How can I use my NFC-enabled mobile device with the Brother NFC-enabled machine?

NFC (Near Field Communication) is a new technology that allows for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connection between two devices that are in close range of each other.


Using NFC, you can easily establish wireless connection between your NFC-enabled mobile device (such as smartphones and tablets) and Brother NFC-enabled machine by touching them together.
