March 17, 2005—Research firm IDC released a Cisco-commissioned report that emphasizes the upcoming assault on corporate networks from the flood of data created by RFID implementations. As the number of RFID-tagged items and read points are deployed throughout an enterprise, the amount of data created will likely bog down existing systems, which were not designed with RFID in mind. Furthermore, RFID deployments will no doubt "creep" over time, so that the number of tags and read-points will increase steadily well into the future. IDC therefore recommends not only preparing existing networks for the anticipated near-term RFID-generated data spike, but also designing the networks to be scalable so that they can be expanded easily to handle the unpredictable RFID-creep years down the line.
