4 NFC inter-connection advantages
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 products implement a passive Near Field Communication device (a.k.a. a tag). It is powered by an active device like a mobile phone, when that device is within 3 cm. The Tap uses the mobile's signal and its energy. This means that Tap require no advertising signal, unlike other Bluetooth and WiFi components. This reduces power consumption, unwanted radio emissions and improves security.
When used with Bluetooth Low Energy or Wi-Fi, NFC acts as an intelligent switch. when a mobile phone is present, it initiates the wake-up and secure connection between the mobile the Tap-equipped appliance.
NFC responds to several key concerns in connected appliances:
- Discretion and reduced emissions
- Sure, intuitive device pairing
- Transaction security
- Optimization of power consumption
