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 project. The importance of a site survey can influence the success or failure of an RFID project.

RFID Case Study: Gillette and Provia Part Two: Challenges and Lessons Learned


Compliance with the market RFID mandate has unfortunately preceded the achievements of applied physics and computer science. One of the main obstacles is the lack of integration, since there is a dearth of software tools from enterprise application integration vendors to get data from RFID tags and readers into existing business systems, meaning that companies are often forced to do expensive custom integration work.

The above examples show only a part of the required verifications and additional business logic that RFID deployment may demand. While an additional software layer might help with verifying and reconciling inconsistencies and overflowing or missing data, it is apparent that RFID imposes quite a more complex data manipulation. This is Part Two of a two-part Case Study. Part One provided Background and Set the Goals. Auxiliary Read More

HP's Four-CPU Wintel-Based Rack Servers: Focusing on Reliability and Expandability


Hewlett-Packard's four-CPU rackmount products, the NetServer LH4r and LXr 8000, are aimed at customers who want reliable, expandable server installations.
