4 NFC inter-connection uses and advantages explained
Near Field Communication (NFC) benefits from growing consumer recognition, but not only for its role in secure transactions. NFC is increasingly present on iOS, Android and Windows mobiles, and is positioning as a unique connectivity enabler.
The IoTize Tap solution implements a passive Near Field Communication device (a.k.a. a tag). This device is powered by an active device (ex. an NFC equipped mobile phone), when that device is within 3 cm of the Tap's NFC tag.
Combined with Bluetooth Low Energy or Wi-Fi, the NFC acts as an intelligent switch and initiates the wake-up and secure connection between a mobile device and the Tap-equipped system.
A Tap's NFC channel can be used alone as the principle channel of communication between the mobile device and the Tap-equipped system.
With these implementations, NFC responds to several key concerns in connected devices including:
- Discretion and reduced emissions
- Sure, intuitive device pairing
- Transaction security
- Optimization of power consumption
