- Perfect Harmony
Different RFID technologies should work together to solve end users' needs.
- Sensing Future Opportunities for RFID
The future vision for RFID technology lies in achieving completely automated sensing networks that can react to external changes in real time.
- Mixing RFID in the Auto-ID Blender
Before deploying RFID, first be sure to consider all the automatic-identification and data-capture systems available to you.
- HF Protocols' Distant Dream
Although HF RFID air-interface protocols operate at a single global frequency, a number of factors hinder the ability of HF tags and readers to achieve interoperability.
- Complex Event Processing and RFID
The use of complex event processing (CEP) software can lower development time and costs for event-driven RFID and sensor-network applications.
- Intelligent Network Services Can Make RFID More Productive
By condensing raw RFID data into meaningful business events, an intelligent network service can help you implement EPCglobal RFID applications without overloading your supply chain.
- Optimizing a Wireless LAN for Location
By tuning or enhancing their existing wireless networks, hospitals and other facilities can implement an RFID-based system to locate RFID-tagged assets, thereby extending the value of their investment.
- Dispelling RFID Network Performance Concerns
You can add RFID and maintain network performance—without redesigning your infrastructure. Here's how.
- Sink or Swim?
As you dive into the depths of RFID, be sure to avoid drowning in data.
- Eliminating the Static
Electrostatic discharges can destroy RFID tags during their conversion to labels, but label makers are finding ways to short-circuit the problem.
- Security Risks With RFID
Companies need to protect their data by ensuring that the RFID technology they adopt supports their corporate security policies.
- ALE: A New Standard for Data Access
Application-Level Events, one of the first RFID software specifications EPCglobal is expected to ratify, promises great benefits.
- Seven Steps to an RFID Deployment
Do a needs-focused analysis of business processes, systems architecture and internal capabilities.
- Making RFID Work
End users need enterprise application vendors to step up and provide ways to take advantage of RFID data without adding complexity and cost to their IT infrastructure.
- Middleware Is the Key to RFID
To get the most out of their RFID systems, companies will have to deploy both new RFID middleware and conventional integration middleware. The key to success will be knowing when and how to use each.
