Near Field Communications has become one of the buzzwords across a number of different sectors. Whilst it is primarily a mobile technology, its application to the transit and to the payment sectors has made it a topic of great interest to technical and commercial people across these sectors. Andrew Henderson of Giesecke and Devrient will talk about the development of NFC technology, the various options and give a view of where the technology will be applied and how.

The talk will explain some of the early developments to combine conactless and GSM technology, the standards on which NFC is based and how the chosen route to market will come about. The talk will also explain how the eco-system to support NFC is being developed and what the essential components are, as well as showing how these might work in a business context.
