  • 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)
  • The Recurring Costs of Passive RFID: Hidden Costs that Hurt Your Business and Your Budget
    Published April 2015
    Passive RFID solutions may appear less expensive than active RFID if only infrastructure costs are compared. But RF Code explains why that is only a small part of the total cost of ownership of an asset-management solution. When the total lifespan of a managed asset is taken into account, it becomes clear that active RFID is the more affordable solution and offers significant benefits that passive RFID cannot. (4 pages)
  • Performance Analysis of an RFID Prototype System to Control Personnel Access
    Published February 2015
    Yaneth Patricia López Mutis, Lucero Marisol Manquillo Lagos and Víctor Fabián Miramá Pérez present their analysis of a prototype UHF RFID system for controlling personnel access in the Mayor's Office of Popayán, Colombia. (6 pages)
  • Kurt Salmon RFID in Retail Study
    Published January 2015
    In 2014, Kurt Salmon initiated a U.S. study to examine the current state of RFID adoption across the soft lines industry, surveying 50 U.S. soft lines retailers meeting a minimum revenue threshold of $500 million in the basics, fashion or accessories merchandise categories. The survey explored retailers' and brands' current perspective on RFID and their usage intent for the technology in the future. (8 pages)
