GuardRFID’s industry leading active RFID platform that enables solutions for real-time tracking, location and security are now available for commercial sale across Europe
Vancouver, BC, Friday, November 21, 2014 – Guard RFID Solutions Inc. announced today that it has received approval for the CE Mark for commercial sale of Readers, Tags and other components of its AllGuard Active RFID platform, used to create leading-edge real-time tracking, location and security solutions for healthcare, enterprise and industrial markets. GuardRFID’s systems have already been deployed in over a hundred facilities in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Saudi Arabia since GuardRFID’s inception in 2007.
The diverse range of solutions include TotGuard Infant Security, AllGuard Wandering Patient Protection, SafeGuard Staff Duress and AllGuard Asset Tracking, all specifically developed for healthcare facilities, as well as AllGuard Personnel Safety and Accountability, AllGuard Yard Management and AllGuard Asset Tracking and Security for deployment in industrial and enterprise environments. GuardRFID, in collaboration with its European partners, is already in the planning stages for deployment of systems required in Europe and expects to begin implementation of these over the coming months.
“We have had a great deal of interest in our platform and products from European companies over the years,” stated Zahir Abji, President and CEO of GuardRFID. “We wanted to ensure that we were in a position to support that market well before beginning to offer our platform and solutions. Reliable solutions for asset tracking and patient security in healthcare facilities, and personnel accountability and mustering applications, particularly in the Oil & Gas market, appear to be in high demand.”
“Our 433MHz based AllGuard Platform is ideal for these environments, due to the nature of the frequency band allowing attributes such as long range, low power and therefore very small tags, and the ability to work in the presence of densely populated metal structures,” add Dalibor Pokrajac, Executive Vice President of GuardRFID. “Our technology has been adopted within the IEEE 802.11.4f Active RFID standard as well as the ISO 18000-7 standard, and therefore we are standards ready and the first standards compliant products are already available for commercial deployment. This makes our platform very compelling to end users looking for standards based solutions that offer longevity and multiple sources.”
