Qualcomm increases support for NFC technology
Qualcomm, a leading developer of mobile computer chips, has been showing increasing interest in NFC technology in recent months. The company has developed some products that are NFC capable, but has largely served as an observer of the technology over the years. Now, Qualcomm has upgraded its membership in the NFC Forum, an industry association that promotes standards for NFC technology. The move signals the company’s growing favor of the technology and its capabilities in the mobile sector.
Company now part of the Board of Directors
In upgrading its membership, Qualcomm is now a part of the NFC Forum Board of Directors and will play a managing role in the association from now on. The company has a long history with the NFC Forum, contributing a wide variety of technical information on the capabilities of NFC chips to the association and its committees. Qualcomm believes that NFC technology is capable of driving seamless user experiences in the mobile space, as well as in other markets.
NFC technology beginning to expand beyond mobile payments
NFC technology is most commonly used in mobile commerce, but has promising prospects in other sectors. The technology could be used in marketing to great effect, as it is capable of engaging consumers and providing them with digital content quickly. NFC can also be used as an efficient form of information distribution and data sharing. Qualcomm and the NFC Forum are committed to seeing the possibilities of the technology flourish and see more attention in numerous industries.
NFC Forum to make use of Qualcomm technology and expertise
The NFC Forum is expected to benefit greatly from the technology that Qualcomm will provide as a member of the Board of Directors. Qualcomm will also participate in testing and certification programs that are launched by the NFC Forum. Qualcomm is investing heavily in the future of NFC technology, believing that it could be a revolution for various aspects of business that are becoming increasingly reliant on the mobile space.
