CETECOM, a major test lab for the smart card industry, has just acquired the complete card- related series of Galitt GlobalPlatform Test Suites. CETECOM customers in all geographies can now benefit from a high quality service and a fast and efficient product qualification.
CETECOM, global smart card testing service provider recognized by GlobalPlatform, has just completed the acquisition of all Galitt Tests Suites. Thanks to this acquisition, CETECOM is now able to offer test and qualification services for all GlobalPlatform card specifications. CETECOM is in possession of Galitt qualified tools and has the expertise to confirm a product's compliance to GlobalPlatform configurations.
Thanks to a long-standing relationship with GlobalPlatform – a cross industry, non-profit association which identifies, develops and publishes specifications that promote the secure and interoperable deployment and management of multiple applications on secure chip technology – Galitt offers all Test Suites defined by GlobalPlatform. Galitt Test Suites are marketed to both test labs, such as CETECOM, and to smart card industrialists. This way, products are tested with the same Test Suites at development stage by smart card vendors and at qualification stage by GlobalPlatform-approved tests laboratories.
Oliver Altmeyer, responsible for GlobalPlatform testing at CETECOM, declares: “As we already used some of Galitt test tools, it was a natural move to work with Galitt to set up our full GlobalPlatform offer. Our engineers are familiar with Galitt test tools, allowing us to provide the best test and qualification service to our customers.”
Galitt builds upon its long experience in test tools for the card and payment industry to propose a unique homogeneous suite of tools: unit testing, acceptance testing, evaluation and certification, prototyping, stress and load testing. The quality of the user interface provides flexibility to users, allowing use at all levels from occasional to expert testers. Galitt test tools provide a unified user interface allowing users to become instantly operational on new tests, along with a high level of automation in order to ensure efficiency and reliability in the test process.
François Inglebert, Marketing & Offer Director, Products & Solutions at Galitt, adds: “The fact that CETECOM uses all our GlobalPlatform Test Suites is a strong recognition of the quality and consistence of our products. With Galitt Test Suites, CETECOM proposes its customers a full GlobalPlatform test offer in all its laboratories around the world.”
