Proposal: Near Field Communication (NFC) Components and Devices
Near Field Communication (NFC): Emerging Market Analysis Is NFC the future of fast, secure, wireless transaction processing?
Near Field Communications (NFC) may be one of those rare, once in a decade, technologies that revolutionizes how business is conducted. It is a short-range wireless connectivity method enabling fast, secure, high-bandwidth data communication between two or more devices very close together. Already, NFC solutions span a wide spectrum of implementations – from benign to mission critical. Solutions utilizing NFC include proximity cards used in building access control, key fobs at gas pumps and ‘smart’ charge cards.
The ‘newest’ iteration of NFC may be the most powerful and disruptive yet. Jointly developed by NXP (Philips) and Sony, it uses magnetic field induction to establish a peer-to-peer (P2P) data exchange network. Once an NFC connection is configured, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi can be used for longer range communication or transferring larger amounts of data. This latest NFC approach is radically different than previous solutions because it focuses on enabling cell phones to host NFC-enabled transactions across a virtually unlimited range of applications.
