Tele2 Russia deploys SIM sales terminal with face recognition function at Vnukovo airport

Mobile operator Tele2 Russia has deployed its first terminal for SIM sales at Vnukovo airport in Moscow.
The terminal has a facial recognition function and has been deployed in the arrival hall of the airport on the occasion of the start of the FIFA World Cup 2018 competitions. The system installed on the terminal is able to scan passports and check their validity.
This is the first completely self-contained simicom in Russia, capable of collating a photograph in a passport with the face of a card buyer. SIM cards were sold with the help of automatic devices in Russia before, but the person was engaged in checking the passport with the person and recording the passport data.

To get a SIM card, you need to attach a passport to the scanner, take a picture on the camera and sign a finger on the touchscreen of the simcom.

Galushina stressed that the possibility of using an invalid passport or obtaining a SIM card in case of a discrepancy between the identity of the passport holder and the buyer is excluded – the system will not allow this.
