Embedded RFID Workshop

Sponsored By:
Radio frequency identification technologies are poised to have a huge impact on the high-technology sector. Embedded electronics developed by Intel and its RFID partner, Impinj, will enable a host of new applications. Plus, RFID can be used to track printed circuit boards (PCBs) through the manufacturing process, and then enable the tracking of products to stores and on to end users. In this workshop, learn how embedding RFID in products opens doors to innovative applications across a wide range of devices.

IT Asset Tracking Workshop
Sponsored By:
RFID Global Solutions
Please note that attendance for this preconference is restricted to end users only.

Tracking IT assets is a challenge for all companies, even those that don't run their own data centers. Radio frequency identification technology can help businesses better manage IT assets, by making it easier to capture data regarding the locations and movements of servers, storage devices, laptops and peripherals. Learn how RFID can reduce capital expenditures on IT assets and reduce the amount of time, labor and money required to perform inventory counts and comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.

Managing Medical Devices With RFID
Sponsored By:
Please note that attendance for this preconference is restricted to end users only.

Tracking medical devices is not like tracking apparel with RFID. While both products are being managed using serialized data, medical devices are more challenging to tag. In this workshop, the presenters will explain how to evaluate tags for tracking medical devices, as well as key issues that need to be considered when choosing software and integrating RFID data with existing back-end systems. In addition, they will share best practices and case studies.

Please note that attendance for this preconference is restricted to end users only.
