TAGSYS today announced a new breed of ‘e-connectware,’ its software suite designed to manage global RFID networks – while keeping the data integrity of item-level tagging.
“E-connectware lets customers or their service provider manage RFID infrastructure just like voice and data networks,” said Elie Simon, CEO of TAGSYS, adding that the new software is ideal for international companies who don’t want to worry about juggling a bunch of different systems internationally.
RFID Grid Management: TAGSYS Announces e-connectware, The Platform For RFID Grid Management
Network-Layer Solution Enables RFID Quality of Service
TAGSYS, the global leader in item-level RFID infrastructure, announced ‘e-connectware,’ a software suite designed to manage global RFID networks. The e-connectware platform is a comprehensive set of management and administrative tools that deliver the highest quality of service levels to ensure data accuracy and data integrity in item-level tagging.
“e-connectware lets customers or their service provider manage RFID infrastructure just like voice and data networks,” said Elie Simon, CEO of TAGSYS. “With e-connectware we can offer customers level-of-service agreements on performance, uptime and scalability for RFID deployments that meet the most demanding requirements.”
The software broadens TAGSYS’ product portfolio and reinforces the company’s unique position as a complete RFID systems provider from tags to readers to software and services in both HF and UHF. e-connectware dramatically accelerates RFID deployments by enabling centralized deployment, management and administration of RFID readers and application systems, pro-active monitoring of those systems, on-the-fly performance tuning, and even fail-over and recovery. e-connectware’s distributed network architecture enables customers to scale up to 10,000 nodes without performance penalties or the addition of back-end compute resources.
e-connectware is comprised of three different products that provide increasing levels of capability and scale to allow customers the flexibility to choose the product that best fits their needs. The three e-connectware products are:
Essentials – provides intelligent management and monitoring of TAGSYS reader infrastructure at a local level with a single user interface.
Enterprise – provides remote management, administration, and control of TAGSYS reader infrastructure on a networked, multi-site basis with increasing levels of performance required.
Global – provides remote management, administration and control of heterogeneous reader infrastructure on a networked, global level with mission critical quality of service requirements.
“Enabling quality of service and performance level agreements is key to accelerating pilot activity,” said Eric Newmark, senior research analyst for Health Industry Insights. “Frequency independent platforms will ultimately pave the way for widespread RFID adoption in the life sciences.”
“e-connectware has proven to be an important selling point for our customers,” said Frederic Hauser, managing director of Ident, a TAGSYS certified partner. “Especially as it pertains to protecting our clients’ assets, such as France’s Bibliothèque du Sénat (the Library of the French Senate), TAGSYS provides the utmost in data integrity and system reliability.”
e-connectware pricing is based on a site license with unlimited reader support. The Essentials edition is available immediately, with the Enterprise and Global editions available starting the second half of 2007.
