What do our members say about CNA?

The support we received from CNA was invaluable. Not only was their level of expertise second to none but the amount of support they provided and their responsiveness was truly outstanding.

Grégory Boissinot,

RATP Smart Systems

In order to ensure the openness and interoperability of our selected systems and equipment, Casa Transport contacted Calypso Networks Association for support. CNA evaluated the technology to ensure it was truly interoperable and could provide a sustainable framework that can evolve  in accordance with CNA’s open standards guidelines. This project was delivered successfully and to the full satisfaction of Casa Transport.

Nabil Belabed,

Casa Transport

The support of Calypso Networks Association was essential in the process of decision making, since they helped in the analysis of the possible scenarios and in the construction of a unified vision involving the needs of every transport operator.
