Internet Protocol (IP) phones contain line keys that can be used to configure speed dialing for one or more contacts. Currently, to configure a line key, a user manually enters a contact’s information to configure a speed dial by using the keypad on the IP phone, which can be a time-consuming and arduous task. Moreover, manual entry increases the likelihood of inaccurate information being input by the user. In order to address such issues, proposed herein are techniques for leveraging near-field communication (NFC) technology on IP phones and mobile devices to efficiently and securely transmit contact information data from a mobile application to an IP phone. With one touch of a button on the mobile application’s graphical user interface (GUI), the user can activate the mobile device’s NFC capability to transmit contact information data that can be used to configure a speed dial line key on the IP phone.
