NFC Specs Updated for Mobile, Tags

The head of the NFC Forum provides perspective on the latest update of the group's specifications. The 2017 Technical Specification Release from the NFC Forum is made up of 21 new or updated near field communication (NFC) technical specifications.  The new specifications are a big step toward ensuring interoperability between NFC solutions in the market with various existing infrastructures, unifying new and existing specs to ensure interoperability and functionality across all solutions using NFC technology. The 2017 updates were driven by a number of market trends including a prediction that 36 billion connected devices will be in use by 2020 in the Internet of Things. That’s four IoT devices for every person on the planet, a big increase from the already more than two billion NFC-enabled smartphones currently in use.
