Comparative Analysis of EPC Compliant Devices
Project Award Date: 08-16-2004
RFID mandates from major retailers and the DoD are forcing the adoption of RFID and its related technologies. The newness of the technology, the rapid changes in technology, and the aggressive time frames that manufacturers have been given have caused confusion and concern. Manufacturers also realize that they must integrate RFID internally to fully utilize its capabilities. However, they are hesitant to move too quickly because of the unknowns and the newness of the technology.
If reliable, unbiased, and independent performance reports were available, end users could avoid the costly and unneeded steps of bringing in all vendors to investigate firsthand how the hardware will perform in their environment. It is for this reason the RFID Alliance Lab will produce a series of "consumer reports" on commercially available EPC-compliant hardware. These reports will be sold to the industry and will enable end users to make more informed decisions and move quicker and with confidence as they develop their RFID strategies.
