|20130225079||Providing Continued Operation of NFC Mobile Devices and Tags - Methods and apparatuses are described herein for providing continued operation of NFC-enabled mobile devices and NFC-enabled tags. The techniques described herein relate to methods and systems using a short-range frequency-enabled tag that can be applied to a short-range frequency-enabled mobile device, resulting in the reduction of interference between the internal short-range frequency circuitry of the mobile device and the short-range frequency receiver and transmitter circuitry of the tag—particularly when communicating with other short-range frequency devices. The techniques provide the advantage of enabling use of both the internal short-range frequency capabilities of the mobile device and the short-range frequency capabilities of the tag, leading to flexible and dynamic applications that leverage both sets of features, as well as access to a wider variety of current and future applications.||08-29-2013|
|20130222107||Cloud Secure Channel Access Control - Methods and systems are described herein for providing configuration and access control of a card reader using a secure channel between the card reader and a remote computing device. The card reader transmits a request for service to the remote computing device via a cloud-based communications network. The remote computing device receives the request for service via the cloud-based communications network and generates service instructions based on the received request for service. The remote computing device transmits the service instructions to the card reader via the cloud-based communications network. The card reader receives the service instructions from the remote computing device via the cloud-based communications network and configures operational settings based on the received service instructions.||08-29-2013|
|20130221094||Method and System for Providing Identity, Authentication, and Access Services - Described herein are methods and systems for providing identity, authentication, and access control services in a mobile environment utilizing data encoded tags. A server computing device receives tag data and user data from a mobile device, the tag data read from a data-encoded tag in proximity to the mobile device using a short-range communication protocol, and the user data stored on the mobile device. The server computing device authenticates a user of the mobile device based on the user data, determines whether the user is authorized to access an access point associated with the data-encoded tag, transmits a message to the access point that instructs the access point to grant user access if the user is authorized, receives a response from the access point indicating that user access is granted and transmits a message to the mobile device indicating to the user that access is granted to the access point.||08-29-2013|
|20130214899||RFID Access Control Reader with Enhancements - Systems are described herein for providing card reader configuration and access control, including a card reader, a remote computing device, and a communications network coupled to the card reader and the remote computing device. The card reader is configured to connect to the remote computing device via the communications network, transmit a request to the remote computing device via the communications network, receive data from the remote computing device via the communications network, and configure operational settings based on the received data. The remote computing device is configured to receive the request from the card reader via the communications network, generate data responsive to the request, and transmit the data to the card reader via the communications network.||08-22-2013|
|20130201004||Proximity Devices and Systems that Support Multiple Formats - Described herein is a radio-frequency identification (RFID) credential configured to provide a plurality of message formats. The RFID credential includes a low-frequency proximity chip. The proximity chip includes a controller having a protocol sequencing module, an analog front end, a modes register, and a modulator. The protocol sequencing module is programmed to deliver messages associated with the plurality of message formats to the analog front end using the modes register and the modulator, the delivery of the messages occurring in a sequential manner based on the message format of the message. The modes register is configured to store a plurality of message formats, and one or more bits in each message format identify the message format type.||08-08-2013|
|20130155107||Systems and Methods for Providing an Augmented Reality Experience - Methods and systems, including computer program products, are described for providing an augmented reality experience. A Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled mobile device reads data from a data-encoded tag associated with a physical object. The mobile device captures an image. The mobile device transmits the read data to a server computing device. The mobile device retrieves, from the server computing device, data elements associated with the physical object. The mobile device generates an augmented image based on the capture image and the data elements associated with the physical object.||06-20-2013|
