Welcome to Near Field Communication NFC, in this article we will get to know more about NFC technologies and how it can make our life better.
Near Field Communications (NFC) is a short range, zero configuration, wireless communication, it evolves from radio frequency identification (RFID) and inter-working technology, combining induction card reader, induction card with peer-to-peer function on a single chip to identify and exchange data with compatible devices over short distances.It is a set of standards for smartphones and other similar devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bring them into close proximity, usually no more than a few centimeters.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology designed to allow objects, animals and even human beings to be identified, located, and tracked using radio frequency signals. RFID can be used for a variety of applications, many of which have to do with tracking of objects. However, NFC may not be suitable for applications where ultra-high availability is a requirement. NFC allows a device, usually a mobile phone, to collect data from another device or NFC tag at close range.
NFC is targeted for personal use mostly with mobile phones.Near field communication (NFC) technology allows easily and intuitively use your smartphone for some special purposes.The technology is widely used in Japan and South Korea at present,Mobile phone users with payment function phones can traveled across the country: their mobile phone can be used as the airport boarding validation, building entrance guard key, Transportation card, credit card, payment card, etc.
NFC is getting popular, you might have seen people tapping their phone on smart movie posters, making mobile payments in McDonald or using NFC tags for home automation. If store is equipped with NFC tags associated with a product, customer can find useful information about that product by waving his/her smartphone over NFC tag. With smartphone-integrated NFC technologies, you can easily touch your phone to purchase items, share business cards, download discount coupons and so on. You will see many NFC-based new usages will be developed in the future.
There are endless possibilities for NFC technologies. With the growing and developing electric industry, technology continues to spread out, revealing more and more applications available for end users. Further applications are produced, as more and more people are using NFC and it has become ubiquitous.
