Around this same time, RFID technology went through a massive transformation with huge levels of technical investment. UHF RFID was all the buzz. It used the same revolutionary way of communicating as the Mu-chip did, called backscatter communication. At UHF frequencies, it could read from tens of feet away, not inches. Some big gorilla retailers had visions of using it for unattended monitoring of everything in their supply chains, and willed it to happen with supplier mandates for applying these RFID labels to every box of goods entering their distribution systems. Stock outs would disappear because both the retailers and suppliers would have x-ray vision at to where everything was moving from factory to shopping cart.
I moved onward to sell retailer compliance services for the new RFID mandates. Then on to gamma sterilizable RFID applications and medical device tracking. Then as fate would have it, I met up with a security consultant from a past introduction. He suggested I introduce myself to the guys at DSS Plastics Group. They made plastic cards and they wanted to expand their RFID product reach. I introduced DSS Plastics Group to a past customer that needed large quantities of UHF RFID cards printed quickly. DSS stood up to the incredible challenge and delivered. I was so impressed. I came to work for the company. And yes, the plastic shop 2 miles from my previous employer could have made that card I looked all over the world for. My direct phone number is 1 415 585-1214. Email button below.
