2 What is RFID?  Radio Frequency Identification allows you to uniquely identify an object, using simple radio waves. The secret: RFID tags  The chip has integrated memory (that varies with the tag model)  The antennas transmit the information stored in the chip’s memory  With its integrated circuit, tags can use the energy received from external antennas to transmit their own signal with their own antennas antennas chip packaging Passive tag

3 How does it work?  There are several types of tags, but the main difference between them, is how they use energy to transmit their signal  Passive tags – these tags use the energy received from external antennas to transmit their signals: virtually eternal life-expectancy  Semi-passive tags – these tags carry a small battery with them, but they only use it to assist the signal transmission, i.e., they only use the battery when they detect the presence of an external antenna  Active tags – these tags have an always-on battery-assisted circuit, that uses battery power to constantly transmit their signals. These have much smaller life-expectancy than the other types of tags.

4 How does it work?  An RFID system is composed of three major components:  The reader – it is used to connect the antennas inside the system, as well as communicating with other systems inside your network  The antennas – usually separated from the readers (but normally receiving energy from them) they radiate energy in form of radio waves, in order to transmit and receive info, to and from the tags  The tags – obviously the key component. They can be attached to any sort of object (there are many types of tags, especially designed for some kinds of materials) and imprinted with the unique ID that matches the product, allowing its tracing through the hole system

5 RFID Architecture – Enterprise Systems  Hardware components: tag, antenna, reader and sensor/actuator  Controller: usually embebed in the reader’s firmware  Edge: provides the ability to control the reader without depending on its configuration  Middleware: the nervous core of the software system  EBE and EBE interface: business logic

7 RFID system model - Example

8 RFID Anywhere Plug&Play Ease-of-use High security level Network management functions Distributed architecture

9  How does it works? Pretty simple as you manage your PDA network you can also do the same with a sensor, barcode reader, Rfid reader, this means the Sensoring Network.  The management is HW based, this get us a privileged position with HW manufactures. We built something like “drivers”.  We simple put a message into a bottle and the bottle is delivered. BPI ¿embebed? No DB, No APP Server  Not a Middleware !!! It is an Open Solution = Framework.  Middleware; manipulates & integrates some information from one source to another.  Framework; manages information sources, manage information as is, and finally integrates with mixed targets.  RA allows you to work in a mixed mode. RFID Anywhere

11 RFID Anywhere – advantages  The RFID Anywhere platform allows you to simplify all steps regarding the implementation of an RFID project.  Allows you to add business value to the data flow between the readers and the EBE  Abstraction from hardware, standards and protocols  Advanced architecture and management functionalities  Development and integration tools  Cut costs of development and deployment of RFID solutions  Scalability to guarantee a safer future for current networks  Reduces complexity of RFID networks using profiles and groups  Integrates into existing corporate systems  Provides real-time data to decision support systems  Easy and seamless integration with existing relational database management systems

12 Sybase RFID Solution Center The Mission 14  Founded in Setember 2006  The 1st investigation center in Portugal exclusively dedicated to RFID technologies  Future: 1 HQ + 3 labs in all country (partners) Mission: Development and evangelization of RFID technologies in Portuguese & World Market

13 Highlights 14  1st developement solution center in RFID technology in Portugal  Investigation & Developement of Vertical RFID Solutions  Partnerships with institutes, universities, associations  HQ in Sybase facilities Lisbon - Carnaxide  Development of Aplicational Frameworks (1st release will be in Q4 2005) & Industry Solutions Prototipes  Strategic partnerships Symbol, Intermec/Datacomp, Alien/Creative Systems, between others

14 Core Business Module objective The Core Business Module main purpose is to deliver pre- studied business cases that will simplify the implementation of some RFID solutions.  By filtering data generated by the physical layer  Provides an even higher level of abstraction  Automatically connect to provided messaging connectors

15 Core BM Arquitecture

16 Roadmap  The black text identifies the phases of development of the platform  In red you can find a short description of the prototypes

17 Core BM - Advantages  Easy to deploy available business cases …and even easily develop additional business scenarios  Demonstrate full scale POC’s  Provide only vital information to your EBE system  Achieving faster processing speed due to less data  Some business logic embedded into each of the Core BM modules  Less complexity means better understanding  A client whose concern is, ultimately, business, will be more interested to understand a framework, which sits on top of RFID Anywhere, and deals with business itself

18 Tracking example  Generic Tracking module  Blueprint that explains portal placement for RFID system  Some concepts behind the implementation of this module are discussed

19 Tracking explained visually  The blue circles contain gateways but these only contain a single point  The red circle does aggregate two points  Of course each of those points will also be composed of one or more sources.

20 Concepts

21 Development phases of an RFID project

22 Success Case - Postal Office Spain GOAL - QoS The customer wants to know, at a primary stage, how much time takes move an object from one location to another Control concurrently up to 330 readers, 1980 antennas and the initial stage up to 4.000 tags on 16 remote locations. Discover the tags in less than 20 seconds (68 tags / second).

23 Success Case - Postal Office Spain Issues  Hardware & Physics  Metal & Water.  Number of antennas.  Number of readers.  Software  Protocol implementation.  Integration.  Management & Monitoring.  Legal  Is the frequency free?

24 Success Case - Postal Office Spain Facts  Hardware & Physics  New specs coming.  Reader Coordination.  Handheld ready.  Software  Standard Protocol implementation.  MSMQ, MQ-Series, JMS, WS …  Just configure the SNMP.  Legal  EU mandate Jan-2007 must be ready in all countries.  ?
