GSMA Backs NFC and ENUM Technology
Nov 18, 2008, 3:05 PM by Eric M. Zeman
The GSM Association has recommended that most mainstream handsets incorporate near-field communications (NFC) capabilities by the middle of 2009. NFC technology is used for things such as completing retail transactions by paying with a mobile phone. The GSMA is also championing ENUM technology. ENUM translates a phone number into an IP-based address, making it simple and transparent for users to initiate a wide range of IP-based communications via their existing phone numbers and handset address books. The Carrier ENUM service is being branded as PathFinder, and will serve as a means for making the telephone number a universal way to enable IP-based applications on handsets.
