  • Simplifying Security for IoT Device Engineers and Manufacturers
    Published May 2016
    The idea of providing network security to legacy embedded systems and the latest IoT devices is taking hold in the marketplace, but most vendors offer a single component, like a secure boot or a simple encrypted connection, without addressing other common attack vectors. The lack of product depth among software vendors is forcing engineers to integrate a confusing array of components from many sources, only to find that they do not play well together or impose an unwieldy demand on scarce system resources. Icon Labs' Dave West outlines four device classes with common security concerns. (5 pages)
  • Smarter Sensors: How Deep Learning Is Transforming Building Automation
    Published April 2016
    Millions of office buildings worldwide are equipped with sensor-based systems designed to conserve energy, performing such tasks as automatically turning lights on and off when someone enters or leaves a room. But a truly smart building will know how an office space is being used at every moment. PointGrab's Jonathan Laserson explains how the next generation of sensors will need to be smarter and able to source and analyze richer levels of data, enabling the execution of more sophisticated tasks that go beyond energy consumption management.

  • RFID: The Cure for the Clinical Trial Blues
    Published April 2016
    RFID is making its way into a growing number of industries as the technology matures. New markets are developing rapidly, especially in the world of clinical trials, where RFID could help speed medications to market and reduce drug-development costs by making trials more efficient and accurate. Terso Solutions' Joe Pleshek explains how RFID can provide frequent verification of clinical drugs at each stage of a trial, account for who removed or dispensed product from storage, and track subject assignment, timestamps and environmental conditions.

  • Strategies for Ensuring Integrity for Medical Tissues and Devices
    Published April 2016
    Recent advances in medical device technology, surgical procedures and tissue preservation are revolutionizing the health-care industry. However, this expanded capability requires an equally sophisticated system to track devices, prosthetics and tissues as they move through the supply chain; a mistake or shortfall can have serious consequences. Terso Solutions's Joe Pleshek explains how RFID technologies can offer near-real-time item-level visibility, safely and securely. (9 pages)
  • The Cloud and RFID: Making Deployments Seamless
    Published April 2016
    The growing acceptance of cloud computing is expected to accelerate the adoption of radio frequency identification during the next 12 to 24 months. Terso Solutions' Mark Sehmer and Nathan Pleshek explain how solution providers are leveraging the cloud to deliver systems that make RFID and the data mined by the technology more valuable than ever.

  • End-to-End, Always-On RFID Inventory Management for Retail: Analyzing the ROI
    Published March 2016
    Inventory management using fixed RFID readers provides accurate real-time inventory data, benefiting retailers in terms of revenue and gross profit uplift, omnichannel execution, shrinkage and more. Mojix explains how RFID can help retailers sell to the last item, moving from a push-inventory model to a high-visibility model, and reducing inventory while improving availability and customer service.

  • Traceability in Retail: Reducing RFID Media Costs for Best Value
    Published March 2016
    Traditional RFID label media are printed on inlays spaced at regular intervals defined years ago to help ensure accurate data encoding. On-pitch printing and encoding technology is now available that supports very close inlay spacing, which can reduce the cost of media by as much as 10 percent. This white paper, from Zebra Technologies, outlines the benefits that item-level tagging brings to the retail industry, and reveals how on-pitch printing and encoding solutions can boost the value of RFID beyond the supply chain.

  • UHF RFID: Taking Manufacturing Visibility and Control to the Next Level
    Published March 2016
    Ultrahigh-frequency RFID technology can provide manufacturing and logistics operators with longer read ranges and faster read speeds, and its simultaneous tag-reading capacity can enable more complex applications. Siemens' Michael LaGrega and Nicole Lauther provide a brief history of RFID, as well as an overview of how it works and common applications. This paper covers the six most basic steps required to successfully deploy a UHF RFID system. (8 pages)
