What is NFC?
NFC – Near Field Communication is a subset of Radio Frequency Identification – RIF. The RFID is an international standard that was approved back in 2003-2004. It is used in radio communications.
Near Field Communication has a lot of applications and the foreseen benefits of NFC technology are more prominent. NFC technology is applied in areas such as a simplified set of Wi-Fi and data exchange. Also, NFC also allows for communication between NFC tags and NFC device. These tags are unpowered.
By using NFC Tags and QR Codes, business entrepreneurs can contact clients faster. In this day and age, clients are interested in instant information about products and services in which can be provided by using such tags and codes. Pet owners can now locate their dogs, cats, etc easier and faster.
Accessing information from QR codes requires the client to have a smart phone with a QR code reading app. There are tons of sites and companies offering such apps for download. Entrepreneurs who want to incorporate QR codes into their products should look up for Near Field Communication companies which specialize in NFC Tags and QR Codes. They can compare the various patterns available and choose one that bests fit their products. QR Codes on Smart Pet Tags by PetGishi are custom-made and are designed to meet your requirements.
WHAT IS NFC USED FOR?
There are three essential application fields of NFC:
- NFC for Reading out Information: NFC-enabled devices read information stored at Radio Frequency Identification – RFID tag, installed in smart labels and posters.
- Card Emulation/Google Wallet: NFC-enabled devices serve as smart proximity cards used for performing transactions like ticketing and payments. Google has used this technology to launch “Google Wallet” which is a business scheme that enables clients to pay for goods with their smartphones.
- Shared Mode: NFC enables two devices to connect with each other to exchange information.
TRENDS OF NFC TECHNOLOGY
It is expected that the NFC Tags’ field-of-range will soon expand. Presently, the range is about two or three inches. This causes restrictions when interfacing with each additional device, however, the NFC standard forum is reckoning to have some real co-operations from the Bluetooth manufacturers to enhance Bluetooth services. If Bluetooth technology is enhanced and cross-incorporated with Near Field Communication, then data exchange will be faster and its availability would be spread over a larger selection of gadgets including tablets and PCs.
- Easier Data Transfer
NFC has been around for a long while. The world just started paying attention to the development of NFC applications lately. It is very easy to transfer data between NFC-enabled devices.
It is less complex than Bluetooth where a password is required by both users to enable data exchange, yet it is more secure. The close range of NFC makes it for virtually impossible to hack. The future seems pretty bright for NFC.
- NFC In Transport
Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile are a number of large multinational organizations that are researching the use of NFC Tags in transportation. If there are positive results in this research, you may no longer wait in long queues to book a bus/train ticket, or even carry your passport to the airport. In the next few years, public transportation would be outfitted with NFC readers which will allow public to walk into buses and trains just by tapping their NFC cards or NFC phones.
Indeed, even at airports people can buy tickets and pass through security checks to their various destinations using their NFC-enabled smartphones.
NFC In Pet Tags
Smart Pet Tag makes it easy for anyone with an NFC-enabled smartphone to help locate your pet. There are easy-to-use mobile applications that help you configure the tag and also keep all of your pet’s records.
Smart Pet Tags comes with a QR Code on the back to make it easy to scan the tag if your pet is found. The barcode can also be scanned with a 2D barcode reader on your smartphone.
On the app, the pet profile is designed to track your pet really fast. It has the pet’s name, home address, picture, and a customized message for anyone who finds your pet. If your mobile number is used as the “customized message”, the person who finds your pet can then text you a map of their location. This means your GPS – Global Positioning System has to be activated on your smartphone.
The future of the NFC technology promises nothing short of amazing. Yet, it is important to note that NFC also faces challenges and obstacles that are significantly great in the achievement of that amazing future. A lot of organizations are settling for a combination of NFC Tags and QR Codes to provide the basic information about their products and services. This makes it accessible to all smartphone users across the globe.
Since the inception of Near Field Communication back in 2004, it would be inaccurate to say that NFC is a new technology. That being stated, aggressive research and innovation into NFC have made us believe that it can provide much more than the current application. If users of the NFC Tag find the reading facility missing on their phone, they can still access the site of the product by using his smartphone camera and QR code reader which is accessible in most smartphones.
Money has been the driving source of the renewed interest in this technology. By using suitable NFC Tags and QR Codes, your company can provide better customer service which is fundamental for maintaining a successful business.
