Smart reader offers embedded software
Intermec Technologies Corp. has embedded IBM's WebSphere RFID Device Infrastructure (WRDI) into its IF5 RFID reader, creating an "intelligent" RFID reader that automates the process of routing and managing incoming data from RFID tags, even from remote locations.
The new WRDI capabilities give IF5 readers edge-server capabilities including the ability to perform on-board decision-making reducing network traffic by filtering incoming data from external RFID tags and sending only the most pertinent information upstream to a company's application server. WRDI also provides the readers with a platform that can easily integrate and reconcile RFID information with data used in other parts of the business.
