Smallest and Fastest Active RFID tags on the Market Now Available on MOBILEFusion™ Platform
Saturday, September 13, 2008, Vancouver, BC – GuardRFID’s President and CEO, Zahir Abji, announced the availability of the company’s Real Time Location System (RTLS) on the MOBILEFusion™ platform from AppLocation Systems. MOBILEFusion enables companies to link their RFID item tracking to wide area GPS locating and location-based mobility services on a single platform for integrated supply chain and intelligent network applications.
GuardRFID CEO, Zahir Abji said, “Our active RFID technology was designed to create solutions for the protection, identification, tracking and location of assets in almost any type of environment and has allowed us to create the “smallest and lowest cost active RFID tags available in the market. Our products combined with AppLocation Systems’ leading MOBILEFusion platform takes tracking to the next level. Their expertise with mobility and specialized knowledge in location enabled networks augments our product offering to a variety of industry verticals.”
AppLocation President Gary Hartwig responded, “GuardRFID’s tamper proof, active RFID tag enables warehousing and yard applications and reduces data collisions due to its high data rate.” He went on to say that GuardRFID’s RTLS product outperforms similar Active RFID systems with reliable locating capabilities, and requires minimal deployment and maintenance efforts. “The high speed tag system supports a density of thousands of tags within a coverage area, and allows hundreds of tags to be simultaneously and rapidly acquired when crossing through a choke point such as dock doors. Integrating GuardRFID’s system with the MOBILEFusion™ platform took less than two days due to their well designed Argus Middleware engine that allows logical links.”
Abji concludes, “The convergence of RFID for indoor applications, GPS for wide area tracking and A-GPS enabled handsets for mobility and location-based services requires a next generation platform such as the one we have developed. Integrating superior wireless location technology from GuardRFID with MOBILEFusion allows businesses to combine active, passive or any locating technology across departments and remote locations to enable a future proofed system with cradle to grave supply chain visibility.”
