We help you through the entire design-in process: from requirement analysis, hardware and firmware development, to prototyping, testing and debugging stages.
Today NFC is a natural connectivity technology for the IoT. NFC solves numerous challenges of connecting, commissioning and controlling IoT devices.
The Internet of Things (IoT) revolution touches every facet of our lives, expanding from smart connected homes, smarter cities and factories to wearables or healthcare devices.
By connecting billions of devices, the IoT promises to improve how we live, work and play and it turns our homes, cars, offices and cities into smart, interactive environments.
With almost 40 billion connected devices expected by 2020 and over one billion NFC-enabled devices already on the market, NFC plays a key role in making the Internet of Things a working reality.
Even though IoT applications are growing rapidly, there are still challenges to wide-scale adoption.
NFC is uniquely positioned to enable and simplify the IoT experience for the consumer. It has the features and functionality to foster wide-scale adoption, bringing:
- An inexpensive way to add intelligence to our devices
- The ability to connect the unconnected
- Easy user control with expressed intent, by just a tap
- Easy network access and commissioning
- Security & confidentiality through its intrinsic short range.
At MobileKnowledge we believe that security and connectivity are key pillars for guaranteeing the reliability, safety and quality of the IoT revolution. We offer our services and expertise to help you through the entire design-in process: from requirement analysis, hardware and firmware development, to prototyping, testing and debugging stages.
Controlling devices with no user interface
Any NFC-enabled phone or tablet can serve as a temporary touchscreen for your product, enabling sophisticated interactions and configurability, even if the device is unpowered. This is especially convenient for completely sealed items or products with a rudimentary interface unable to support a display because they are too small or increase the cost.

Connecting our smart nodes to the network–what is known as network commissioning–can be complicated and cumbersome (e.g. installing keys or difficult button push sequences).
There is a risk of user error and frustration in these steps.
NFC provides a standard secure mechanism for consumers to on-board smart devices with just one tap

Authentication & identification
NFC is the technology that can easily and safely protect your products and assets. Make sure that the right item is used for a given task, combat counterfeits and protect manufacturing revenue while enabling new user experiences such as instantly setting adjustments are just few examples of what can be done.
