Barcoding, Inc. and AeroScout Industrial Partner to Deliver Hybrid RFID Solutions
Combining the Best Features of both Active and Passive RFID, a Hybrid Approach Creates a Unified Visibility Solution for Tracking Assets
By: Barcoding, Inc.
Barcoding and AeroScout’s hybrid RFID system consists of:
• Active RFID from AeroScout: AeroScout’s Wi-Fi-based, active RFID tags transmit signals to standard wireless access points via their own internal power supply. These signals are then relayed to AeroScout’s MobileView™ software applications that determine the asset’s location, condition and status. Active RFID technology is used for real-time location tracking of high-value and high-impact mobile assets.
• Passive RFID from Barcoding: Although a passive RFID system collects and transmits the same location and status information as active RFID, passive RFID tags rely on readers to pick up their signal and to supply the power necessary to respond and broadcast their data. Passive RFID is used for tracking a high volume of lower-cost items that exist within an area where chokepoint/gateway detection is sufficient.
• AeroScout MobileView™: The hybrid solution collects and aggregates the real-time data from active and passive RFID technologies. This application turns the passive and active visibility data into actionable information, delivering sophisticated mapping, rules-based alerting, role-based visualization and business intelligence (BI) reporting.
Tom O’Boyle, director of RFID, Barcoding, Inc., said, “Our customers do not have to choose one type of RFID solution over the other, or have to depend on disparate asset tracking systems with separate interfaces running into their ERP system. By combining our passive RFID with AeroScout’s active RFID expertise in a hybrid solution, we can deploy an accurate, efficient, and connected data capture system that completely meets our clients’ unique and complex needs.”
Janet Chaffin, president of AeroScout Industrial, said, “Barcoding is one of the few systems integrators in the world that can deploy a hybrid RFID solution. Now, when a customer requires a combined active and passive RFID system, we are able to refer them to Barcoding for an end-to-end solution. Customers no longer need multiple vendors for each piece of the solution. This reduces implementation time and risks, while simultaneously delivering increased value and ROI. We are very pleased to welcome Barcoding, Inc., to our partner network.”
Barcoding and AeroScout will showcase their RFID solutions in booth #3027 at Modex 2014, to be held March 17-20, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. For more information, visit http://www.modexshow.com.
