Category "Best Cloud Services provided by Start-Up CSP's"
Awarded on Behalf of EuroCloud Europe
Medius' CloudSE solution awarded as the best European cloud service in the category "Best Cloud Services provided by Start-Up CSPs". Nominees and the winners are determined by the paneuropean jury from participating countries composed of independent experts from different cloud expertise and distinction. Over 30 Cloud solution providers from all over Europe have competed in the 2-tiered competition - national and European.
Medius CLOUD SE is a cloud based software emulation of the SE, exposed as an open API, that enables service providers the ability to easily embed value added mobile services such as ticketing, loyalty, stored value to their existing mobile applications.
Providing mobile ticketing alongside classical contactless smart card without changes on existing validation infrastructure.
Eliminates business model complexity of physical presence of SE for global M-to-N value added services where more service operators, carriers, and trusted service providers are involved.
Easy to use API for embedding mobile ticketing functionality to a 3rd party ecosystems.
Leverage an ever growing population of smart NFC phones as personal or third party terminals and take the opportunity to offer additional value added services in your application.
Here is an overview of how we approach each new project.
Medius CloudSE is an open API architecture that implements CIPURSE™ specification as a cloud based Secure Element (SE). CloudSE exposes CIPURSE™ functionality to third party applications through secure web services. The architecture takes advantage of Android’s Host-based Card Emulation (HCE) library for selecting CIPURSE™ applications stored on CloudSE and tunneling APDU commands to/from CloudSE. The whole solution is independent of third party SE issuers, such as carriers and device manufacturers and does not require any upgrade of the existing ticket validation infrastructure. Furthermore, this open API architecture enables third party developers to implement their own applications and value added services that can easily access CloudSE exposed web services.
We are proud to also be a part of the initiative to bring open standars to public transport fare collection systems. Watch our COO, Viktor Brajak, talk about the need for open standards for HCE-based ticketing solutions and how to implement HCE with open standards.

"OSPT Alliance is delighted to welcome Medius as a Full Member"
Associations like ours rely on the knowledge and contributions of forward-thinking companies, like Medius, to expand and develop our offering to the marketplace. The company shares the OSPT Alliance philosophy that open standards are key to the future of the transport ecosystem and beyond and we are excited to see what this membership will bring to the alliance and to the HCE Working Group.
"HCE opportunities for Public transport"
HCE solutions do not require massive investments and are often supported by cloud based service providers that have already made investments in IaaS, Saas, or even PaaS (Infrastructure, Software, and/or Platform as a Service). Public transport networks have the potential to bring such service providers value add to the critical mass of both users and point of acceptance that are critical to ignite their service. Therefore forming a unique win-win potential partnership.
