OTI's UNO-8 (SATURN 8700) has been granted EMVCo Contactless Level 2 Type Approval for EntryPoint module, and for Visa and Mastercard (Kernels C2 and C3). These approvals were provided under the new EMVCo modular architecture. These new additions to the UNO-8 add to the previous FeliCa certification.

The advanced Modular structure provides OTI's customers with the ability to deploy upgrades or additional applications and features to its existing reader installation base without requiring recertification of the entire terminal. The Modular architecture including Visa and Mastercard, enables OTI's Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) customers to leverage existing Level 2 approvals for their use while optimizing the certification process.

"This innovative modular architecture achievement confirms OTI's commitment to providing its clients with the most advanced technologies while maintaining the strict security standards," says OTI CEO Shlomi Cohen. "FeliCa, Visa, and Mastercard certifications strengthen our commitment to our global strategy, creating cost-efficient solutions and products that support today's important modular requirements."
