Making an RFID investment more generic

March 15, 2004

Pete Winer reports:

ConnecTerra announced availability of their new RFTagAware server. ConnecTerra has built on their legacy of offering adapters for managing devices at the edge of the network including RFID readers.

RFTagAware solves the problem of managing large sets of readers from multiple manufacturers and it also filters and aggregates data from readers. ConnecTerra's RFTagAware server generates Application Level Events (ALE) that can be easily consumed by enterprise applications upstream.

This middleware is such a cool idea for making generic RFID implementations: hook up any reader and the middleware will translate the data and trigger generic events in either custom or commercial enterprise software. Neat.
