Shanghai, New Orleans, Rome, Honolulu and London are all examples of cities where the NFC Forum previously has been arranged. NetPort.Karlshamn hosted and welcomed 120 international guests and 57 companies from around the world when the conference was held in Sweden for the first time in 2010.
NFC Forum is a nonprofit organization that works with development of Near Field Communication (NFC) technology. During the conference, discussions were held and a decisions were made regarding the standardization of NFC technology.
NFC is a standardized wireless technology with a short range, which enables simple and safe two-way communication between electronic devices. For example, with built-in NFC technology your mobile phone will be able to pay tickets, conduct wireless transactions, access digital information simply by holding the phone near another device with NFC.
– NFC is currently quite unknown as a concept, but in five years, it will be equally used as SMS is today. It will replace both your wallet, keys, Travel Cards and more, says Samuel Henningsson, CEO of NetPort.Karlshamn.
