RAIN RFID, a member organization of AIM, is a global alliance promoting the universal adoption of UHF RFID technology. The RAIN acronym is derived from RAdio frequency IdentificatioN and is intended to be a link between UHF RFID and the cloud, where RFID-based data can be stored, managed and shared via the Internet. RAIN uses the GS1 UHF Gen2 protocol (also commonly referred to as EPC) which ISO/IEC has standardized as 18000-63.
“We’re excited to be a part of this alliance. It gives us a unique opportunity to learn, contribute our expertise to the industry and to help push RFID technologies forward. Perhaps we can even influence the market in our own small way. RFID technologies are a key driver of the future, and RAIN is the global resource center for UHF passive technologies” said Chris Brown, RFID Business Development Manager, Printronix Auto ID.
The RAIN RFID Alliance currently has multiple workgroups, where members of the Alliance work together on projects that target specific markets and industries, or technical topics. The workgroups have regular calls, and face-to-face meetings at RAIN RFID Alliance events. Printronix Auto ID is active in the RAIN RFID Alliance, including participation in the, Aviation and Healthcare workgroups.
