The El Paso County 911 district in Texas serves more than 700,000 residents. Operators working at that site process more than 45,000 emergency calls every month. To prevent its electronic equipment from being damaged due to excessive heat, the facility is employing active tags with temperature-tracking sensors. In this session, learn how the El Paso County 911 District selected an RFID-based system that tracks the temperatures in the facility's equipment room and offices, and sends an alert to staff members' BlackBerries in the event of a temperature fluctuation beyond the preset acceptable threshold.
