RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part One: RFID Technology
For retailers and the other vertical industries, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags present enormous opportunities to improve supply chain operations

rf tags  their existing investments in RF and barcode infrastructure. To facilitate this dual mode of operation, RedPrairie has integrated RFID functionality with traditional processing so that distribution operations are independent of the data capture source, which should enable customers to take early advantage of RFID benefits, such as increased inventory visibility and accuracy, reduced labor costs and faster cycle times, without disrupting existing operations. Finally, as RFID technology matures, it will Read More

A How-to Guide for a Radio Frequency Identification Site Survey
As organizations prepare for a radio frequency identification (RFID) implementation, they often don't understand the preliminary work necessary to begin the

rf tags  timeline. Interference from other RF devices and forms of electricity can affect RFID accuracy. Wavelengths may cancel each other out where a particular frequency is already being used. A site survey answers many questions that may arise on the IT side of an RFID implementation. It also provides a road map for reader placement, backscatter, and power requirements for new network equipment, both electrically and network architecture–wise. Interference from other radio equipment (AEN) and RF coverage of Read More
