Symbol Technologies Inc., a Holtsville, NY-based company that provides enterprise mobility solutions, announced that its newly released product, Symbol XR400, an enterprise-class RFID reader, will support Microsoft's newly announced RFID product offering.
Just announced last week, Microsoft's RFID infrastructure is built on top of the Microsoft .NET Framework and will allow customers using readers to capture and interpret data to track and trace assets in real-time. Customers using inventory management applications in retail, for example, will be able to manage information instantly.
"Microsoft is committed to providing tools and technologies that enable business process and supply chain efficiency," said Ted Kummert, Microsoft corporate vice president, business process and integration division. "RFID is an increasingly important technology, and we believe there is a tremendous opportunity to increase business performance for manufacturers, distributors, retailers and other industries."
