Near field communication (NFC) technology allows smartphones and other NFC-compatible devices to communicate with each other. It’s a short-range wireless technology which is easy and convenient to use. With a single touch, it can provide credentials for access control systems, exchange/access digital content, connect electronic devices or make transactions. Its two-way interaction ability allows users to establish connections with ease.
Near field communication enables users to share data at a distance less than 4 centimetres and a maximum communication speed of 424 kbps. Some applications of NFC include: Access control, security, anti-counterfeiting, marketing and promotion, mobile payment, public transport, tracking and tracing, ticketing, social media and more.
