  • RFID Access Control: A Comparison of Seven Leading Technologies
    Published July 2015
    RFID-based access-control and cashless-payment systems are now standard for large-scale festivals and tech-forward, high-profile events. Such systems eliminate costs and increase revenue. But each event and solution provider is different. TourTech explains how to determine which partner is right for your unique event, and which ones to trust. This document provides a short overview of each company, along with a comparison chart and standout features. (9 pages)
  • Networking for Industrial Machine Building
    Published July 2015
    Companies creating industrial machinery for fabrication, assembly and testing constantly upgrade the capabilities of their machines, requiring free-flowing data within the machines, as well as between those devices and the headquarters of their builders. This enables new business models focused on monetization of consumables or service, reduces customization costs, increases machine availability and provides end users with simpler integration into their facility and logistics systems. This free flow of information has been called the Industrial Internet of Things. National Instruments' Todd Walter explains how the IEEE and the AVnu Alliance are working to create updates to standard Ethernet to support the converged network needs for high-speed, reliable closed-loop control, and remote data access over standard IT infrastructure.

  • Cutting-edge Automatic Anti-Collision Mechanism
    Published July 2015
    Autoplant System's Daksh Arora presents a concept to eradicate the problem of rail accidents using RFID technology to monitor the precise positions of trains.
  • Increasing Visibility, Reducing Costs: How Asset Lifecycle Management Can Save Millions in Data Center Total Cost of Ownership
    Published June 2015
    RF Code's new white paper, which is focused on physical assets in the data center, explains how the Internet of Things and asset lifecycle management can help businesses save millions of dollars in capital expenditures and operational expenditures, as well as reduce risk and enable business growth.

  • Messaging Technologies for the Industrial Internet and the Internet of Things
    Published June 2015
    The most important messaging technologies proposed as the foundation of the next generation of Internet of Things (and, more specifically, Industrial Internet) applications are reviewed in this white paper from PrismTech, which offers a comparison between DDS, AMQP, MQTT, JMS, REST, CoAP and XMPP. An understanding of both the architecture and the message- and data-sharing requirements of each target system is an important prerequisite for choosing the most appropriate messaging solution.

  • Understanding the Real-World ROI for RFID in Retail
    Published June 2015
    With RFID, inventory counting can be performed faster, more frequently and more accurately than with traditional bar-code-based methods, leading to significant reductions in out-of-stocks and markdowns, with corresponding improvements in both revenue and gross margin. ChainLink Research and Tyco Retail Solutions examine the mechanisms that create benefits and the criteria that make categories suitable, and provide examples of results from the field. (16 pages)
  • Adopting Next-Generation Labeling Technology Enhances Enterprise Agility and Reduces Costs
    Published May 2015
    Labeling is frequently a background process that doesn't receive attention unless it causes a problem. As a result, bar-code and RFID labeling practices and software have become dated at many enterprises failing to keep pace with changing business needs. Companies continually look deeper into their operations and farther across their supply chains for opportunities to become more efficient. Often, they need to look no farther than their labeling processes for opportunities to improve responsiveness and reduce costs. This white paper, from NiceLabel, identifies the hidden costs, inefficiencies and risks resulting from legacy operations, and explains why a modern label-management platform is well-suited to current enterprise needs.

  • RFID-based IoT Technology Pushes the Envelope of Production Efficiencies for Composite Component Manufacturing
    Published May 2015
    Aerospace companies are deploying advanced control and measurement applications that leverage the benefits of the Internet of Things. To make the IoT useful, one must turn data into knowledge, and then move up to context-aware optimized decision-making. Plataine discusses how companies can implement RFID-based IoT technologies at production plants. (2 pages)
