NFC stands for “Near Field Communication” and, as the name implies, it enables short range communication between compatible devices. This requires at least one transmitting device, and another to receive the signal. A range of devices can use the NFC standard and will be considered either passive or active.
It is a specification that allows USB devices such as tablets or smartphones, to act as a host allowing other USB devices such as USB flash drives, digital cameras, mice or keyboards to be attached to them. Use of USB OTG allows those devices to switch back and forth between the roles of host and device. For instance, a mobile phone may read from removable media as the host device, but present itself as a USB mass storage device when connected to a host computer.
RFID is the use of radio waves to read and capture information stored on a tag attached to an object. A tag can be read from up several feet away and does not need to be within direct line-of-sight of the reader.
Wi-Fi is a wireless networking technology that allows computers and other devices to communicate over a wireless signal. Wifi is the standard way computers connect to wireless networks.
Bluetooth is a telecommunications industry specification that describes how mobile devices, computers and other devices can easily communicate with each other using a short-range wireless connection.
