WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT: NFC/Near Field Communication

 

 

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a standards-based short-range wireless connectivity technology that makes life easier and more convenient for consumers worldwide by making it simpler to make transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices with a touch. 

 

With our devices, we gave this amazing feature to your business to allow your customers decide their method of payment, this also is compatible with many contactless cards and readers used by many businesses around the world such as Apple Pay and Android Pay.

 

HOW DOES NFC WORKS? 

NFC transmits or receives data via radio waves. It’s an established standard of wireless communication, so if devices stick to the NFC protocols they’ll be able to communicate with each other. It differs from Bluetooth in that it functions through electromagnetic induction. This means there can be a passive device, such as a poster or sticker, requiring no power source of its own that can transmit data when an active device, like your smartphone, comes into contact with it.

As an active NFC device, a smartphone can send and receive data over NFC. It encompasses the full range – three modes – of NFC:

  • Reader/writer 
  • Card emulation 
  • Peer-to-peer
