INNOVATION AT CONFIDEX
WORKING WITH RFID INDUSTRY TO NURTURE THE NEXT WAVE OF THE INTERNET ENABLED AND CONNECTED THE WORLD
Innovation is embedded in the core of the company values, and the need to understand the customers’ needs and requirements is in Confidex’s DNA. The aim is to lead the industry by continuously developing performance and skills. Confidex is working with the key industry consortiums to further develop RFID technology to meet the demands of the new connected world. As an example, Confidex is a member of the RAIN industry alliance whose purpose is to promote various RFID initiatives and to accelerate UHF RFID growth and adoption in business and consumer applications worldwide.
§ To date, Confidex UHF RFID tags and labels have been used in many of the harshest industrial environments – including the demanding production conditions in automotive manufacturing, pulp and paper processing, as well as global supply chains.
§ Developing such RFID solutions has demanded special domain understanding, RF engineering, ingenious packaging design and materials knowhow. Typically, RFID tags have performed poorly near metal and moisture, but Confidex has created unique patent-pending RFID antenna technology, overcoming the limitations caused by the environment.
INNOVATIONS IN SMART TICKETING SUPPORT A GROWING NUMBER OF COMMUTERS AND A VARIETY OF SERVICES
Contactless ticketing solutions using RFID – while being more robust and secure than traditional paper tickets and magnetic stripe technology – enable smooth passenger flows at mass transportation hubs or events. In addition, commuters benefit from improved product quality and safety of Confidex Smart Ticketing solutions.
