Event Info / FAQ

What is NFC?

Near Field Communication (NFC) is a standards-based short-range wireless connectivity technology that makes life easier and more convenient for consumers around the world by making it simpler to make transactions, exchange digital content, and connect electronic devices with a touch. NFC is compatible with hundreds of millions of contactless cards and readers already deployed worldwide.

ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY:
Near Field Communication (NFC) is a contact-less communication technology based on a radio frequency (RF) field using a base frequency of 13.56 MHz. NFC technology is perfectly designed to exchange data between two devices through a simple touch gesture.

WHAT IT DOES:
NFC is a standards-based short-range wireless connectivity technology that makes your smartphones, wearables, tablets and other devices even smarter.

NFC IN ACTION:
NFC provides a range of benefits to consumers and businesses through its inherent advantageous characteristics:

– Intuitive: NFC interactions require no more than a simple touch
– 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 ISO, ECMA, and ETSI standards
– Technology-enabling: NFC facilitates fast and simple setup of wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, WiFi, etc.)
– Inherently secure: NFC transmissions are short range (from a touch to a few centimeters)
– Interoperable: NFC works with existing contactless card technologies
– Security-ready: NFC has built-in capabilities to support secure applications
