Top 10: Best Practices for Deploying RFID in Harsh Environments
Deploying an RFID solution in harsh environments requires specific knowledge and considerations that can only be gained through extensive experience. This presentation offers the opportunity to hear directly from the experts who have deployed millions of tags for some of the largest energy and industrial manufacturing companies in the world. From the Middle East to the North Sea, Omni-ID has implemented solutions across diverse environments—each with its own set of challenges. Omni-ID's Ed Nabrotzky will share the learnings gleaned from these implementations. From architecting a solution for asset tracking to MRO or meeting regulatory requirements, hear the ten best practices that every end user and solution provider should consider when implementing solutions in harsh conditions.
Speaker: Ed Nabrotzky, Chief Solutions Officer, Omni-ID

Beyond Cool: RFID Technology Disentangles Cryopreservation Storage and Management
Cryopreservation organizations are facing many challenges in the way they store, track, handle and manage bio-materials. As storage facilities increase, the pressure escalates to implement efficient handling processes, secure access and tighter inventory controls—including complying with government mandates. During this presentation, HID Global will present the most advanced RFID solution designed to survive harsh cold and liquid nitrogen conditions. In addition, learn how to untangle the manual mess to manage materials, and how organizations can get a grip on accurate inventory, access samples quickly and reduce human error.
Speaker: Richard Aufreiter, Director of Product Management, HID Global

Tracking Radioactive Sources In-Transit
Radioactive sources are used in the oil and gas industry to characterize wells providing critical data to exploit geological formations in pursuit of oil caches. These mobile radioactive sources are of sufficient curie quantities to be categorized as attractive sources for terrorist organizations. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a system that monitors, records and reports the status of mobile radioactive sources using sensor-based, active RFID technology to track the source shields, calibration sources and verifiers. Learn how real-time status is communicated from the Master Control Unit through a telematics device (long-range communications) to the cloud, providing situational awareness to the base of operations center. In the event of an upset condition (lost or stolen source), an alarm is sent to the base of operation center for immediate notification of key personnel to the field condition.
Speakers: Brion J. Burghard, Senior Research Scientist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory; Kurt Silvers, Program Manager, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Automating Processes in Harsh Environments Via RFID: Case Studies and ROI Metrics
Harsh-environment use cases span multiple industries, including industrial equipment, oil and gas, mining, chemicals and life sciences. RFID is being used to automate processes in research facilities, exploration, manufacturing and aftermarket services. This session will discuss real-world examples of RFID process automation in harsh environments, from planning considerations and ROI metrics to systems integration and enterprise deployment. In addition, a deployment guide containing process flows and systems-integration examples will be provided. Download the RFID in Harsh Environments Deployment Guide

RFID for Warehouse and Inventory Management 2017
In this virtual event, learn how to benefit from deploying radio frequency identification within your warehouse by managing your inventory and coordinating your supply chain. Hear real-world case studies explaining the tangible business benefits of how RFID can help your organization improve visibility regarding product movements and related transactions, as well as increase efficiencies, lower labor costs, optimize inventory levels, track assets and differentiate your logistic service, in order to gain a competitive advantage.
RFID in the Food Industry 2017
This virtual event is designed to educate growers, distributors and producers of food and food products, as well as systems integrators and other implementers, regarding the benefits of using RFID to track the location of food and monitor its temperature as it moves through the supply chain. The seminar will explain the current state of RFID, and reveal how your organization can deploy the technology to achieve such benefits today.
RFID in Retail and Apparel Virtual Event 2017
Retail and apparel companies have been among the early adopters of RFID technologies, both internally and within their shared supply chains. Today RFID's value has evolved far beyond inventory visibility to building the foundation for responsive retailing. During this virtual event, hear how retailers worldwide are using RFID and Internet of Things technologies to become more agile and responsive in an increasingly competitive market.
Internet of Things 2017
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a broad term being used to cover technologies that give network connectivity to everyday objects, from wearable computers to common products. What's behind all the excitement about the Internet of Things? How will companies benefit from IoT technologies? What will be the impact on consumers? What strategies should companies use to take advantage of IoT technologies, and which technologies will dominate the IoT? This virtual event will feature case studies from early adopters. Learn from industry experts, market leaders and analysts who will share their insights about overcoming technical, user and governmental challenges, and how to create effective business models using the power of the Internet of Things.
