HP Opens European RFID Solutions Center

HP today unveiled an RFID Solutions Center in Milan, Italy, and announced that the company has been designated a strategic RFID technology provider to Euro Pool System, the No. 1 provider of returnable packing for fresh products in Europe.

The new center is designed to spur RFID (radio frequency identification) adoption by providing HP partners and customers with access to RFID innovations and resources to develop and test integrated solutions, host projects in a single, secure environment, and share technical knowledge more easily.

BEA Systems, Microsoft and SAP are among the companies that provide software for RFID technology at the center, and customers can demo software from those partners to see the RFID technology at work.

RFID is a data collection technology that provides suppliers, retailers, manufacturers and distributors with up-to-the-minute supply chain visibility, from inventory and logistics to freshness dates. Such timely supply chain information enables companies to track products and services, increase stock availability, reduce shrinkage and ultimately improve business outcomes.

The HP RFID Solutions Center also is intended to anticipate new customer requirements and employ its research and development capabilities to bring solutions to market. Key services at the facility include:

  • Integration Center : Partners can test and integrate HP technologies to develop comprehensive solutions.
  • Project Hosting : A single, secure environment enables the development and testing of a multitude of RFID projects.
  • Demo Lab : HP customers and partners use demo areas to collaborate on new services and learn about implementations in specific industries.
  • Training Center : Internal HP staff, customers and partners convene to exchange technical knowledge.

HP also partnered with ADT, which is part of Tyco International and has a strong track record in electronic security and tagging and significant experience in RFID. ADT provided RFID reader hardware, reader deployment services and system performance tuning services to Euro Pool System.
