The march toward the digital wallet continues.

In Barcelona, Spain, at The Mobile World Congress, the world’s largest exhibition for the mobile industry, and incorporates a thought-leadership conference featuring prominent executives representing global mobile operators, device manufacturers, technology providers, vendors, and content owners, Visa, MasterCard, Google and eBay all announced industry partnerships and software platforms that will allow for mobile devices to conduct financial transactions by simply touching devices together. Near Field Communication (NFC) is here!

Near field communication is a form of contactless communication between devices like smartphones or tablets. Contactless communication allows a user to wave the smartphone over a NFC compatible device to send information without needing to touch the devices together or go through multiple steps setting up a connection.

Vanguard Protex Global has a new sensor that powers and alarms handheld devices enabling the demonstration of NFC.

Vanguard will be showcasing and demonstrating this technology, along with our other new products, at GlobalShop on April 16 -18 in Chicago at McCormick Place. Click here to register for your complimentary GlobalShop pass or call today for more details – 877-477-4874.
