Approval of revised standard for RFID at UHF

Following the successful outcome to the National Vote in March ETSI has published EN 302 208-1 v1.2.1, which is Part 1 of the revised standard for RFID at UHF.

The new standard introduces the 4 channel plan and removes the mandatory requirement for "Listen before Talk". This will enables large numbers of RFID interrogators to operate simultaneously on the same site and will improve system performance when reading tags. It is anticipated the Commission will harmonise the standard in the Autumn of 2008.

A copy of the standard is available for download in Members Publications. More information is available in the RFID sector.
