International RFID Technology Leaders NXP Semiconductors, MTI, austriamicrosystems, and RF-iT Partner to Demonstrate PlugNPlay Solution, A Major Step Towards the Internet of Things

Connecting everyday items to the internet through embedding short-range mobile transceivers enables a new medium of communication between people and objects and between objects themselves. Novel EPCglobal C1G2 RFID products, including USB Dongle UHF RFID reader and Gen2 Tag with advanced capabilities, are presented allowing large scale integration of ubiquitous computing in a way triggering innovative ideas of high value applications for the everyday life. Easy to install, one-click downloadable software makes the technology utilizable for experts and novices alike in a simple and fast way to access the Internet of Things.

MTI’s game changing RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) based on austriamicrosystems AS3992 high-performance, completely-integrated silicon solution provides a global, affordable, mobile and enabling EPCglobal C1G2 integrated UHF reader complete with embedded antenna. RF-iT Solution’s innovative detego EXPRESS provides a powerful software module catalogue. A variety of predefined interfaces to backend ERP or database systems can be downloaded easily. The internet link module directly feeds product code information into internet search engines. NXP’s newly announced UCODE G2iL+ tag silicon provides advanced features for EPCglobal C1G2 tags, including the industry’s first tag level I/O signaling interfaces, enabling low cost passive UHF RFID to be used in applications never before possible.

Come see our Internet of Things – from Vision to Reality demonstration at MTI’s booth (#355) during RFID Journal Live! 2010 in Orlando, Florida on April 14-16, 2010 and witness UHF passive RFID in a different, new and exciting way:

Smart Interfacing
Plug MTI’s RFID USB Dongle (RU-888-100) with austriamicrosystems inside to a USB port of your PC, download the detego EXPRESS software from RF-iT’s homepage and feed EPC data to any IT-Backend system of your choice. Through a series of interfaces defined data (ID, timestamp, location) is provided to seamlessly integrate into your IT backend systems like SAP, Navision, Sage and numerous others.

Smart Advertising
Download the Internet link option from RF-iT’s home-page and optionally feed EPC data to search engines like Google. Find out valuable information about products and services by just presenting a tagged item to MTI’s RFID USB Dongle reader powered by austriamicrosystems with RF-iT’s software application seamlessly connecting EPC data to the world wide web.

Smart Theft Protection
The recently announced NXP Semiconductors UCODE G2iL+ presents many exciting new features never before available from EPCglobal C1G2 compliant UHF tag silicon. One application that the partners have leveraged from the UCODE G2iL+ and demonstrate is the activation and deactivation of electronic devices over the RFID link. By integrating NXP’s tiny G2iL+ silicon into a tag, and then embedding this within an object or item, or even a printed circuit board (PCB) of a device such as a mobile phone, MP3 player or printer, the product can be stored on the sales floor in a deactivated state minimizing its value to potential shoplifters. Activation and downloading of relevant software or firmware of the device can be done at home after proper registration on the vendor’s homepage, or alternatively at the POS, whichever is most convenient.

While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...

Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
