Abstract

This paper provides an insight into the operation of the radio frequency identification (RFID) component of the EPC™ network. It is aimed at a non-technical audience, in particular those wishing to deploy EPC™ network applications within their organisations. It will provide this audience with an understanding of how such applications will operate at an RFID level. Issues that are covered include the physics of operation of radio communications systems in general and of RFID in particular, the different types of RFID system that are available, legislation regarding the use of RFID around the world and standardisation efforts in this area.
