Barcoding, Inc. & AeroScout Partner to Create Hybrid RFID Solution

Barcoding, Inc. recently partnered with AeroScout Industrial in order to deliver a hybrid RFID solution that combines both passive and active RFID, creating a unified visibility solution for asset tracking.

The system uses active RFID from AeroScout’s hybrid RFID system, a Wi-Fi based system that uses active RFID tags to transmit signals to standard wireless access points via their own internal power supply. From there, the signals are relayed to AeroScout’s MobileView software application, which determines the asset’s location, condition and status.

Barcoding brings its passive RFID solution to the table, which collects and transmits the same location and status information as active RFID, but relies on readers to pick up their signal and supply power to respond and broadcast data.

Tom O’Boyle, director of RFID, Barcoding, Inc., said, “Our customers do not have to choose one type of RFID solution over the other, or have to depend on disparate asset tracking systems with separate interfaces running into their ERP system. By combining our passive RFID with AeroScout’s active RFID expertise in a hybrid solution, we can deploy an accurate, efficient, and connected data capture system that completely meets our clients’ unique and complex needs.”

Janet Chaffin, president of AeroScout Industrial, said, “Barcoding is one of the few systems integrators in the world that can deploy a hybrid RFID solution. Now, when a customer requires a combined active and passive RFID system, we are able to refer them to Barcoding for an end-to-end solution. Customers no longer need multiple vendors for each piece of the solution. This reduces implementation time and risks, while simultaneously delivering increased value and ROI. We are very pleased to welcome Barcoding, Inc., to our partner network.”

Barcoding and AeroScout will showcase their RFID solutions in booth #3027 at Modex 2014, March 17-20, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
