UPM RFID and Wireless Sensor Technologies have joined forces to deliver near field communication (NFC) products and services to seamlessly connect the physical and online worlds via wireless sensors and devices. Wireless Sensor Technologies, located in Los Angeles and Seattle, US, sells a comprehensive NFC product range based on UPM RFIDs NFC tags and inlays through its BuyNFCTags.com online store. The company also offers a variety of NFC readers, software development kits and unique NFC products, as well as customization services including printing and bulk serialized encoding.
Wireless Sensor Technologies software division, GoToTags.com, has released several NFC software packages and services to enable and power the growing NFC market. The GoToTags Android NFC application supports tag reading, writing and sharing, and is available free on the Google Android Market. GoToTags has also developed a Microsoft Windows NFC application and NET-based software development kit which gives Windows computers access to NFC functionality. To extend the basic NFC tag capabilities, GoToTags is developing a set of online application programming interfaces (APIs) and services that provide ownership, location and other meaningful metadata to NFC tags, along with a rich set of data analytics.
