In this session, gain an introduction on RFID/IoT technologies. RFID is not just about tags and readers. It’s an enabler of visibility, as a connecting thread in the information flow—from object identification and data capture to data communication, data hosting, information processing and, ultimately, automated transactions. Indeed, during the last decade, the portfolio of RFID technologies has evolved to a point at which it’s now difficult to fully understand the multiple options on the market and how they integrate with existing infrastructure. This session will help you position RFID technologies in your information systems infrastructure, understand what the options on the market are and how they compete with or complement other IoT technologies, and recognize which ones may be the most appropriate for your project.
