Intelleflex Announces SLRRP-Based API for Its I-Beam™ Multi-Protocol RFID Reader

Capability Provides Enhanced Flexibility and Ease of Integration in RFID Deployments

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 14, 2005 -- Intelleflex today announced an application programming interface (API) that supports Simple Lightweight RFID Reader Protocol (SLRRP) on its I-Beam™ Reader. Intelleflex provides a complete end-to-end RFID hardware solution for high-value applications such as supply chain, asset tracking, manufacturing, and access control. Intelleflex tags and readers are designed to be globally interoperable with EPC standards and can be deployed in a mixed environment with other EPC tags and readers.

I-Beam Readers support 3.2.1MultiProtocol™ capability which provides compatibility with air protocols for current (EPC Class 1 Gen 2) as well as future (Class 2 and Class 3) standards. Using SLRRP, the I-Beam Reader allows for network management of reader functions, such as tag read/write operations, automated device discovery, and control of RF parameters, out of the box. In addition, SLRRP's extensibility gives customers the ability to utilize Intelleflex's value-added features such as a large user memory, security on demand, and sensor integration. The modular approach utilized in the I-Beam Reader architecture allows support for other reader management protocols, such as RP, RM, and ALE currently being considered by EPCGlobal.

Ashish Asthana, VP of Marketing and Product Strategy at Intelleflex, said, "Intelleflex's strategy is to provide the most flexible solutions with respect to air interface as well as back-end connectivity so that we can easily integrate with customer's IT infrastructure. We believe that having an option of SLRRP-based API helps achieve that goal."
