Mobile stickers pave way for NFC and access control services


The mobile sticker format makes it easier to add closed-loop payment and loyalty systems to existing automatic fare collection or retail systems, or to augment campus identification systems with new access control capabilities. They can also be affixed to mobile phones as a bridge to NFC mobile payment services.

The stickers have an internal ferrite layer that shields electronics from interference when attached to items containing metal, such as mobile phones. To meet existing customer environments, the stickers are available with DESFire, MIFARE and iCLASS technologies, ensuring maximum flexibility in design and use.

"The stickers enable users to experience the convenience and reliability of next-generation NFC-enabled mobile payment, now, by simply attaching them to mobile phones or MP3 players for example," said David Nichols, product marketing director, Credentials, HID Global. 

HID's sticker customization program allows customers to choose from a variety of printing, laser engraving, programming, artwork and contactless chip technology options, upon request.

They come in a breakout ID-1 card format and can be printed to include serial numbers, activation codes, messages, brand elements and/or promotional text and artwork. HID Global also offers print customization in low quantities.

In the field, stickers may be printed with brand elements, custom designs or other information.
