RFID Frequently Asked Question

Where will all these PLM files be stored?

PML files will be stored in online databases that will be part of something called the EPC Information Service (formerly called a PML server). The EPC Information Service is a distributed system of managing EPC data across many computers connected to the Internet. One element of the service is to manage who has access to different types of company data. So a company might provide full access to some business partners, access to shipping information to its logistics providers and inventory data only to its retail partners. Companies may maintain their own EPC Information Service computers or outsource this to companies such as VeriSign.
