Introduction to RFID

What is RFID?

Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID, is a technology that allows automatic identification and tracking of items and business events. Through the use of micro chips and wireless communication devices, RFID software and networks can find, read, identify, communicate and assimilate item information. It can be applied within a facility, across an enterprise, or throughout a global supply chain.

The Impact of RFID

RFID is already having significant impact on the business landscape. Mandates by large firms and governments are moving trading partners to join global implementations. Beyond compliance, organizations also need to discover what will be the opportunities for their own benefit.

A Critical Need for Education and New Skills

To meet these challenges, institutions across all industries must acquire the education, and develop the skills, to undertake their own RFID programs. However, the rapidly growing interest in this technology has produced a shortage of the knowledge and skills needed for successful projects.
