UHF technology for RFID media for personal identification and in the Auto-ID sector ultimately should depend on all of our needs and technology meet the people. Always interesting to make various reviews and comparisons. Not unfounded anyway, quite high expectations for the UHF technology in the RFID field, which also always again be reformulated. In the identification industry in general look they currently so heavily on logistics in the sense of warehousing and goods control and what medium is possible in the long term in the trade at the article level. Here is a market that can well be occupied by UHF in width. To do that, turns out contactless solutions of the past, that standardization is necessary. Terms such as EPC Gen2, not expert enough to know that he has arrived in the world of products. Specially textiles some interesting things are been pushed on in the last year.

In addition to the “boring” economic considerations there are physical properties in can decide whether the use fits a technology to the problem to be solved and if there is a use case. UHF is just better suited for bridging large distances such as in shipping gates. The pallet identification projects exist at the moment but really high frequency such as UHF solutions side by side. When pilots turned out but also, that several “new” tag simply still too sensitive and to build a more complex antenna configuration for HF prefer. But the good handling of metal and an improved anti-collision but much more use cases for UHF are open, develop.

A quantitative comparison of UHF/RF in the entire market not at the moment in my opinion hardly, also helps in growth rates. Because they are just the projects in the area of ticketing and e-passport, which even longer contribute to large revenues in the HF range and continue to reset. Here, there was a significant increase in the last 2 to 3 years. Many more applications are accessible by HF and just work so that the sales here even could be increased fivefold in the 3-year period. It is already strong and happy the man who would like to see RFID as a whole pushed especially. Somehow fits the current situation for especially UHF but in the theoretical model, because after the hype a consolidation phase should come soon for the first time before device into normal waters, which creates a permanent market and then later step can expand it, also about Auto-ID also. Some even say, you will never reach the market penetration as the traditional RF technologies. Would there be careful and comparing not apples with pears. Without then here offer a vast area fear to take up, tracking, tagging, or certificates of authenticity in our consumerist world. Networking objects of everyday needs required Identmerkmale (vilified by the term “Internet of things”), which should also be thanks to RFID labelling. All mass applications where potentially UHF participate in May and is to a large extent. More research to be an alternative in the vicinity, and these different markets radiate yes even against each other. Correctly is sure that on security-related proximity solutions such as in the area of smart card there is a wide and stable basis for HF, but also companies should address more UHF technology. One must be a prophet so if you want to claim that both RFID technologies will have a longer existence side by side and a topic so, what one well and can move like a year to some omissions.
