Sun is planning a radio frequency identification (RFID) system that will combine the abilities of its existing IT asset management platforms with RFID to track non-networked items such as hospital equipment and office furniture.
Sun and its partners have named the technology, which is still under development, Sun RFID Industry Solution for Physical Asset Tracking.
Sun is aiming to make RFID a pervasive technology, whereby all assets, not just those deemed to be mission critical, can always be tracked when necessary.
The solution is aimed at different parts of a business or public sector organisation that can’t easily be networked using traditional means.
No release date for the RFID Industry Solution for Physical Asset Tracking has been confirmed by Sun.
