After a false start more than a decade ago, RFID’s second generation technology has come full circle. RFID solutions are currently being integrated into a variety of industries including healthcare, retail, commercial and automotive, to name a few.

Open Wave RFID is Coast 2 Coast’s Chattanooga, Tennessee-based RFID technology company with over 10 years of experience in Radio Frequency Identification practices. They develop a wave of new technology applications and innovations with RFID systems that were not possible in the past.

Based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Open Wave develops RFID solutions for large local companies like Mckee Foods, Tennessee Valley Authority, Oakridge National Laboratory, and Chattanooga Tent Company. With their depth of experience, Coast 2 Coast now applies Open Wave's technologies to provide improved business solutions for their clients. Open Wave provides a variation of RFID operations that translate into virtually any tracking need, and C2C uses these solutions to benefit its customers nationally.

One of their more exciting applications of technology is Open Wave's work with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, where it is being used to inventory chemicals stored in supply cabinets. Prior to the introduction of RFID, inventory was completed by manually removing each bottle from the cabinet and scanning the barcode for each individual item. Now, each container is tagged with a passive RFID tag and inventory is simply gathered by waving the reader in front of each shelf, without the risk of spills or breakage. The application of RFID also reduces inventory time by over 95 percent.

Whether RFID is needed for retail, institutional, government or healthcare facilities, Coast 2 Coast integrates its services with the appropriate technology to create the best solution. By pairing facility models and documentation with the supplier’s technology, C2C solves the client’s business problems with total facility solutions.
