RAIN RFID is a wireless technology that connects billions of everyday items to the internet, enabling businesses and consumers to identify, locate, authenticate, and engage each item.
The RAIN RFID Alliance is a global alliance established to promote the adoption of this specific UHF RFID standard (ISO/IEC 18000-63 and GS1’s EPC “Gen2”) technology and products.
The Electronic Product Code™ (EPC) is syntax for unique identifiers assigned to physical objects, unit loads, locations, or other identifiable entity playing a role in business operations.
When unique EPCs are encoded onto individual RFID tags, RF Prisma scanners can be used to capture the unique identifiers at extremely high rates and at distances well in excess of 10 metres, without line-of-sight contact. These characteristics of RFID can be leveraged to boost supply chain visibility and increase inventory accuracy.
The ultimate resource for business people looking to understand how RFID can help your company boost supply chain efficiency, reduce inventories, limit theft, improve product availability and add convenience for consumers.
