  • The list is endless but to name few of the places where it can be used is

    business-to-business (B2B)
    business-to-consumer (B2C),
    Interoperability with other platforms and technologies
    messaging for any kind of communication
    Routing
    and for all the kind of services that were earlier developed using ASMX, WSE, Web Services, MSMQ, and distributed stack. It also helps in creating the distributed application in a very easy manner that earlier would have involved the usage of two or more distributed technology. These custom solution were earlier not possible to develop in either web services or .NET Remoting. WCF facilitates in building these custom solutions. 
    WCF provides a Uniform programming model to creating distributed applications and has been designed to support  Service orientation.  for more information, i would advice you to have a look on
