ABSTRACT NFC mobile services are an important emerging area for NFC technology, with great potential for growth. The NFC Forum’s strategy for accelerating the growth of this business area includes recognizing and describing what is needed to realize successful NFC mobile services, such as key technologies, typical use cases, and the structure of the overall ecosystem. In this white paper, the NFC Forum analyzes how to expand the existing contactless card ecosystem to enable NFC mobile services, identifies new functionalities in this ecosystem, and discusses additional functionalities. The paper aims to provide ecosystem players, particularly Mobile Networks Operators (MNOs) and Service Providers (SPs), with a common understanding of such new functionalities. It also provides detailed information that will help them evaluate the opportunities, develop their markets and promote their participation in the ecosystem.

Essentials for Successful NFC Mobile Ecosystems 2 1 Introduction Within the last few years, contactless card technology has been maturing and has been adopted by major sectors such as transport, payment, and retailing. In parallel, mobile phones with the additional offerings of Internet and multimedia services have successfully entered people’s lifestyles. Contactless card technology can now expand its domain of applicability by adding contactless functionality to the mobile phone. The Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile service, which leverages the current contactless infrastructures, has just started to emerge. In some countries, services benefiting from the convergence of contactless card technology and mobile phones have already been introduced commercially, and these converging services are ubiquitous and successful.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
