Hauppauge, NY (PRWEB) September 27, 2007
RFID Journal, the world's leading media and events company covering radio frequency identification (RFID), and EPCglobal North America, a not-for-profit, vendor-neutral, user-driven organization supporting the adoption of Electronic Product Code (EPC) technology, have announced that EPCgobal and leading technology providers will demonstrate real-world EPC Information Service (EPCIS) applications in the exhibit hall at EPC Connection 2007--the fourth annual EPCglobal North America conference and exhibition--which will be held October 2-4 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago.
EPCIS is an EPCglobal standard for sharing supply chain visibility information between trading partners. It provides a standard method for businesses to capture the "what, where, when and why" of events occurring in any supply chain, and to share this information with internal business applications and external partners. Any business process concerned with the movement of goods or assets can benefit from the increased visibility EPCIS provides.
"Last year, EPCglobal demonstrated interoperability using the network standards," says Ken Traub, a consultant for EPCglobal who set up the demonstrations. "This year, we will be showing actual real-world applications leveraging the standards, enabling companies to see how these standards can be used to improve the way they do business."
During EPC Connection 2007, three live demonstrations of EPCIS in action will be shown on the exhibit floor. These demos will illustrate real-world applications of the standard, including asset tracking, electronic proof of delivery and custody tracing for electronic pedigrees.
Rush Tracking Systems, a leading systems integrator, is assisting EPCglobal in setting up the demonstrations, which will include separate EPCIS applications communicating with each other in real time. Exhibitors participating in the demonstration will include Reva Systems, RSI ID Technologies and Impinj.
"This is an opportunity for those eager to use EPC standards, and even those who might be skeptical of the value of this technology, to come see the standards in action," said Mark Roberti, editor of RFID Journal. "These applications are real, and they can drive business value in a wide variety of industries today."
