PRECONFERENCE SEMINAR

RFID for IT Professionals

Sponsored by
Omni-ID


This one-day preconference seminar is designed specifically for companies that provide information technology consultants and IT hardware, software or services. The aim of this seminar is to educate professionals in the IT sector about how they can add RFID to their current product offerings by understanding the fundamentals of EPC data standards, and how to leverage RFID data. The course will also include information on how to use RFID to track IT assets.

RFID Journal LIVE! preconference seminars provide in-depth information on specific aspects of EPC and RFID technologies. Attendees can choose to participate in one of these sessions prior to the opening of the main conference program. Preconference seminars are available through All Access, Conference + Preconference or Preconference + Exhibit-Only Pass.

RFID Basics
New to RFID? Here's your opportunity to gain a basic introduction to the fundamentals of RFID. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems. The need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session also includes a very 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 RFID and EPC, including the latest EPC generation 2 standard, will be presented.

11:30 am

Creating and Deploying RFID Solutions Through Network Management and the Use of Middleware
Network appliance-based RFID middleware can filter data from RFID readers at the point at which that information is collected. Collecting RFID data at the edge of an enterprise reduces the amount of information being transmitted over a wireless network to a central server and, eventually, to a back-end application. This means data-intensive RFID applications can be deployed to increase productivity, accuracy and quality control. In this session, learn how middleware can be utilized to facilitate RFID deployment, and to make sure RFID implementation goes smoothly.

Speaker:
Rajit Gadh, Ph.D., Professor and Director, UCLA-WINMEC
Takeaways:
• How middleware can process and filter information collected by RFID interrogators
• How to implement an incremental approach to middleware-based RFID solutions

How to Cut Costs by Deploying RFID to Track IT Assets
Cognizant, a leading global IT and business process outsourcing services provider, is successfully deploying an RFID asset-tracking system at one of its primary data centers located in Kolkata, India. Hear how the company installed readers at the Cognizant data center racks, as well as attaching tags to the servers, network gears, laptops and other assets. Gain an understanding of how this system has provided accurate tracking of data center assets with minimal cost

Speaker:
Hal Lavender, Chief Architect, Cognizant Technology Solutions
Takeaways:
• How RFID can reduce the costs and maximize process efficiency
• How to employ RFID to minimize errors and maintain up-to-date, accurate inventory data

2:30 pm

Is RFID Security a Cause for Concern?
How real is the threat of an RFID-based network attack, or the use of counterfeit RFID tags? Is it possible a tag's user data could be utilized to pass malware or viruses onto back-end systems, which could then interrupt business processes or expose sensitive business data? How likely is it that an RFID tag could be cloned, or the data manipulated? In this session, hear from two founding members of the RFID Security Alliance (RFIDSA) regarding the need for companies that implement RFID applications to focus on security and privacy. Learn the potential business risks associated with RFID networks, and how organizations can safeguard against vulnerabilities.

Speakers:
Lukas Grunwald, Security Researcher, RFID Security Alliance
Michael McCartney, Principal, QLM Consulting
Takeaways:
• How to identify potential threats and minimize risks associated with RFID solutions
• Insights into the myths surrounding RFID security

Using EPCIS Data Sharing for Full Supply Chain Visibility
EPC Information Services (EPCIS) is a set of networking and data-sharing standards that offer companies the ability to share information not just about serial numbers read from RFID tags, but also regarding the context of those reads. In this session, learn how EPCIS can be employed to help realize benefits from RFID in the supply chain for a wide range of industries, including retail, consumer packaged goods, aerospace, defense, pharmaceuticals and many others. Hear how EPCIS goes beyond just identifying and tracking assets, and turns that visibility into action by exchanging data with business partners.

Speaker:
Ken Traub, PhD., Consultant, Standards Strategy, GS1 EPCglobal US
Takeaways:
• Understanding what EPCIS data is and how it provides global supply chain visibility
• The benefits of utilizing EPCIS visibility data to improve business operations
