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.

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."
