In addition, Taggen will provide consulting and technical support to systems integrators that wish to become resellers and work with these devices. The training will be provided by a specialized and previously certified technical team at Alien's own RFID Center of Excellence in the United States.

According to Prado, the adoption of RFID technology in Brazil is still lagging compared to in other countries. "The supply of equipment from Alien Technology," he states, "means that Brazil has the highest-quality technological resources and reliability for the identification and tracking of objects."

According to Alien, the strongest segments in the use of RFID throughout the world are fashion, retail, logistics, industrial controls and asset management. The penetration of technology in Industry 4.0 has grown, the company reports, with the Industrial Internet of Things identifying things relevant to industrial processes. The technology allows the implementation of the first step for a reliable connection of equipment to networks. Studies indicate that the global RFID market is expected to reach 6 billion labels this year, Alien notes, and that number has grown, on average, around 40 percent annually.

With regard to Brazil, Frost & Sullivan's projections indicate that the national IoT market should reach revenues of US$3.29 billion by 2021. This estimate refers to hardware (connectivity module and other components), software and services directly connected to IoT solutions.

The potential is promising, according to a document provided by the company, as Brazil's government has released an in-depth study on this ecosystem and has launched its National IoT Plan (2017–2022), for which prioritized verticals have already been defined: health, rural, smart cities and manufacturing. This plan should open up a lot of opportunities for companies that wish to invest in this technology, the company indicates.
