CAPUFE Installs First 18000-6C Solution For Tolling









IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sirit Inc. ("Sirit"), a leading provider of radio frequency identification ("RFID") technology, Axiompass, a leading integrator and supplier of tolling equipment and RFID systems, and Caminos y Puentes Federales de Ingresos y Servicios Conexos ("CAPUFE"), Mexico's Federal Tolling Authority, announced today they have successfully installed the first toll-free system for residents in the country using Sirit RFID readers. 

Sirit's ID entity 5100 ("ID5100") is the latest generation in multi-protocol readers that can read different radio frequency protocols and performs extremely well at high speeds.  Among the protocols that the ID5100 can read is the ISO 18000-6C, which is being integrated into every vehicle in Mexico as part of the National Public Vehicle Registry ("REPUVE").  The ID5100 can also read the ISO 18000-6B and ISO-10374 protocols which are currently being used on all federal toll roads in Mexico which are operated by CAPUFE. 

In September 2011, following a public bid process, the State Government and the Federal Ministry of Communications and Transportation announced that CAPUFE had awarded Axiompass the project to install exclusive lanes on three toll plazas.  This will allow the residents of five municipalities in southern Sonora State to be exempted from toll payment in that region. Residents of these municipalities will use the REPUVE tag, which will automatically open the toll booth barriers when it is read by the RFID reader at speeds of about 30 km/h.

On the inauguration of the project with members of CAPUFE, Diosinio Perez Jacome Friscone, Minister of Communications and Transportation of the Federal Government, explained that this application serves residents of southern Sonora State.  He noted that this type of technology applied to toll-free road usage is unique in the country.  "This project responds to the Federal Government's commitment to modernize this highway, strengthening the road infrastructure of the country," he said.
