Near field communication (NFC) is a set of ideas and technologies that enable smartphones and other devices to establish radio communication with each other by touching them together or bringing them into proximity, typically a distance of 10 cm (3.9 in) or less.
Each full NFC device can work in 3 modes: NFC target (acting like a credential), NFC initiator (as a reader) and NFC peer to peer.
Mobile Payment Adoption
Canadians tap-and-pay at thousands of retailers from right across Canada. In fact, more so than any other nation. Truth be told: Canada is ready for mass NFC mobile payment adoption. NFC Technology is enabling mobile payment transactions to occur throughout the world. It’s coming to Canada. Google Wallet is an NFC hybrid payment model: consumers use contact-less NFC capability to pay at the POS, but the actual payment information is stored in the cloud, not in a secure element.
