What does RFID stand for and what does it do? RRS feed

  • Question

  • RFID seems to be related to intelligent devices, but I am not clear on what that means or what BizTalk has to do with it. Anyone have an answer or helpful link?

  • Hi

    Well, it stands for "Radio Frequency ID". The basic idea is, that you add tags (small radio transmitters) to stuff like cargo, suitcases, trucks and what not, and using RFID technology (receivers that pick up the signal from the radio transmitters) you can track the whereabouts of your items.

    BizTalk has support for this, meaning that it has support for some of the standards used by these technologies to exchange messages.

  • RFID stands for Radio Frequency Identification and is used in so many ways in our modern world. As others have mentioned in this thread it can be used in cargo, suitcases etc. but also provides transport ticketing and event ticketing solutions, university campus security and attendance monitoring for students.

    A subset of RFID is Near Field Communications (NFC) which is the platform that allows for the mobile wallet. Basically your mobile (cell) phone can be connected to your bank account meaning that you can make payments (usually small payments) simply by passing your mobile phone close to a reader.

    Whilst the set up of RFID solutions for a business can be large, the savings may also be substantial. An example might be a music festival where the attendee buys their ticket online and 'charges' their 'ticket' with an amount of credit. Their ticket is delivered as an RFID -chipped' wristband. At the turstile entering the festival the attendee passes their wristband close to a reader and, recognising the chip, the reader allows the attendee through not only preventing fraudulent ticketing but also reducing the manning costs of the turnstile. The RFID enabled wristband may also be used in the same way at the concession stands allowing attendees to purchase drinks, programmes, food etc. Once again this reduces queues thereby incresing throughput without the need for extra staffing costs.
