EFKON USA Partners with Sirit for New Toll Products

Sirit Inc., a provider of radio frequency identification technology, announced that it has entered into an OEM agreement with Dallas based EFKON USA, Inc., a provider of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and advanced vehicle communications. Under the terms of the agreement, EFKON USA will integrate Sirit's Title 21-based toll tag technology into a range of new toll products that it unveiled at the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association's (IBTTA) 74th Annual Meeting and Exhibition, in Dallas, Texas.

EFKON USA's newly announced products include Pronto, a high performance toll tag system used for open road tolling, and can also be used for parking and access control; and HOTShot, a battery and solar powered system for high occupancy tolling (HOT) that uses smart cards and biometric identification for virtually failsafe authentication. Sirit's underlying 915 MHz toll technology, based exclusively on the open Title 21 standard, provides the platform for these innovative solutions.

Additionally, the agreement allows for EFKON USA to incorporate and/or sell other Sirit products such as Sirit's line of IDentity automotive vehicle identification products into complementary markets including parking and access control.
