Latest EPCglobal Networking Standard to Be Demonstrated at EPC Connection 2007

EPCglobal and leading technology providers will showcase EPCIS applications at the fourth annual EPCglobal North America conference and exhibition, to be held Oct. 2-4 in Chicago.
Sep 25, 2007RFID Journal and EPCglobal North America have announced that EPCglobal and several leading technology providers will demonstrate real-world EPC Information Service (EPCIS) applications in the exhibit hall at EPC Connection 2007. The fourth annual EPCglobal North America conference and exhibition will be held Oct. 2-4 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago.

EPCIS is an EPCglobal standard for sharing supply chain visibility information between trading partners. It provides a uniform method for businesses to capture the "what, where, when and why" of events occurring in any supply chain, and to share this information with internal business applications and external partners. Any business process concerned with the movement of goods or assets can benefit from the increased visibility EPCIS provides.

"Last year, EPCglobal demonstrated interoperability using the network standards," says Ken Traub, a consultant for EPCglobal, who set up the demonstrations. "This year, we will be showing actual real-world applications leveraging the standards, enabling companies to see how these standards can be used to improve the way they do business."

During the conference, three live demonstrations of EPCIS in action will be conducted on the exhibit floor. These demos will illustrate real-world applications of the standard, including asset tracking, electronic proof of delivery and custody tracing for electronic pedigrees.

Rush Tracking Systems, a systems integrator located in Kansas City, Mo., is assisting EPCglobal in setting up the demonstrations, which will include multiple EPCIS applications communicating with each other in real time. Exhibitors participating in the demonstration will include Reva Systems, RSI ID Technologies and Impinj.

"This is an opportunity for those eager to use EPC standards, and even those who might be skeptical of the value of this technology, to come see the standards in action," says Mark Roberti, editor and founder of RFID Journal. "These applications are real, and they can drive business value in a wide variety of industries today."
