Keolabs wins NFC Forum approval for new validation solution
Smart objects and NFC testing tools and services specialist Keolabs has had its NFC Forum Digital Validation solution accredited by the NFC Forum, a non-proﬁt industry association that advances the use of NFC technology.
The solution enables companies designing NFC-capable products to verify that their protocol implementation to NFC Forum standards is compliant and thus ensure they are interoperable with other NFC products. Ensuring broad interoperability of NFC objects in turn means they can be used in a variety of applications such as payment, transportation ticketing, customer loyalty applications, site-based information services or pairing of mobiles and other systems.
Keolabs’ validation solution eases the challenges of in-house testing by providing integrated hardware/software solutions, as well as open access to testing scenarios and testing results.
The Keolabs NFC Forum Digital Validation solution is based on the SCRIPTIS software environment and ProxiLAB communication emulator whose capabilities are tailored to smart card and NFC testing needs. SCRIPTIS integrates manager, editor, result viewer and reporting in a single interface for greater efﬁciency in test bench conﬁguration, test campaign management and results analysis.
The NFC Forum Digital Validation solution is a natural extension of Keolabs’ technology-speciﬁc testing solutions for smart cards (ISO 14443 A/B, FeliCa, ISO7816) and mobile phones (NCF IP1/IP2, SWP – HCI/HDLC). The solution also complements Keolabs’ application-speciﬁc solutions for testing payment (EMV, PayPass), transportation ticketing (CIPURSE, CEN/TC 278, Mifare) and identity (e-MRTD, e-driving licence, ID card). These are all application areas where NFC opens new opportunities for the use of mobile phones.
