Sun Microsystems has introduced a new version of its radio frequency identification (RFID) software, to make it easier for firms to deploy and manage RFID networks.
Sun Java System RFID Software 3.0 is also designed to help users manage higher volumes of data and it can be more easily integrated with other enterprise systems, said Sun.
The new software is compatible with the open source Sun Solaris 10 Operating System, as well as the Linux and Microsoft Windows platforms.
Comtrol, which makes RFID handheld data collecting devices, is to start offering RFID controllers based on Sun’s RFID Software 3.0, said Sun.
RFID Software 3.0 also now supports Java ME-based devices, integration with the Java Composite Application Platform Suite, an improved management console and an extended developer kit.
Sun said the software had also been integrated with the SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure, to allow data to be passed from Sun-based RFID devices to the mySAP Business Suite.
Sun said this would make it easier for enterprises to quickly integrate RFID data into their back-end SAP business systems.
