That’s said to be the standard specified by major global retailers and other industry leaders for case- and pallet-level inventory goods tracking. The draft standard is scheduled to be ratified by EPCglobal’s technical steering committee in September.

“UHF Generation 2 RFID technology offers companies compelling opportunities to improve their business processes across entire supply chains” says Mike Wills Intermec vice president. “Participating RFID technology companies are committed to the rapid development and adoption of the types of worldwide global standards that will allow companies to securely and confidently implement UHF Generation 2 technology.”

Generation 2 technology not only allows companies to read information from RFID tags without line-of-sight it also is said to add the capability to change and update the information on each tag as it proceeds through the distribution cycle.
