14:45  IT/Infrastructure:
RFID Data-Sharing Standards

The key to benefiting from RFID data is the ability to share information in standardized formats. This session brings attendees up to date with progress being made by EPCglobal subgroups in developing data sharing standards for specific industries, including retail/CPG, defense/aerospace, health care/life sciences and distribution/logistics.
 Henri Barthel, Technical Director, EPCglobal
Insights into where data sharing standards are
Understanding the benefits of data format standards
15:35 IT/Infrastructure:
RFID Network Infrastructure—The Key to Scale and Performance
Many implementers are contemplating rollouts that encompass more sites, more readers and more applications than their simple pilots were built to handle. Additionally, IT departments are increasingly focused on the manageability, security and reliability of cost effective enterprise-scale solutions. In this session learn how global companies are addressing these requirements by making RFID Network Infrastructure a key component of their RFID deployments.
 Ashley Stephenson, Chairman and Co-Founder, Reva Systems
Understanding the potential benefits of an RFID network infrastructure
Best practices for deploying an RFID network
16:25  IT/Infrastructure:
Are Changes in ETSI Rules Needed?

Given the performance results outlined in the previous session, are new ETSI regulations needed? In this session, those imposing the regulations, vendors making equipment under the regulations and companies using the equipment discuss the best way to move forward to enable UHF systems to work well in Europe.
 Josef Preishuber-Pflüegl, Co-Chair, Hardware Action Group
     Ad Hoc Advisory Committee, Member ETSI TG34, CTO,
