INSIDE Contactless Chinese partner, Beijing Global Card Technology Centre has been chosen by the Chinese Ministry of Education to supply more than 8 million pieces of PicoTag smart-labels by INSIDE Contactless for the students of Chinese Colleges and Universities this year.

This is by far the biggest RFID project in China making INSIDE one of the leading supplier of contactless chips in China. INSIDEs paper based smart-labels will be used by Chinese Students as their own personal ID cards (with their data stored on the chip) to buy their discount railway tickets. Until now, the Ministry of Railways and Education had a hard time authenticating genuine student ID cards for the purchase of discounted railway student tickets to regulate fraud. The use of the secure PicoTag chip, and its good read/write communication distance, was the ideal solution to fight tickets counterfeiting, fraud and to provide a strict regulation of whom the authorities sell the discounted tickets to. PicoTag is a state-of-the-art contactless memory chip compliant with the ISO 15693 standard, and has the ability to operate at a vicinity distance of up to 1.5 m with a long range reader and antenna. PicoTag offers an additional cryptographic security feature for data protection and chip authentication. Unique secret keys are used to protect the different applications the product is used for.
