Near Field Communication (NFC) technology makes our life easier and more convenient for consumers around the world by making it simpler to make transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices with a touch. Its a cost effective way to ensure contactless information exchange.NFC is an evolution of the original specifications used to create RFID tags and contactless payment systems. ISO/IEC 14443 defines specifications for identification cards, contactless integrated circuit cards, and proximity cards, which for the purposes of discussion here we’ll call “tags.”
NFC harmonizes today’s diverse contactless technologies, enabling current and future solutions.
Near Field Communication provides a variety of deployment scenarios. Some of which are
- Customer Engagement Programs
- Access control
- Consumer electronics
- Loyalty and coupons
- Educational Services
- Ticketing Solutions
Key Benefits of NFC
NFC provides a range of benefits to consumers and businesses, such as:
Intuitive: NFC interactions require no more than a simple touch and also
Versatile: NFC is ideally suited to the broadest range of industries, environments, and uses
Open and standards-based: The underlying layers of NFC technology follow universally implemented ISO, ECMA, and ETSI standards
Technology-enabling: NFC facilitates fast and simple setup of wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, etc.)
Inherently secure: NFC transmissions are short range (from a touch to a few centimeters)
Interoperable: NFC works with existing contactless card technologies
Security-ready: NFC has built-in capabilities to support secure applications
Worldwide acceptance: NFC will soon become the de-facto standard of contactless transactions and payments.
