"We are very pleased with the results," said Luis Maldonado, CEO of Axiompass. "This is the first toll road that can use the 18000-6C REPUVE tag for toll collection purposes, which will open the path towards interoperability in Mexico."
"The opportunity to improve the traveling experience of southern Sonora residents is one we are happy to fulfill, particularly given its place as the first toll solution in Mexico to use the ISO 18000-6C RFID protocol," said John Freund, Vice President of Sales for Federal Signal Technologies, Sirit's parent organization. "The ability of our multi-protocol readers to integrate seamlessly into the existing infrastructure and read both the 18000-6C REPUVE tag and CAPUFE's -6B IAVE and ISO-10374 tags ensures no disruption to current agency business practices. This approach is customer friendly and economical, a key step in the path to national interoperability, and another example of Sirit's commitment to practical and customer-focused innovation."
