Large Scale Contactless Payment Trials Begin In Atlanta
Dec 14, 2005, 1:22 PM by (staff)
Philips, together with Cingular, Nokia and Chase Bank, is bringing contactless payment to the Philips arena in Atlanta. Thrashers and Hawks season ticket holders with a Cingular and Chase account can then use a Nokia 3220 with an NFC shell to pay for items or download content at over 150 concession stands and kiosks around the arena. Near Field Communication (NFC) is a technology similar to RFID, but only works when the chip is within a few inches of the reader. It can work as a credit card, debit account, or a myriad of other functions such as train ticket or door key. FeLiCa, a technology based on NFC, has already been adopted as the standard contactless system by all Japanese carriers, banks, and many transportation systems as well. Previously Motorola conducted NFC trials in Florida with the help of Mastercard, which brands NFC as "PayPass."
