PRECONFERENCE SEMINAR

RFID Journal University

This seminar has been our most popular preconference offering for seven years. RFID Journal University is designed to provide those new to radio frequency identification with the foundational knowledge needed to begin understanding how RFID can be applied to solve specific business problems, so that you can choose the right option for a specific application and select the proper vendors to achieve a successful outcome.

RFID Journal LIVE! preconference seminars provide in-depth information regarding 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 an All-Access, Conference + Preconference or Preconference + Exhibit-Only Pass.

RFID Basics
New to RFID? This optional session for all preconference attendees provides an introduction to the fundamentals of the technology. The differences between the various classes of tags will be explained, including active and passive systems, and the need for additional IT systems to build upon RFID in real-world applications will be highlighted. The session will also include a 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 EPC RFID, including the latest EPC Gen 2 standard, will be presented.

Speaker:
Mark Roberti, Founder and Editor, RFID Journal
Takeaways:
• A general understanding of the various types of RFID systems and their applications
• An understanding of the different components of an RFID system and how they fit together

11:30 AM

The Physics Behind RFID
Obtain a fundamental understanding of RFID hardware. This session will cover the different frequency bands used: LF (125 KHz), HF (13.56 MHz) and UHF (860 to 960 MHz and 2.45 GHz). The instructor will explore the nature of RF fields and radio propagation, including the complex areas of null spots, reflections, polarization and other issues. By explaining many buzzwords common within the RFID community, we will provide delegates with the terminology they need to understand the technology, and to work with systems integrators and other RFID vendors.

Speaker:
Peter Basl, Ph.D., Technical Manager, McMaster RFID Applications Lab

12:15 PM

Legislation and Standardization
Legislation regarding the use of RFID varies around the world and is subject to almost constant ongoing review. Standards will ensure compliance with legislation, and also guarantee interoperability between RFID systems manufactured by different technology providers. This session will offer an update on the latest developments by legislative and standardization bodies around the world.

Live Demo: RFID in the Real World
Theory is nice, but wait until you experience RFID in action and see its potential—as well as the potential challenges you might encounter while deploying the technology. Our live demonstration of a UHF RFID interrogator with a variety of products will highlight many real-world issues that arise when deploying RFID. In addition, the instructor will demonstrate how antenna polarization and the presence of metal and liquids can affect the ability to read a tag on products, as well as various approaches to alleviating this problem.

Speaker:
Peter Basl, Ph.D., Technical Manager, McMaster RFID Applications Lab

2:30 PM

Real-World Considerations
The instructor will discuss some of the important practical issues that must be considered when embarking on an RFID deployment. These range from the all-important cost of tags and interrogators to practical approaches to ensuring high operational reliability. Example application areas will be presented, in order to highlight how to apply these insights in the real world.

Speaker:
Peter Basl, Ph.D., Technical Manager, McMaster RFID Applications Lab

Break

3:30 PM

Building an RFID Business Case
Developing a strategy and business case is the first step toward understanding how RFID technology can develop high performance results. The presenter will discuss various scenarios for RFID strategy and business-case development, and provide an in-depth look at components and output. Emphasis will be placed on defining the value of information, and on how to evaluate various pricing strategies for RFID deployments.

Speaker:
Peter Basl, Ph.D., Technical Manager, McMaster RFID Applications Lab
