    Malaga, Spain, December 09, 2010 – AT4 wireless, a leading testing and
    certification laboratory, announces that a new testing service for certification of
    devices built to NFC Forum global standards is now available at AT4 wireless
    laboratories in Taipei (Taiwan), Herndon (USA) and Malaga (Spain).

    Using the Rider NFC test system for digital protocol testing, the only test solution approved
    for NFC Forum certification and developed by AT4 wireless, AT4 wireless’s laboratories
    are able to ensure that NFC devices are thoroughly tested to NFC Forum certification

    Near Field Communication (NFC) is a short-range wireless connectivity technology that
    provides intuitive, simple, and safe communication between electronic devices.
    Communication occurs when two NFC-compatible devices are brought within a few
    centimeters of one another. NFC operates at 13.56 MHz and transfers data at up to 424
    Kbits/second. Because the transmission range is so short, NFC-enabled transactions are
    inherently secure.

    We want to thank the NFC Forum for this designation. AT4 wireless is the first laboratory
    to offer NFC Forum testing services in three different locations. AT4 wireless has been
    involved in the NFC Forum since 2005, and we are really excited about the NFC Forum
    Certification Program’s 1st Certification Wave,
    ” said Andres Moreno, Sales and Marketing
    Director at AT4 wireless. “This new service allows us to extend our portfolio of testing and
    certification services that already includes Bluetooth® qualification, Wi-Fi, Continua Health
    Alliance, GCF, PTCRB and WiMAX Forum® certification along with Regulatory testing and Worldwide Compliance Services, and strengthen our position as the leading laboratory for
    manufacturers of wireless devices

    “The launch of AT4 wireless’s certification testing service represents a high point in the long
    relationship between our two organizations,” said Paula Berger, Executive Director of the
    NFC Forum. “We are pleased that NFC device manufacturers on three continents can now
    have their products certified by one of the leading companies in the field.”
