NFC Forum and GlobalPlatform Partner to Accelerate Deployment of Interoperable NFC Solutions
GlobalPlatform, the organization which standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the NFC Forum, the association that advances the use of near field communication (NFC) technology. The partnership aims to harmonize specification activity to support the development of interoperable, multi-application NFC-based mobile solutions in the wider mobile services ecosystem, and to support NFC Forum certification activities. Toaccelerate the deployment of new mass market NFC-based use cases, the NFC community and wider mobile services sector must establish neutral, sustainable and scalable infrastructures that support secure communication between all stakeholders and technology platforms. This new, formal partnership will open up opportunities for innovative solutions across multiple industries by leveraging the NFC Forum's deep technical knowledge and extensive library of NFC-based standards and GlobalPlatform Specifications for managing contactless services, which serve multiple actors and support several business models.
