ITU workshop to discuss RFID

INTERNATIONAL Tele-communication Union (ITU), has concluded plans to stage a workshop to survey the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) standards.

RFID is an automatic identification method, relying on storing and remotely retrieving data using devices called RFID tags or transponders.

The workshop, slated to hold in Geneva, between February 14-15, at the ITU headquarters, is tagged ‘Networked RFID: Systems and Services, according to the Communications Officer, ITU Telecommunication Standardization Bureau, Mr Toby Johnson, is the

Mr. Johnson also explained that the workshop has become relevant because RFID is the much-touted system that enables data to be transmitted by a tiny portable device, called a tag, which is read by an RFID reader and processed according to the needs of a particular application.

ITREALMS Online recollects that analysts recently predicted that RFID will revolutionize areas of industry including supply chain management, security and mobile telecommunication services.

In addition, RFID is expected to play an important role in the realization of the Ubiquitous Network Society (UNS).

“All this will create a yet unquantified demand on telecommunication networks,” he said, stressing that currently, the market for RFID standards is extremely fragmented.

Special standards for certain limited fields of applications, he said, exist as well as quasi-proprietary or proprietary standards, just as many RFID applications still lack global standards for data formats, compatibility, interoperability, interference problems, personal information protection, authentication, key management and others.

The communications officer noted that the workshop would serve as a survey of the market in terms of standardization and identify new areas for work; it will also begin work on a standards roadmap and provide a starting point for coordination of future work.

The workshop is scheduled to center its discussions on present status of RFID technology and identify future trends, review current and future applications, services and business models leveraging networked RFIDs (NRFIDs), identify NRFID aspects relevant to telecommunications comprising services and network capabilities, architecture, QoS, performance, security.

Other issues participants would be discussing include analyzing how far existing standards could support NRFID applications and services, and identify where enhanced or new standards might be needed, identify elements for a roadmap for a standardization framework, including the clarification of the role of applicable Standards-Development Organizations (SDOs), forums and consortia.

Participants are billed to come from RFID world, and in particular, professionals involved in standards and product planning.

Salut � tous, si vous �tes � la recherche d'une opportunit�telecom de business pas contraignant, et sans besoin de vous d�placer, je vous recommande de vous lancer dans le callback t�l�phonique.
En effet, je suis tomb�e sur un site tr�s int�ressant:"miamitelecom", qui propose des partenariats dans ce domaine, sans ou presque, apport financier initial.
Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas, le callback est un syst�me de code ou de cartes t�l�phoniques (au choix), qui permet de t�l�phoner � l'�tranger � tr�s bas prix!!
Ces avantages: -1 seul num�ro utilisable � partir de n'importe quel t�l�phone, n'importe o� dans le monde. Ceci est tr�s avantageux pour les personnes qui voyagent beaucoup du fait de leur travail, ou pour celles vivant dans un pays pas tr�s d�velopp� en mati�re de t�l�communication par exemple.
- communication tr�s nette, contrairement au VOIP (=par liaison internet, ce qui n'est pas du tout satisfaisant!!)
- Beaucoup moins couteux qu'un appel classic
- C'est vous qui d�cidez combien et quand vous voulez recharger en terme de temps de communication ( par le biais de carte bancaire ou autre)
En ce qui me concerne, j'en fais l'exp�rience en ce moment, et c'est un secteur en pleine expansion ( je distribue des acc�s surtout � des chefs d'entreprises, parcourrant la plan�te, ce qui leur permet d'�tre joint � n'importe quel moment sur un m�me num�ro!)
Je cible surtout l'Afrique en g�n�ral, et j'ai vu mon chiffre d'affaires exploser en quelques mois!
Si vous �tes int�ress�s, vous pouvez contacter Mr Corona de ma part (johanna), par mail � l'adresse suivante:www.callback@miamitelecom.com
Pour plus d'informations, vous pouvez aussi vous r�f�rer au site http://www.miamitelecom.comhttp://www.miamitelecom.com
Je vous recommande de vous y int�resser, cela peut vous rapporter gros!!!
Pour finir, et juste pour info, la soci�t� � ouvert un autre d�partement qui vaut le d�tour: http://www.miamicall.ustelecom
Bien � vous.
Cordialement.
Johanna.....
