A partnership between LEGIC Identsystems and MCX Systems will allow MCX to provide more secure contactless solutions to its clients in Poland, including city cards for public transport, electronic purses and comprehensive access control systems.
Zurich/Switzerland, Warsaw/Poland–LEGIC Identsystems Ltd, the leader of 13.56 MHz contactless smart card technology for personal identification applications, and MCX Systems Sp. zo. o., provider of comprehensive ICT solutions, signed a license agreement in Poland. The partnership strengthens LEGIC’s position in the Polish market and enables MCX to implement state-of-the-art technology in its terminal card systems.
MCX was established in 1988 and since its foundation has enjoyed a dynamic growth, keeping pace with the technology boom of the late 20th century.

Today, the company provides sophisticated, tailor-fit ICT systems, as well as implementation services, advisory and training in the areas of tele- and multimedia communications, information management and network infrastructure.
Complementary to its highly sophisticated data management systems, MCX has answered the need for solutions and tools ensuring the highest levels of security. The company offers state-of-the-art terminal card systems, using chip technology as well as biometric identification, for access control tools in order to authorize access to computer networks, to set resource access rights as well as to control physical access to buildings and premises. MCX’s solutions combine a wide scope of applications with perfect compatibility with existing infrastructure.
The 13.56 MHz contactless LEGIC technology ideally supports such multi-functionality, and it tops it with advanced security features and compliance with industry standards like ISO 15693, ISO 14443, DES/3DES. It has, amongst others, been successfully implemented in the areas of access control, time & attendance, cashless payment, parking and fleet management, data collection, office automation and IT access – all fields which are closely related to MCX’s successful activities in the Polish market.
