NFC (Near Field Communication)

Near field communication (NFC) is a set of standards for smartphones and similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into close proximity, usually no more than a few inches. Present and anticipated applications include contactless transactions, data exchange, and simplified setup of more complex communications such as Wi-Fi. Communication is also possible between an NFC device and an unpowered NFC chip, called a "tag".

Following the industry trends and customer requirements ACT believes the SIM card needs to become a secure storage element for contactless applications, and Near Field Communication (NFC) technology to bring new growth opportunities in the mobile telecommunications market. With the SWP allows a contactless application on the SIM to achieve these goals. Here the benefits of our NFC (SWP) Proposition:

• Security the SIM as a secure element, bringing high levels of confidence. SIM storing secure applications

• Universal & cost effective

• Service continuity, battery independent

• Standardized (ETSI, SCP, 3GPP, Global Platform)

“Mobile NFC applications need to be performed in a secure environment (SE). The UICC provides both logical security and physical security.” (GSMA)
