Connecting the Mobile Phone with the Internet of Things – Benefits of EPC and NFC Compatibility

Thomas Wiechert & Florian Michahelles

abstract This paper presents the Near Field Communication (NFC) and Electronic Product Code (EPC) technologies.

While both are Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technologies, there are several compatibility issues which could prevent both technologies from achieving their full potential.

This paper describes the technologies' common potentials, open issues, and finally the necessary steps to achieve the compatibility of both technologies.

According to the ABI Research several billion NFC compatible devices will be shipped to consumers within the next 5 years. This would make them the largest RFID reader infrastructure world wide.

A lack of compatibility of item level RFID tags could prevent consumers from reading these tags.
