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.
