NFMI

(Near Field Magnetic Induction) A close range communications technique that uses a modulated magnetic field to induce a current into a receiving coil. More power efficient than radio frequency (RF) methods, NFMI signals can maintain their integrity in the midst of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, cellular and other radio waves. See telecoil mode and NFC.

Those fields and the often classified nature of their information opened the gateway for NFMI to succeed, Abrams says, in that Bluetooth essentially had to prove inadequate for their needs in such a way that they were willing to adopt new technology.
This paradox is the major benefit of NFMI. The performance should, therefore, be evaluated in terms of the efficiency of the communication bubble.
