The intertwining of telecom, banking, and M2M/IoT produces a new degree of complexity. We hope our COMPRION glossary helps you to get a good overview of all the connected terms, technologies, and concepts.
NFC tags are an application of RFID technology. They are limited in their range to only a few inches or almost touching the phone to the tag. This is done deliberately, so that tags have no effect on a phone unless there is a clear user action to 'trigger' the tag. Although phones are usually touched to tags, this does not require any 'docking' or galvanic contact with the tag, so they are still considered to be a contactless technology. When an NFC-enabled phone is placed or 'tapped' on a tag, the programmed action is undertaken. This could cause a website to be displayed, the phone switched to silent mode, or many other possible actions.
