Intermec Technologies Corp. recently the Intellitag Generation 2 UHF radio frequency identification (RFID) technology, which the company said has been demonstrated and will be implemented in 2005.

According to Intermec, the platform provides the following benefits: reliable RFID tags with unlimited read-write capabilities; frequency hopping, to maximize read ranges needed in typical supply chain operations; operation at multiple communications frequencies, which is required for global implementations; global interoperability and the ability to migrate to relevant emerging global RFID standards; FCC Part 15 operation to avoid the need for a separate commission site license for each U.S.-deployed reader; operation under new, higher-power European frequency requirements; and the ability to operate many readers in close proximity using the platform’s "dense reader mode."
