Hyperlab is Consult Hyperion’s technical team of IT professionals with well-developed skills in various forms of development (application, web, mobile and embedded), testing, certification, systems design and systems administration. The team is experienced in taking functional specifications and requirements through a software development lifecycle (SDL) to produce the desired output in timescales appropriate to our client’s needs. The SDL utilised places significant focus on security, testing and client feedback such that the development stays on track with our client’s requirements even when these may be fluctuating as the project progresses. In particular the team has significant experience working with new technologies and specifications which are still undergoing changes whereby they provide significant feedback to the client on both the suitability and capability of technologies and business concepts to be implemented in the real world.
The diagram below visualises some of the many technologies, components and concepts which we use on a regular basis. As well as using standard development platforms like Windows and the Internet, we make significant use of more niche areas like smart cards, smart phones, embedded devices, robots and payment terminals. Throughout all of our work we focus on a User (cardholder, customer, operator or appropriate other role) centric model and we make use of several core components – connectivity, usability, security and identity.
The following case studies show just a few examples of the many varied projects we undertake for our various clients:
• Barclaycard Freedom prototype for Focus Group Testing
• American Express Contactless Terminal Certification
• Transport for London prototype Contactless Terminal (EMV, ITSO & Mifare)
• Identity Application Testing for the Department of Social Protection (Ireland)
