College RFID Program

RFID program created at local college
Stratum Global and Intermec collaborate to create RFID (radio frequency identification) program at Oakton Community College to prepare students for greater opportunities in the workplace. ...

... "Oakton's RFID program provides hands-on experience in a simulated industrial warehouse environment to prepare students for opportunities in the workplace. Intermec provided its IF5 RFID readers with 700 series mobile computers and portal antennas. Stratum Global, an RFID software provider and Intermec Honours Partner, was lead on the project and provided its TagNet RFID software solution suite.

The curricula will prepare students for managerial and technical positions within the transportation, warehousing and logistics industries. In addition to gaining RFID technical expertise, the program will teach students how to measure and communicate the business value of RFID implementations to non-technical managers. " ...
