KEOLABS and BCTC now ready for EMVCo 3.0

As a leading provider of test tools, KEOLABS is pleased to announce that its EMVCo 3.0 test benches are now deployed in all the laboratories of BCTC (Bank Card Test Center - China)


17 July 2019, Montbonnot, FRANCE – Since the announcement in October 2018 that BCTC had selected KEOLABS through its official tender for EMVCo 3.0 test bench upgrading, KEOLABS and BCTC were working closely to prepare the installation of the new equipment. KEOLABS announced today that the 11 fully automated solutions for card (PICC) and reader (PCD) testing are now deployed in all the laboratories of BCTC, and starting today customers can request test sessions based on KEOLABS’ equipment.

Benoit Hedou, CEO at KEOLABS, said: “Our technical team spent few weeks in China for this installation. It has further strengthened our relationship with BCTC, and we now remain available to provide responsive support to all their customers”.

KEOLABS’ Level 1 test tool is the only fully automated solution of the market which is based on hardware components coming from recognized independent providers. It is of course intended for use in certification labs, but also for developers wishing to characterize or evaluate the conformity of their products.
