 About the Report

 Near Field Communications - A Technology and Patent Landscape Report

NFC is a technical standard  for interoperability and development of near-field communication technology.

This Dolcera exclusive report on Near Field Communication technology patents covers the following areas:

  1. Patents are relevant to standards such as ISO/IEC 14443, ECMA-340 and ECMA-352 and that may read on the standards (priority date of the patents is before the year 2004).
  2. Patents that describe the use of near-field communication technology to deliver various services to consumers (application patents)
  3. Patents that are apparent improvements to the standard-essential patents.
  4. Hardware-related patents that consist of the constructional part of the transmitter/receiver antenna or coil involved in NFC communication.

Key features of this report:

  1. The Dolcera team of NFC subject-matter experts analyzed over 6,000 patents from worldwide patent sources to provide this analysis.
  2. They identified nearly 1,500 patents relevant to the NFC technology and standards.
  3. This report also includes our expert insights into the NFC patent landscape.
  4. We deliver the final report using our unique collaboration platform that makes this gigantic information store easy to use at no extra cost.

Who should buy this report?

Anyone who has intellectual property, licensing, business development, strategy, product development, innovation, or research & development responsibilities.
