The benefits of VTAP NFC pass readers

✔ Users need only the Apple Wallet or Google Wallet app to store NFC digital passes

✔ Fully certified by Apple for VAS and Google for Smart Tap

✔ Also compatible with MIFARE, DESFire and NFC Forum cards and tags

The preeminent solutions for reading digital NFC passes from Apple and Google wallets – VTAP readers are deployed across thousands of facilities worldwide, in fitness centers, membership venues, sports and entertainment arenas, as well as retail and hospitality sites.

Quick deployment

Easy to retrofit to existing systems, and quick to integrate into new platforms – providing a smooth transition to an Apple and Google digital wallet pass experience.

VTAP readers have been designed specifically for mobile pass applications, but also read popular contactless NFC and RFID cards and tags – supporting mixed media environments and easing the migration away from legacy plastic cards.

Configurable to selectively extract and transfer pass data within existing system formats.

QR/barcode code scanner emulation.

Easy management

No SDK required for configuration and management. The file-based approach to VTAP reader configuration is platform independent and requires no drivers or dedicated software. Simply copy configuration, firmware, and private key files (in standard file formats) to the reader to update.

Operating parameter configuration can be done via either USB or serial host interface. Serial file transfers use the ZModem protocol, with active (send on tap) and passive (command/response) interface options.

The flexible and intuitive settings can be edited manually or programmatically, and real time commands can be sent. Settings include support for the use of multiple pass profiles and private keys, as well as tailored feedback to users via RGB LEDs and/or a buzzer.

Strong security

Designed with security in mind from the outset.

Protected merchant private keys. It is not possible to read back the keys used to decrypt pass data once they have been loaded, although they can be updated easily by reloading.

Reader firmware updates can use an encrypted update file. All configuration data can be password protected. Reset to factory defaults, if needed, clears all sensitive data.

MIFARE secure sector and DESFire secure file reading is also implemented to support migration from legacy systems.
