No need for alarm bells as Over-C tags Nokia NFC replacement Wednesday 27 June 2007 PDF Print With companies increasingly embracing Near Field communication (NFC) enabled devices to provide advanced proof-of-presence, access control and other functionality, news that Nokia has announced the end of the line for its Field Force Service Manager need not ring any alarm bells. Over-C, a company that specialises in the development of advanced web application software integrated with NFC mobile phones, officially launched its Tag Event Dispatcher at the NFC Forum Members meeting in Prague today, a platform for business-critical processing of tag events generated from NFC-enabled devices At the heart of every NFC application is the tag event. The ability to process tag events quickly and effectively is the most critical aspect of any NFC-enabled application. Because NFC-enabled devices can generate thousands of tag events in any given period of time, business demands a solution that can both scale as more NFC-enabled devices are deployed and adapt to ever changing business rules with little to no impact on the mobile worker in the field. “The ideal platform must also be easy to administer and manage,” explains Michael Elliott, Managing Director of Over-C. “It must provide a means to integrate with back office systems; and it must offer a high-degree of reliability when capturing tag events from any NFC device, from any manufacturer. The Tag Event Dispatcher Server meets such needs with its Rich Internet Application (RIA) Web browser based administrative screens that include exceptional data export capabilities. “With the Tag Event Dispatcher, existing deployments of Nokia’s NFC-enabled mobile applications can continue to work without any code modifications. Customers looking for a migration solution off the Nokia Field Force Service Manager have the ability to retain previously keyed data and continue to use existing applications already deployed to NFC-enabled devices.” The underlying architecture built atop Java Enterprise Edition infrastructure provides peace of mind that the server can provide failover clustering and fault-tolerant configurations capable of scaling to respond to hundreds of thousands of deployed NFC-enabled devices. -Ends- Editors Notes: **Pictures available** General Enquiries: Tel +44 (0) 1634 880701 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Media Enquiries: Glen Goldsmith 2thefore Tel: 07812 766338 Email: email@example.com About Over-C Over-C specialises in the design and development of advanced web application software tightly integrated with Near Field Communication (NFC) devices for businesses operating a mobile workforce in the service sector.
