What is NFC• NFC is a short-range wireless technology.• NFC provides unique advantages over other available wireless technologies.• The design includes a near-field transmitter and receiver to send data from one computer to another
How NFC Works :NFC is based on RFIDtechnology that usesmagnetic field inductionbetween electronicdevices in closeproximity. For twodevices to communicateusing NFC, one devicemust have an NFCreader/writer and onemust have an NFC tag.
Benefits & Features:• Not restricted to 1-to-1 communication• Multiple devices in a small area can communicate with each other using the same frequency.• Maximum transfer bit rate of 800kbps.• No special software is required.• Operation at a frequency of 13.5 MHz• No ethical concerns due to range
ApplicationSocial networking:NFC can be used in socialnetworking situations, such as sharingcontacts, photos, videos or files, and enteringmultiplayer mobile games.
ApplicationPayment by NFC:Instant payments and coupon deliveryusing your handset, as we do withyour credit card or debit card.
ApplicationIdentity documents:The NFC Forum promotes the potential for NFC-enabled devices to act as electronic identitydocuments and keycards. As NFC has a short rangeand supports encryption, it may be more suitablethan earlier, less private RFID systems.
