NFC for e-ticketing/e-couponing and other new usages
We entered the Mobile Internet era. Near Field Communication (NFC) is a new short-range wireless connectivity technology with high expectations for innovative information services that emerged from the combination of contactless identification (RFID Radio Frequency Identification) and cell phones. NFC was launched in 2004 by Philips (NXP), Sony and Nokia. NFC can be used with a large variety of devices for touching connectivity: consumer electronics, mobile devices, locks, objects, printers, TV and PCs.  Consumers will be able to easily access a variety of services (m-payment, transport, travel, infotainment, culture...) and conveniently exchange information with a simple touch gesture utilizing NFC technology.
The NFC technology is revolutionizing the mobile services world and you have to know its technical aspects to exploit it today in your projects. The paper ticket or coupon is now a thing of the past. Our cell phone can be used to store virtual vouchers, transport ticket, coupons, etc.
Sky is the limit in terms of innovative content and services of our digital future where they will be location-based and touch-based!

Training's objectives
This module will give you basic knowledge of the NFC technology, addressed from the e-ticketing / e-couponing perspective. It will offer you feedbacks from local authorities having already implemented and developed NFC. Its technical section will give you practical answers to integrate NFC in your development strategy.
