RFID Journal LIVE! 2023 is a month away, and this year’s event will feature one of the strongest speaker lineups in years (see Registration Now Open for LIVE! 2023). This track is designed to provide those new to radio frequency identification (RFID) and other Internet of Things (IoT) technologies with the foundational knowledge needed to begin understanding how RFID can be applied to solve specific business problems, so that you can choose the right option for a specific application and select the proper vendors to achieve a successful outcome. Here’s what you can discover by attending the Fundamentals of RFID: Basics and More track, presented by Ultan McCarthy, a Ph.D. lecturer at South East Technical University.

This session will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of RFID technology. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems, and the need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session will include a brief overview of the EPCglobal network, the future of ISO standards, ETSI reader regulations and the latest standardization efforts worldwide. Finally, the relationship between different standards in the area of EPC RFID, including the latest EPC Gen 2 standard, will be presented.
The instructor will discuss some of the important practical issues that must be considered when embarking on an RFID deployment. These range from the all-important cost of tags and interrogators to practical approaches to ensuring high operational reliability. Example application areas will be presented, in order to highlight how to apply these insights in the real world.
Building an RFID Business Case
Developing a strategy and business case is the first step toward understanding how RFID technology can develop high-performance results. The presenter will discuss various scenarios for RFID strategy and business-case development, and will provide an in-depth look at components and output. Emphasis will be placed on defining the value of information, and on how to evaluate various pricing strategies for RFID deployments.
