, hardware vendors have had to develop the whole solution themselves, which has led to proprietary technology, rigid architectures and limited application functionality.
With more than 20 years working together with advanced data capture technologies, embedding IBM's WRDI is a natural extension to align Symbol and IBM's Collaborative Global Market Strategy.
IBM's WRDI software was developed to meet the demand for an embedded open standards-based software platform to provide automatic RFID data collection and reporting from remote locations where on-site IT services are not available.
WRDI extracts value from the captured information and can potentially convert that information into an electronic service that can help perform strategic functions.
was developed for RFID device manufacturers who need an embedded open-standards based software platform to provide automatic RFID data collection and reporting from remote locations where on-site IT services are not available.
The ALR-9800 with embedded WRDI represents the marriage of best-in-class RFID with IBM's global reach and enterprise-quality technologies and services," said Susan Pearson, Vice President of Alliances for Alien Technology.
The ALR-9800 with embedded WRDI client software on the reader integrates with IBM WebSphere RFID Premises Server offering customers the ability to interpret and correlate high volumes of RFID data gathered from the ALR-9800 to gain instant visibility of RFID tagged pallets and products to improve operational efficiency.
