What is Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID)?
Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) is a technology where digital data encoded in RFID tags or smart cards are captured by an RFID reader via radio waves.
There are three major components of RFID: the RFID tag, the RFID reader, and the antenna. Using an antenna, the reader transmits signals to tags, which receive the information and retransmit it to the reader along with the data in their memory.
Advantages of using RFID
Deploy RFID readers around your organization to track progress, monitor real-time logins, and boost efficiency.
RFID system can be helpful to industry to reduce costs and improve customer services.
RFID technology is designed to operate in extreme environments, including cold, heat, and wet conditions, both indoors and outdoors.
You can reuse RFID labels by deleting their stored data and replacing them with new data.
RFID authentications for any use case
Enroll your proximity or contactless smart cards once, and you can authenticate across your enterprise, to any computer or app. Utilize your existing credential infrastructure by enrolling your current badges, saving cost and reducing impact on users.
