Oracle Unwraps RFID Edge Server Upgrades

Oracle Corp. rolled out upgrades to Oracle Sensor Edge Server on Wednesday.

Oracle Sensor Edge Server, an important piece in Oracle Fusion Middleware 10g, lets companies integrate a variety of products from existing IT infrastructures with RFID and sensor networks.

Companies can expect this version to provide out-of-the-box integration with RFID devices; management for RFID tag readers, antennas, tag printers; and better real-time visibility and event management capabilities. "We're trying to make deployment easy for companies that are forced to put in RFID systems," said Amlan Debnath, Oracle vice president of server technologies. "We're continuing to look for ways to simplify the process for companies that have been dragged to the table."

Debnath said companies forced to deploy RFID spend about $100,000 on deployments. But those executives that recognize RFID can deliver a competitive advantage spend more.

Oracle has built in analytics. Once data collects in the repository, reports are available to help employees make sense of the data. "We have made all RFID and sensor information available in a data repository, which enables companies to analyze the data to drive business processes," Debnath said.
