"South Korea's proprietary mobile RFID technology, known as Object Identifier (OID), has been acknowledged as an international standard by the Geneva-based International Organisation for Standardisation (IOS)", reported South Korean Commerce, Industry and Energy Ministry. The ISO- standardised OID will help the country to protect its domestic mobile RFID market.

A ministry spokesman said the mobile RFID technology, developed by the state-run Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute, allows mobile phones to read a wide range of RFID tags. Through OID-equipped handsets, users can read detailed product data on RFID tags.

With the ISO-standardised RFID technology, South Korea will be able to protect its domestic mobile RFID market, which is expected to reach Rs.3, 308.99 crore ($752 million) in 2010, said the ministry spokesman.

The country's mobile telecommunications service carriers, including SK Telecom and KTF, are now testing the relevant services with various industries, according to the ministry.
