What is Near Field Communication (NFC) - Definition?

NFC stands for Near Field Communication. It can be defined as the communication protocols or you can say wireless communication technology that enables data to be shared between the smartphones and other devices. The distance between the devices should be approximately 10 cm. Due to the shorter range of NFC, it provides high range of security as compared to Bluetooth. This technology will change how we use our mobile devices in near future.

The smartphone or any device that is equipped with NFC can share the information very easily with a simple wave exchange. PayPal and much new mobile payment system work on this technology. It is an upgrade to the already existing technology RFID.

NFC can also work when one of the devices is not powered by a battery. It also does not require pairing. This is why it is faster and easier to use.
