Augmented identity provider IDEMIA has rolled out its MorphoWave Compact contactless fingerprint technology to Digital Garage, its first customer in Japan.

A statement from the company said the installation of the technology at the new headquarters of Digital Garage, located in Tokyo's Shibuya district, had been done along with Japan Aerospace Corporation.

JAC had also done the network configuration for the deployment, IDEMIA said.

Employees can now authenticate by waving their hands across a sensor. The contcatless system is also more hygienic than systems which require one to place one's finger or fingers on a pad.

IDEMIA Japan managing director and vice-president of sales Nezu Nobuyoshi said: “With the increasing number of access points in buildings and offices, having touchless 3D fingerprint authentication technology is increasingly important to achieve convenience and maximum security.

"As a leader in biometrics, we want to provide entities with an advanced biometric technology that is convenient to use and allows users to identify themselves without complications.”

A Digital Garage spokesperson said: “We are proud to be the first in Japan to implement this touchless 3D fingerprint technology for biometric access control, which ensures accurate identification of our employees and visitors.

"IDEMIA’s technology is the ideal fit for us, thanks to its versatile and easy deployment, accuracy and reliability in fingerprint matching.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
