News from Kathrein Solutions IoT
For consumers, the impact of the IoT may be summarised as greater convenience, for example, many people now use contactless payment, something that is enabled by short-range RF communications between a payment terminal and a bank card, mobile phone or smart watch equipped with the same technology. Recently, the introduction of Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) RFID technology has extended that potential.

A Powerful IoT Solutions Team
The demand for IoT solutions is growing significantly
The once-frequent discussion of whether RFID is one of the enabling technologies for the IoT or not has finally been decided, Thomas Brunner says: “There is a broad consensus about RFID technology today. Based on this consensus, there is a change in perspectives. Customers interested in digitalisation technologies no longer ask for a specific technology or a specific even of hardware. Instead, they ask for a solutions provider who possesses hardware know-how, IT know-how, and can offer custom consulting for the individual situation. This creates a new business approach that we take up with the creation of Kathrein Solutions.”
Kathrein has launched the new RAIN reader firmware with tremendous features. Due to new high-speed profiles, a total number of more than 750 real tag reads per second is possible! In addition, we have increased the reader sensitivity by adding a powerful carrier cancellation which impresses with extremely fast tracking of the carrier data. To use the new feature, please download the reader firmware 3.02.00.1354 and the latest ReaderStart software 3.02.00.2744.
