Stratum Global, Intermec, and other vendors are going full speed ahead in helping to establish the RFID program at Oakton Community College.
Based in Des Plaines, Ill., Oakton’s RFID program provides hands-on experience in a simulated industrial warehouse environment to prepare students for opportunities in the workplace.
Among the goods delivered: Intermec provided its IF5 RFID readers with 700 series mobile computers and portal antennas. Stratum Global, an RFID software provider, is letting students have a go at its TagNet RFID software solution suite.
The Oakton RFID lab is designed to emulate a factory portal where workers move tagged boxes or pallets through the passageway allowing inventory processing to occur automatically.
