White Paper
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises a future in which businesses and consumers benefit from dramatic increases in efficiency, productivity, ease, and speed. It must be noted, however, that these benefits will only become reality if we can effectively capture, analyze, and report previously unavailable data from electronic devices – from industrial equipment to smart home appliances.
White Paper
NFC technology supports a wide range of event-related applications and use cases, helping to maximize the efficiency, enjoyment, security, and profitability of each event. As entertainment options multiply and consumers are able to enjoy a broader range of viewing choices in their own homes, organizers of live events are under increasing pressure to deliver compelling, unique customer experiences that cannot be replicated. At stake is a $1.8 trillion-dollar global industry that includes musical concerts, festivals, sporting events, and more.

The role of NFC in urban travel transformation is fueled by population density, climate change and the convergence of payment, identification, authentication, access and travel information all being enabled by NFC.
In the past, seamless travel was often limited to local or regional transport ticketing schemes which supported mainly public transportation. Today, multi-modal travel and Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is a major global trend. Customers demand transport service offers that include all legs from the start of the journey to the final destination including the first and last mile. In addition to public transport services, modes of transportation like taxi, car rental or car sharing, bikes, scooters or ride sharing have to be supported.

Consumers Embracing the Convenience and Security of NFC Contactless Technology. Survey -- Post Covid contactless technology use spiking; signals global behavior change. Pre-Covid, over 40%% of consumers surveyed used contactless payment daily or almost daily, most with a smartphone. Today, that number is skyrocketing. Uses for contactless technology beyond payment – public transportation, digital identity, unlocking and starting vehicle, access control – are growing fast as the “contactless lifestyle” catches on. A recent ABI Research global survey sponsored by the NFC Forum shows that contactless technologies like near field communication (NFC) are surging as consumers look for convenient and secure ways to pay, unlock and connect with the world around them. Watch the video, listen to the podcast and share the infographic.
