The A-series builds upon NXP's long-time expertise in security technology, as well as its leading positions in the overall Identification market and key market segments including eGovernment, banking, public transport and mobile transactions. It leverages the advanced IntegralSecurity(TM) architecture of NXP's SmartMX(TM) high-security microcontrollers with more than 100 security features to protect the cryptographic keys and computations, as one of the elements of end-to-end system security. NXP has shipped more than one billion SmartMX chips to its customers including 86 out of 102 countries with ePassport projects and leading financial institutions worldwide.

We chose NXP as our security partner because of its leadership in security and device authentication and we are now very excited to provide a robust, secure and innovative communication platform for the next Smart Grid projects," said Ludger Boggering, director of product marketing at Dr. Neuhaus Telekommunikation.

"NXP is the security partner of choice for governments, organizations and companies worldwide, bringing security to all aspects of the smart life," said Sami Nassar, general manager, Authentication product line, NXP Semiconductors. "As millions of devices get connected to the cloud, cyber security has become a growing concern for many utilities, infrastructure manufacturers and automation technology suppliers. NXP has the right solutions at hand, providing advanced turnkey security solutions for embedded applications." The communication gateway secured by NXP enables flexible wide-area communication via a range of communication technologies, using power line (PLC), DSL/LAN, WLAN networks or mobile networks (GPRS). Dr. Neuhaus will first deploy its gateway solution for a smart metering project in Belgium. The technology will be showcased in the NXP booth (Hall 1, F30) as well as the Dr. Neuhaus booth (Hall 1, C08a) at the 14th annual Metering, Billing/CRM Europe event in Amsterdam, to demonstrate how authentication technology will be used to secure critical components of smart grid infrastructure.
