rfidIotWhat is it?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the coming connectivity of everything you own, everything you see. No longer will access to the internet be limited to single point interfaces like your phone or computer, or single-point data sources like web pages or servers. Nor will it be limited to you! Everything you see can, and someday will, be interconnected and sharing data: your tv, your refrigerator, your home, your car, the roads you drive on, the building you work in, the package you’re delivering… everything.

So far, the Internet of Things has been most closely associated with machine-to-machine (M2M) communication in manufacturing and power, oil and gas utilities. Products built with M2M communication capabilities are often referred to as being smart.

Why do I care?

IoT will affect the way we live and work. IoT will impact every industry out there: Healthcare, Manufacturing, Transportation & Logisitics, Retail, Hospitality, Warehousing, and so on. Your competitors will be embracing IoT capabilities to find a competitive advantage, the same advantage you want to get first. The advantage that comes with speed, efficiency, and a clear view of your assets and operations, your people and inventory, 24/7 in real time.

What technology is involved?

Many objects involved with the IoT will be “intelligent” devices, like your refrigerator and TV, with the means to access the internet wirelessly. Other items like retail products, shipping containers, and business assets will be tagged with RFID labels that will allow their immediate tracking/management.

Zebra’s wide RFID offering can easily provide you the means to create the RFID labels with their ZD500R and  ZT410 RFID printers and track them from the warehouse floor with the MC3190-Z to the retail storefront with the RFD5500 and DS9808-R
