Ask The ExpertsDo Any RFID Tags Operate at the Same Frequency as Bluetooth?
RFID Journal Staff asked 9 years ago
Are you familiar with any companies that create tags that would meet this criterion? I am exploring a new consumer use for radio frequency identification. In addition, I seek recent publications exploring the most up-to-date advances in the RFID field. Any help would be greatly appreciated.




Bluetooth devices operate at 2.4 to 2.8 GHz. There are a number of firms that offer RFID tags operating at 2.45 GHz, including Tagsense, WhereNet (owned by Zebra Technologies), Ekahau and AeroScout. The last two companies’ offerings employ Wi-Fi protocols. I am unaware of any tag and reader combination utilizing the Bluetooth protocol.

As far as publications that explore the most up-to-date advances in RFID go, RFID Journal covers everything about the technology. The only other resource out there is the Global RF Lab Alliance, which offers a publication featuring academic papers. I hope that helps.
