Joseph Wei, VP of Marketing & Business Development, Wong’s Intl. Corp./Wireless Dynamics, Inc.

Near Field Communication (NFC) for Mobile Commerce and Beyond

Mr. Joseph Wei, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development, Wong’s International Corp./Wireless Dynamics, Inc.; Program Chair, Liaison to the NFC Community at IEEE Consumer Electronics Society

Joseph Wei, Vice Chair of the IEEE Consumer Electronics Society (Santa Clara Valley), Co-chair of the SVC Wireless Entrepreneur SIG, and Member of the Berani Group, introduces near field communications (NFC) technology.  NFC enables simplified transactions and data exchange between two wireless devices at ranges of a few centimeters. For example, a smartphone with an NFC chip could make a credit card payment or serve as a keycard or ID card.

The session also addresses the prospects for NFC technology in Asia markets, where other mobile payment systems have been in use for the last seven or eight years. Mr. Wei has over 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur and a successful operating executive at Inventec, SGI, NEC and Digital Equipment Corporation. He recently founded the Silicon Valley NFC Meetup Group to foster collaboration in the NFC eco-system of suppliers, developers and branded companies.

This is the 7th session in the US-Asia Technology Management Center series of public talks on “Mobile Internet Businesses and Technologies in Asia.”
