Understanding Near Field Communication (NFC) Technology
Payment systems and marketing loyalty programs are just the beginning for NFC technology. In addition to the mounting interest in NFC for mobile access control, NFC technology also promises to empower more efficient, effective industrial applications. Specifically, combining NFC-enabled smart mobile devices with (rugged) RFID tags offers additional benefits when compared to traditional RFID solutions.
Additionally, while the NFC standards for tags enable a broad variety of use cases and security, the concept of “trust” is not generally specified. HID Trusted Tag™ Services are available to confer trust onto items that are the subject of transactions between individuals and organisations. This white paper explores the capabilities and technological background of NFC and NFC tags enabling organisations to evaluate the potential role NFC can have in their market.
