- For Small to Midsize Container Companies, RFID Makes Sense
Based on a study involving a real-life logistics provider, the average payback period for an EPC Gen 2 RFID implementation is between 12 and 24 months.
- EPCIS Implementers Need to Clean Up Their Data
One hundred percent of first-time exchanges of EPCIS events between companies contained errors. If not corrected, such mistakes could jeopardize the promise of tracking and tracing.
- How RFID Can Help Manufacturers Thrive in Recessionary Times
With every economic crisis comes opportunity. A well-scrutinized RFID project has the potential to yield a strong return on investment.
- Beyond the Basics
Innovative RFID applications can deliver more benefits and a faster ROI.
- Lessons From Air Safety
RFID could be the food supply chain's equivalent of the flight data recorder.
- A Broader Definition of RFID
BLE promises to blur the line between Bluetooth and radio frequency identification.
- How to Realize the Full Potential of EPCIS
EPC Information Service applications are powerful tools for maximizing the value of an EPC RFID deployment, and the EPCIS Validation Portal service can help expedite the deployment and implementation of EPCIS.
- Inference ID
When it comes to supply chain visibility, a little RFID can go a long way.
- Increasing Read Ranges
An EPC-compliant Gen 2 active tag is on the horizon.
- Protecting EPC Tags
In the short term, companies could use a transponder ID written to every microchip to ensure the authenticity of an EPC tag.
- Dutch RFID Interference Study Is a Worst-Case Test
A recent study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association is not in line with the reality of most current hospital RFID deployments.
- Business-Friendly Tools
An enhanced track-and-trace system will allow organizations to make sense of supply-chain and life-cycle information.
- How to Deploy a Nine-Party EPCIS Network Within Two Months
A recent demonstration showed just how easy it is to use the Electronic Product Code Information Services standard to solve real supply chain business problems.
- Opening Up the Network
Open-source simulation software will enable the RFID community to help develop and learn to use the Internet of Things.
- Tagging Smallish Objects
By integrating an RFID antenna in the silicon chip, we can create tiny tags.
