            Introduction

            Asset Infinity has implemented NFC (Near Field Communication), a short range wireless technology to share data. Like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, and all manner of other wireless signals, NFC works on the principle of sending information over radio waves. Through NFC data is send through electromagnetic induction between two devices.
