NFC as a Business Driver
NFC was developed to address the contactless standards dilemma. NFC is a technology standard that harmonizes and extends existing contactless standards.
NFC technology is supported by the world's leading consumer electronics (CE) and mobile device manufacturers, semiconductor producers, network operators, developers, service companies, and financial institutions.
NFC enables these organizations to invest in one technology that supports leading global contactless technologies and applications. By integrating NFC, devices can support and interoperate with existing contactless card applications and infrastructures such as access control, payment, and transport.
It also introduces innovative new features that are only possible with the union of contactless technology and CE devices.
