June 12, 2014 Rosslare Security, a leading global provider of professional Access Control solutions, is pleased to announce the release of its new family of Open to Secure™ (O2S) smart card readers. These readers support reading from and writing to the secure memory of the world’s most accepted RFID technologies – MIFARE® DESFire® EV1, MIFARE® Plus, and MIFARE® Classic.

 Rosslare’s Open to Secure (O2S) family of readers are highly flexible smart card readers that redefine ease of use and high security in the world of RFID access control solutions. With MIFARE DESFire EV1 and MIFARE Plus credentials, you have access to the highest levels of cryptographic security with support for 128-Bit AES encrypted communications between reader and credential. With O2S preprogrammed readers and credentials, you can have the highest level of secure access control solutions right out of the box.

Choose from a variety of standard configurations to get the functionality that you need –

revolutionary and modern industrial design (US/UK/Asia or mullion mount), proximity only or proximity & keypad authentication, pigtail or terminal block termination, and multi-format Wiegand or Open Supervised Device Protocol (OSDP) outputs.

The O2S readers utilize a three-pass authentication technique together with a random number generator (high-speed triple-DES data encryption) and a flexible memory organization structure to guarantee data integrity during contactless transactions. They can be programmed as a Card Serial Number (CSN) or as a MIFARE Plus/DESFire application data reader. The MIFARE Plus/DESFire reader utilizes DES encryption and is compliant with the Common Access Card (CAC) standard for secured access control systems.

The readers meet IP65 and are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.

"We are very excited about the launch of our O2S smart card readers," said Rosslare Director of EU Sales Don Weintraub. "Global markets are moving towards higher security solutions, and with our O2S readers we continue to be at the fore of card reading technology."
