• NFC word stands for Near Field Communication
• NFC is one of the latest wireless communication
technologies. As a short-range wireless connectivity
technology, NFC offers safe yet simple and intuitive
communication between NFC enabled electronic
• Enables the exchange of data between devices
over a distance of up to 20 centimeters.
• NFC-enabled devices can simply point or touch
their making application and data usage easy and
• Nokia is active in the area of NFC since 2004
• Together with Philips and Sony, founded the NFC
• Currently, global membership in the NFC Forum had
exceeded 140 organizations.
What’s the use?
Sharing – Data, photos, web links
Pairing – Making a connection between
equipment no need for passwords.
Transaction – Pay for anything

• Passive and powered by a magnetic field
• NFC operates in two modes
• Active Mode: In this mode, both devices are generating their
own RF fields. This would be in the case that two mobile
devices are being used to exchange data.
• Passive Mode: In this mode, one of the devices generates the
RF field and the other device uses the field to power itself and
communicate. The active device is usually the “reader” and
the passive device is the “tag”.
• NFC is based on RFID technology that uses magnetic field
induction to enable communication between electronic
devices in close proximity. NFC operates at 13.56 MHz
• For two devices to communicate using NFC, one device must
have an NFC reader/writer and one must have an NFC tag.
The tag is essentially an integrated circuit containing data,
connected to an antenna, that can read and written by the
Access Control: Replacing traditional keys for either physical access
(hotel room) or control (starting a car)
Ticketing: Replacing paper tickets for social events and public
Contactless Payments: Mobile payments debited from financial or MNO
Interactive World: Marketing and exchange of information such as
schedules, maps, business card and coupon delivery using NFC
Media Sharing: Transfer images, videos, music between mobile phones
Social media e.g. "Like" on Facebook, "Follow" on Twitter via NFC smart
stickers in retail stores
• Intuitive – NFC interactions require no more than a simple
• 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 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 centimetres)
• Interoperable – NFC works with existing contactless card
• Security-ready - NFC has built-in capabilities to support secure
