RFID - Myth versus Reality
The hype around the adoption of RFID as the 'hot new technology' continues. The reality is that RFID, despite the fact that this is a relatively mature

Those engaged in Gen 2 pilots are restricting these activities to product or partner specific areas, while still others are adopting a wait and see' attitude—in anticipation of universal standards and ubiquitous reader networks. A core compelling argument, irrespective of the mandates,' relates to the value of the granularity of data provided by RFID. A specific example is pharmaceutical supply chains (see Cold Chain Read More...

Part Eight will note challenges and make user recommendations. Parts One through Four will be published between August 11 and 14. Part Five to Eight will be published August 18 to 21. Read More...
RFID--A New Technology Set to Explode? Part Two: Early Adopters, Challenges, and User Recommendations
Radio frequency identification or RFID has a potential of becoming a new technology inflection point. It can be a missing piece in the long-lasting puzzle of

Nowadays, the market is still in a chicken-and-egg conundrum—until more companies commit to RFID, the cost of tags and other infrastructure will remain prohibitively high for mass deployment. A few years ago, typical smart-label tags were between $1- $2 (USD) each, while today we may be looking at volumes in millions, costing 30 40 cents (USD). This is further projected into billions of tags on individual items in the future, causing the cost to Read More...
