IBM Announces WebSphere RFID Information Center

IBM is building on its existing WebSphere RFID middleware stack with the Dec. 15 introduction of its WebSphere RFID Information Center.

The new technology provides a standard way to collect the massive amounts of data that is expected to be created by sensors and RFID tags, and then links that data to existing processes, and pushes it out to partners.

The idea is that by basing the repository on internationally accepted standards, companies will be better able to share RFID data across their firewalls.
