The current system might still be excellent but the circumstances are constantly changing, so the requirements for the system are changing too. The increasing need for more efficient performance requires a renewable system as the existing one is designed for serving current processes. We cannot therefore say that there would be something wrong with the current system - only the requirements for the system have changed. Therefore it is advisable to search for another business intelligence option, such as RFID. But, please bear in mind that if your boss has personally selected the current system, stick in pure numbers and figures instead of pointing at the problems.

RFID is an exciting technology that has greatly improved visibility in supply chains, tool tracking, and access control applications among others. Until recently however, RFID hasn’t typically been included in many consumer facing applications. Companies either deemed the technology too expensive, or they assumed the consumer wasn’t ready to learn another emerging technology. The tides are changing. As costs for RFID and NFC tags continue to decrease, and phone manufacturers incorporate NFC capabilities into their products, RFID is being embraced in advertising campaigns, products, and events across the world. In this list, you’ll see some of the new and creative examples of RFID in marketing. Let these ideas spark your own RFID & NFC advertising campaigns!

NFC or Near-Field Communications is a rapidly growing wireless, short-range technology. Approved as an ISO standard in 2003, NFC is a form of RFID technology that has a read range of up to a few centimeters. The ISO standards approved by the International Organization of Standardization (ISO 14443 and ISO 18000-3) exist on the HF or High-Frequency band on the Radio Frequency Spectrum.

As the popularity of smart phones has reached the peak in China, more and more functions have been added to it. Smart phones have become an integral part of us. There are many functions on smartphones that are not yet fully popularized, but the future is likely to become a trend. For example, fingerprint recognition has been loaded by a large number of mobile phones. But compared to camera sensors, there are still many products that do not have. In addition, there is a technology that is earlier than fingerprint recognition on mobile phones. That is NFC.

Facing challenges when installing a new system or procedure is expected, but it helps to consider potential problems before installation. Large and small companies, as well as individuals, thinking about installing an RFID system have numerous things to consider before making a purchase. If the potential user prepares thoroughly and completes enough due diligence up front, it should reduce unplanned issues mid and post-installation. Unfortunately, even the most prepared organization might run into a few issues during installation due to the unpredictable nature of RFID when implemented in a new environment.

Protocols are a certain set of rules that govern the exchange of data through a communication connection. Most widely used protocols define small data exchanges that occur millions of times a day like the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) or File Transfer Protocol (FTP). It is fair to say that most people use protocols on a daily basis. Because RFID is built on communication exchange, there are multiple protocols specific to RFID systems. Some higher-level, complex protocols are constructed of component protocols; a common example of that is the EPC Gen2 protocol.

Deploying an RFID application without consideration of the environment can potentially lead to thousands of dollars spent with less than stellar read rates. If positive results cannot be provided within the required timeframe, the project may be abandoned and the organization deprived of potential time and cost savings.
