What Does RFID Mean ..
To You

?


RFID is not just a project .. Or a compliance
problem


It is a fundamental new technology that will be
increasingly important in many aspects of your
business in coming years


You need integrated solutions .. And a partner
..who understands this, and is building
architectures that will handle your needs today ..
Tomorrow .. And a decade hence


Why?

Where Are The Standards?

UHF Generation 2 standard has almost
achieved technical consensus


IP
issues must still be resolved

Gen 1


Class 0 or Class 1

13

Radio Regulations around the world


Radio Regulations are most favorable for
EPC in the U.S.


Regulatory changes needed to

support EPC in Europe (ETSI 302.208), will
be finalized this year, supporting un

licensed operation for products, next year


Japan MPHPT conducting tests to open a
UHF band by March 2005


China standards and regulations are still a
wildcard

Packaged Solutions = Practical Deployments


Even when technology
works it must be practical
and cost
-
effective to deploy


RFID must be integrated
with other key technologies
that are key in the
distribution, retail, and
transportation,
environments


RFID must scale .. And
must be survivable
