Royal Philips Electronics has announced that the Beijing Municipal Administration and Communications Card Co. Ltd (BMAC) is using Philips' MIFARE UltraLight contactless chip technology in a new e-ticketing system for the Great Wall of China at Badaling, Beijing. With the MIFARE, visitors will obtain faster, easier and more convenient access to this popular tourist destination, as existing magnetic card access is replaced by Philips' contactless chip technology used in a contactless smart card system, BMAC explained.

The new e-ticketing system is compatible with Beijing's existing one-card ticketing system, which will be used at the 2008 Olympics and will also support Beijing Public Transportation mass transit cards based on Philips' MIFARE contactless chip technology.

The contactless system is rugged making it suitable for outdoor use, and is designed to withstand the hot and cold weather extremes as well as other severe weather conditions such as blowing sand encountered at the Great Wall.
