Idesco Oy, an RFID company based in Finland, and software company Norfello Oy have formed an agreement to work together for developing applications for RFID systems that could be us3ed through the Internet.
The base of this cooperation is in couple of years of common development projects, which has resulted Idesco to launch the wireless Cardea readers and a product series known as Access Touch, an embedded controller with a touch screen control panel. The Cardea readers can work both as an independent reader units or connected to centralized controller.
The independent readers do not need the communication cables anymore as they can form a network and communicate with the help of wireless radio with the central unit, through which it is made possible to for example change access control settings remotely. The radio network technology, which Idesco uses in its Cardea products, is standardized 2.4GHz 6LowPan-technology.
Norfello has established possibilities for direct communication through the internet with the Idesco readers. This makes it easier for the readers to connect to the network and makes it possible independently install the readers, reader surveillance and software updates
In the future, the cooperation between the two companies will result in introduction of new applications both in utilization of RFID technology and in different sensor technology applications.
