, Galitt Canada offers a unique expertise in electronic payment systems. Jean-Christophe Derré, Galitt Canada's General Manager, combines sophisticated technical skills and know-how with a strong business-oriented approach. "Galitt Canada is proud to have concluded this partnership with Raisonance, which, we believe, will be profitable for both companies. I expect the new collaboration will bring phenomenal growth for the two partners."
Raisonance's line of smart card tools includes hardware/software platforms to test contactless and contact smart cards used in applications such as access control, ticketing, identity and payment. This includes test tools for NFC technologies found in the latest mobile phones. The Raisonance line includes ProxiSPY and ContactLAB protocol analyzers for diagnosing interoperability problems between cards, readers and components during development, manufacturing and deployment. Raisonance ProxiLAB and ContactLAB tools provide signal emulation for component development, test and certification. For NFC mobile phones, Raisonance tools provide all the features needed for complete visibility of wireless and wire communications and for concurrent testing of all the NFC related communication interfaces.
Thanks to its leading technology and key partnerships, Raisonance is fielding pre-certification solutions for NFC enabled mobile phones that are just reaching the market. This new technology promises to revolutionize consumer use of the mobile phone in ticketing, payment and service delivery applications. However the technology complexity and the need for ensuring reliability of phones and applications is creating unprecedented demand for test tools from companies manufacturing and deploying NFC. "Our customers have enormous investments in NFC. This includes investments in our hardware and software tools. That investment requires that we provide them advice they can trust." According to Benoit Hedou, "Galitt Canada offers the service, knowledge and experience that Raisonance customers can trust."
