cVEND is used successfully thousands of times in transit applications around the globe.
cVEND plug is designed for flush integration in any kind of non-conducting front plates like Ticket Validators, Driver Consoles, Kiosk-Systems and many others.
cVEND plug is electrically and mechanically designed for transit applications and complies with transit specifications of global card brands as well as with railway and automotive standards.
cVEND plug is fully approved for open-loop payment by EMVCo and PCI PTS
Supports with the same priority open-loop contactless payment cards and mobile wallets from international and domestic payment card brands as well as closed-loop cards like mifare, ITSO, VDV-KA, calypso.
cVEND plug is VISA ready for Transit listed
The cVEND specific secure Linux operating system together with an easy to use SDK and the cVEND Multi-Application architecture makes application development easy and fast and supports open-loop and closed-loop cards totally independent with the same priority.
The step-by-step upgrade concept enables migration from closed-loop to open-loop. Level 2 kernel packages can be upgraded later in field.
Its innovative security concepts with Crypto Plug-Ins supports symmetric and asymmetric encryption, key-derivation and remote key loading and makes cVEND capable for PCI P2PE solutions.
The low power standby mode makes it suitable for battery powered application.
