Who we are

Started in 2014 as a sister magazine of “RFID im Blick”

The first english-language issues for our international readership were direct translations of our German-language magazine “RFID im Blick” – from our content to our layout. In 2016, the first independent international magazine was published for international release - “RFID im Blick Global”. The next milestone came in 2017 with a name change – the international magazine is now named “RFID & Wireless IoT Global”. The title reflects a redefining of our content: RFID technology is still at the centre of our reporting. But from 2017 on forward, we will also look beyond technological limitations and examine full world of wireless IoT.

Why RFID AND Wireless IoT?

The answer is easy: The possibilities of connecting, transferring, processing and analysing data, the capacities and resources, the connection of sensors, as well as standards and product portfolios have continually evolved. RFID and NFC are two of the most important building blocks within the foundations of chip-based, contactless data transfer. Other technology options such as BLE, GPS, Wireless Sensing, SAW, WSN, or GSM expand the portfolio for IoT applications. These technologies are essential to gather and process wireless data to the IoT.

The complete know-how live on stage

The international conference “RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow” brings all of our competencies to the grand stage on two days of the year – for seven years and counting. On September 27 and 28 of 2017, over 70 speakers in 9 forums will report on technologies, applications, research and rollouts. The exhibition and evening event provide optimal possibilities of networking with over 50 international RFID & wireless IoT companies and of course the speakers themselves.

IoT Needs Connectivity

Kathrein starts with the next generation of RFID systems!

The requirements for modern identification systems are increasingly defined by ERP architectures. Compared to a large percentage of RFID systems which are equipped either with a serial or a proprietary port, today only a few percent are equipped with a slow and non-network-ready protocol. The reason lies in a constant need for optimisation and efficiency gains in a production and logistics environment.
