From Frontline Today, ... TAGSYS a provider of RFID tags and readers operating at 13.56MHz will collaborate with NEC on the deployment of RFID systems for large-scale projects with an initial focus on Singapore and the rest of Southeast Asia. The alliance between NEC Solutions Asia Pacific NECSAP and TAGSYS allows the two companies to leverage each other's strengths in providing their customers with a comprehensive set of RFID solutions consultancy services and customer service support ...
TAGSYS has been designing and manufacturing innovative, high-performance and cost-effective RFID systems (chips, tags, antennas and reading stations) for over fifteen years. TAGSYS has today the longest experience in implementing field-proven passive RFID systems operating at 13.56 MHz and UHF frequencies.
With over 40 million RFID tags, ten thousand RFID reader systems and 500 installations worldwide, TAGSYS has emerged as the world’s leading dedicated RFID supplier. TAGSYS draws its strength from a long history of technological innovations and advancements
TAGSYS produces two types of “universal” reader platforms that the company modifies to develop application specific readers. "Universal" means that they can read most RFID chips in the market operating at 13.56MHz. Both platforms include state of the art DSP (Digital Signal Processing) technology. Both platforms also allow for rapid development of new algorithms to read 13.56 MHz chips from other manufacturers which alleviate customers' concerns regarding obsolescence. Reader types include: OEM readers -- easy to package in any low read range RFID reader or station. TAGSYS OEM readers are currently integrated in more than 15 handheld terminals and printers. Long range readers -- capable of delivering up to 7 watts output power on 4 channels. They allow the development of complex stations with several antennas and 3D algorithms for reading and writing tags in multiple orientations.
NEC's membership in EPCglobal will enable the company to participate in the process of standard creation, to join in RFID-related trials, which the organization executes, and to share advanced technologies. NEC, together with NEC Electronics Corporation and NEC Solutions (America) will initially participate in activities of creating global standards for EPC and gather necessary information and develop RFID-based solution businesses targeting the retail market in Japan and the U.S. Then, NEC and its affiliated companies plan to expand their businesses to other markets in other areas.
