Omni-ID: Leading the Pack in RFID for IT Asset Tracking

Third Party Testing Validates Consistency and Performance of Omni-ID Tags vs Competitive Products

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 11, 2012) - Omni-ID, the original patent holder and supplier of high-performance, on-metal passive UHF RFID tags and visual tagging systems, today shared the results of some recent performance testing conducted by the engineers at the RFID Network on a variety of RFID tags for IT Asset Management applications, from multiple vendors.

Known for their "Consumer Reports" like quality and thorough testing, the RFID Network is considered by industry experts as one of the world's most credible sources for technical information on RFID. The RFID Network is a group of engineers whose mission is to evaluate radio frequency identification (RFID) systems in the real-world environments. The team produces video & in-depth technical articles about RFID, Real Time Location Systems (RTLS), & wireless RF sensor networks (WSN).

This latest report summarizes the growing trend toward utilizing RFID for tracking IT assets in the data center environment:

"The largest data centers in the world are now using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for IT asset management. There are numerous companies claiming to have RFID tags designed for IT asset management. The RFID Network engineers did performance testing of commercially available RFID tags advertised as complying with the FSTC Guidelines for IT asset management...What we found was the Prox NG from Omni-ID had the furthest overall read performance, and more importantly, the least amount of orientation sensitivity..."

"We're certainly not surprised by these results," said George E. Daddis, Jr. PhD, CEO of Omni-ID. "Omni-ID tags are known for quality, performance and reliability across the board -- our team, product development and QA processes are second to none. We've taken the time to truly understand the data center application, and create a solution that our customers can rely on - no matter where they place the tag, or what they affix it to. Our tags have been put through some of the most rigorous, head-to-head competitive testing environments by our Fortune 500 customers -- and we have come out on top every time. Our lower profile tags, with proven global, consistent performance on or off metal have made us the top selling RFID tag for IT asset tracking in data centers for companies across the globe."

Omni-ID is the selected supplier of RFID tags for leading companies like Cisco, HP, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Intel, GoDaddy, L-3 Communications, The US Department of Veterans' Affairs, the US Department of State, The Tennessee Valley Authority, the City of Las Vegas, the UK Government Department of Health and Social Security and NASA to track a variety of data center and IT assets.
