  • Reusable assets: some problems at the beginning, but now over 90% Portal dockdoors: variations depending on suppliers, packaging, products. Some suppliers, e.g. Nestle, at 100%
  • The EPC Business Action Group (BAG) User Requirements Subcommittee documented the Gen 2 user requirements for an air interface. Those requirements largely identify capabilities not found in Gen 1. User requirements fall into six broad categories Within each of the 6 categories are core capabilities identified by the BAG Subcommittee. Speed , users demand the ability to read many tags in the field and handle tags that are just on the edge of the read zone; - demand the ability to quickly and reliably write to a tag; - demand the ability to select tags based on a data filter (for example, read only pallet tags and tell the other tags to stay quiet). Efficiency , users demand the ability to install many (dozens) of readers in close proximity without interfering with one another and reducing system performance; - they demand products can be legally used around the world; - they demand that RFID systems do not interfere with other radio systems. Reliability , users demand assurance that data to a tag is verified; - demand that transmission errors are efficiently corrected automatically; - demand the ability to read and write to tags over a wide operating temperature; - they demand the elimination of non-existent “ghost” tags. Range , users demand read range up to 5 meters. Security , users demand the ability to prevent tag data from being changed; - demand the ability to permanently kill a tag for privacy concerns; - demand a design that makes it difficult for other systems to receive private data; - demand the ability to prevent a tag from responding without the correct password. Cost , the users demand techniques like synchronized timing to reduce tag cost. Capabilities with the Intellitag Gen 2 logo are dependent on Intermec intellectual property In fact, all of the six categories require Intermec IP. Only Intermec’s Intellitag Gen 2 or licensees of Intermec’s IP can fully meet the user requirements.
