It should be no surprise to hear that LISNR has broken the data/sound barrier yet again with a solution designed to facilitate fast, efficient and secure data transfer. The KAB (Kilo Audio Bit) tone, transmits data at 1,000 bits per second, utilizing a payload large enough to support encrypted data for easy integration with the latest authentication technologies and systems. With a focus on security, this new tone is ideal for use in digital payments, mobile wallets, retail and authentication scenarios.
Our KAB technology takes LISNR’s innovative tone based communications protocol to the next level. Released in 2012, our protocol consists of a three-part audio tone capable of transmitting data via near-ultrasonic frequencies inaudible to most humans. This offers companies a viable, efficient and cost-effective alternative to EMV, NFC and QR code-based solutions which have reliability issues and are vulnerable to hacking and accidental information loss.
Over the years, a number of enterprise companies have deployed LISNR technology in their consumer-friendly applications. Most recently, we established a partnership with Synchrony Financial (NYSE: SYF) and Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX), both premier public companies with financial services solutions, in an effort to bring safer, more streamlined payment experiences to millions of users across the globe.
We’re super proud of what LISNR has done, KAB is a true technological leap already being designed into several commercial applications. At 1,000 bps throughput, KAB dwarfs Google’s Tez offering, which facilitates transfers at a mere 66 bps. Additionally, LISNR’s partnerships with Visa, Jaguar Land Rover, and Ticketmaster demonstrate that we have commercial grade security capabilities that support data-intensive operations.
LISNR is actively working with market leaders across mobile payments, mobile ticketing, authentication and more. We would love to talk to you about how LISNR can help you if you’re interested in learning more about the KAB. Connect with us today.
