Overview: A not-for-profit association, Calypso Networks Association (CNA), has been created to regroup the transit network operators using Calypso, and the suppliers of Calypso compliant equipment. This association promotes the standard to new operators and manufacturers, defines the certification policy to guarantee the compatibility of all current and future products, and governs the evolution of the standard. Calypso is an international electronic ticketing standard for microprocessor contactless smartcards, originally designed by a group of European transit operators from Belgium, Germany, France, Italy and Portugal. It ensures multi-sources of compatible products, and allows for interoperability between several transport operators in the same area.
