Hypercom Corporation (NYSE:HYC) today announced that it has completed the full EMV certification of all of its Artema Modular self-service payment systems and Artema Compact countertop terminals across 49 Dubai Metro stations to speed ticketing for 4 million passengers per month.

The EMV certification means that travelers on Dubai's urban railway network will benefit from secure and convenient payment using their chip and PIN cards.

"This latest certification reinforces our leadership position in self-service payment technology, our leadership in metro and rail ticketing systems, and brings new levels of speed and convenience to hundreds of thousands of travelers," said Brian J. Stobo, Vice President, Middle East and Africa, Hypercom Europe.

Thales, the integrator in charge of the Dubai Metro fare collection system, selected Hypercom's self-service and countertop payment systems for this implementation. Laurent Eskenazy, bids and system director for revenue collection systems of Thales, explains, "Demand for future-proof self-service systems is accelerating globally, enabling consumers to benefit from round-the-clock access to goods and services. With Hypercom, we are bringing state-of-the-art self-service ticketing throughout Dubai's premier metro system."

Hypercom's Artema Modular unattended payment system has become the product of choice for integrators and operators of self-service systems throughout Europe. At toll roads, parking meters and ticketing machines, Artema Modular provides a rugged and reliable card payment solution that has been designed to ensure the highest levels of transaction security.
