The NFC Forum, a non-profit industry association that advances the use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, has published the NFC Controller Interface (NCI), which is available to the public for download at no charge. NCI is a major new specification, created from the ground up, that defines a standard interface within an NFC device between an NFC controller and the device's main application processor.
The NFC Forum, a non-profit industry association that advances the use of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, has approved and adopted the NFC Analog technical specification, which is available now to the public for download at no charge. This new specification is a major step forward in the NFC Forum's goal of global interoperability because it makes it easier for device manufacturers to build NFC Forum-compliant devices. It addresses the analog characteristics of the RF interface of an NFC-enabled device, and it is intended for use by manufacturers wanting to implement such devices.
HID Global, announced its completion of two pilot programs that validate how mobile access control using NFC-enabled smartphones can allow employees to conveniently open doors with a mobile device without compromising physical enterprise security. The pilots were conducted at the headquarters offices of Netflix, a leading Internet subscription service for enjoying TV series and films, and Good Technology™, a company, working in secure enterprise mobility solutions, using HID Global’s iCLASS® SE platform including iCLASS Seos™ credentials that are portable for use on NFC-enabled smartphones.
