Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Radio frequency identification (RFID) criteria cover tags and storage devices, readers, wireless hubs and servers, and the middleware necessary for evaluating an RFID system deployment. RFID systems are used in different situations that require the tracking of unique items. RFID tags, in the context of enterprise resource planning and supply chain management, make items visible from manufacturing through distribution. RFID tags may be used to carry basic information such as an address, to more complex information used at different stages of an assembly line.

The Middle Kingdom - From Wired to Wireless


Confused about RFID middleware? RFID middleware has a critical role to play in cleaving together and clarifying the signals and intelligence, bidirectionally from the device layer to the business applications, or out to the communications infrastructure, to the web or satellites. This article explains it all.

Middleware for radio frequency identification (RFID) bridges the worlds of waves (radio), light beams, and sensory (light temperature and vibration), to the hardwired world of servers, routers, Internet, and software systems. The Middle Kingdom is the world between the physical world and the digital world. And to add to the definition—middleware may span from the device to the edge (the border, and slightly over) of your kingdom. Mobile devices need bidirectional communications beyond the Read More

Retail Technology Experiments at Metro AG


Last year, I had the pleasure of attending a Canadian retail conference where I was incredibly impressed by the presentation of Dr. Gerd Wolfram, the Managing Director of Metro Group Information Technology GmbH, IT service provider of the German retail giant Metro AG.

Case Study: Pruitt Communications


Pruitt Communications deploys VoIP and unified communications systems for a variety of enterprise, healthcare, and government organizations across the U.S. Central to VoIP deployment is conducting network assessments to ensure the readiness of infrastructure prior to deploying a new system. Pruitt had been outsourcing these assessments to a specialist, but after seeing Fluke Networks' OptiView XG Network Analysis Tablets in action with a partner company, Pruitt decided that Fluke's solution was what they needed to manage network assessments and improve their VoIP rollout and other communications services.

The switch allowed Pruitt to bring network assessments in house, and validate the support of a VoIP rollout. With OptiView XG's automated network and application analysis, Pruitt can also instantly isolate and remediate network issues. Read more in this case study from Fluke Networks.
