White Paper
By focusing on three major areas of development - Technical Specifications, Compliance and Certification Programs, and Market Adoption Initiatives - the NFC Forum has led the effort to expand the adoption of NFC technology around the world. This white paper provides an overview of the achievements of the last 15 years while giving guidance for continued growth and ease of use.
White Paper
There's no mystery to the growth of IoT. By adding intelligence and network connectivity to appliances, home automation solutions, and other personal electronics, manufacturers can deliver more capabilities, value, and convenience to their users. With that, however, manufacturers must determine how best to IoT-enable their products and devices for control and troubleshooting assistance. NFC technology delivers greater flexibility, better security, and reduced costs. For consumers, NFC is the key to enjoying products sooner, operating them with greater flexibility, and troubleshooting them with minimal effort.
White Paper
With NFC technology now included as standard equipment on millions of Android and iOS smartphones worldwide, NFC has emerged as a powerful tool to complement and enhance the value and performance of consumer electronics devices that form an increasingly important part of the Internet of Things (IoT), from headphones and speakers to smart home systems, appliances, and game consoles. NFC’s growing global deployment allows for wide interoperability, and its ease of use makes NFC a natural choice when IoT device manufacturers want to streamline and improve the User Experience (UX) throughout the lifecycle of an IoT device.
