After Google has unveiled a few days ago with “Google wallet” his own NFC-based payment service, the trend can no longer be denied: Near Field Communication (or short: NFC) will prevail. But is actually under NFC? NFC is an innovative transmission technology for the exchange of data over a distance of only a few centimetres. Allows diverse information between various devices with NFC technology such as E.g.

a NFC mobile phone and a NFC terminal or a so-called day (= RFID chip) are exchanged. The credit card data can in a retail store, a car rental reservation or easy MP3 and video files, which from an NFC mobile phone to another back and should be sent.

They allow the owners of NFC mobile phones instead of simply paying with cash that they their phone only briefly on the Keep cash Terminal and then the confirm payment a PIN by entering, to increase security. However it can be a lot more services with Near Field Communication (NFC) create and will be explored at the moment, or are in the stage of development or the market introduction.

Often, the NFC will be now brought capable devices along with the SW of a joint venture for extra based on the market. Powerful corporations like Apple, Google, Citigroup and Microsoft compete in the NFC segment, which will further promote the development and spread of technology.
