RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification)
In today's digital world, it is essential for companies to find innovative solutions to optimize their processes and increase their competitiveness. Kathrein Solutions stands for enabling individual solutions for your digital transformation. As your partner in RFID, RTLS, IoT and more, we offer customized OEM solutions tailored to your specific needs and projects. In doing so, we cover a wide range of wireless technologies and products to meet your individual requirements:
We support a variety of frequency ranges, standards and wireless protocols to ensure we can provide the right technology for your needs:
- HF (High Frequency, ISO 14443, 15693),
- NFC (Near Field Communication),
- UHF (Ultra High Frequency, ISO 18000-63C)
- RAIN RFID
Whether NFC for reading an intelligent nameplate , UHF for recording thousands of products in logistics tracking or HF as a standard for access control, Kathrein offers the customized solution.
BLE (BLUETOOTH LOW ENERGY, IEEE 802.15.4):
Our Bluetooth Low Energy solutions, including transponders and beacons, enable precise localization, tracking and access control. This technology offers high accuracy and efficiency in tracking assets or people indoors, but also outdoors. We support the latest standards from Bluetooth 4.0 to 5.2.

RTLS (REAL-TIME LOCATION SYSTEMS):
Our RTLS solutions include nodes/anchors, and transponders/beacons that operate using UWB (Ultra Wide Band technology, IEEE 802.15.42). This enables highly precise localization and tracking of objects or people in real time.
The Kathrein RTLS Platform (K-RTLS) offers a variety of different measurement methods, each of which can be ideally configured for your application. The different methods "Angle of Arrival" (AoA), "Time of Flight" (ToF) and "Time Difference of Arrival" (TDoA) each differ in speed, precision, energy efficiency and outdoor capability.
Our advanced software CrossTalk Software Suite enables seamless integration and management of your wireless systems. It provides powerful tools for data analysis, reporting and optimization of your processes.
Our approach to delivering OEM solutions follows a structured process consisting of five main phases:
In this phase, we evaluate your specific requirements and goals to gain a clear understanding of the product to be developed.
2. Conceptual design
Based on the evaluation, we develop a detailed concept for the OEM solution that covers all aspects of the product, from functionality to design.
3. Simulation - (Virtual) Proof of Concept
In addition to the physical proof of concept, Kathrein Solutions offers a virtual proof of concept using complex simulation software. All project data determined in an initial workshop are entered into the radio propagation modeling and simulation tool. Based on this virtual PoC, the partner or customer receives a first, already very resilient project concept. Learn more about our virtual proof of concept.

Our experienced engineers and technicians put the concept into practice and develop a high-quality product that meets your specific requirements. We use state-of-the-art EM simulation tools and measurement capabilities to ensure our products perform optimally. Our expertise includes the development of RFID and RTLS systems as well as custom transponders.
5. Serialization and production
After development and extensive testing, we ensure that the product is ready for mass production. We produce samples, perform measurements and compare them with the simulations to validate the performance in the real environment. You will then receive the orders we produce.
If you would like to learn more about our OEM solutions and supported technologies, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are ready to shape the future of your digital projects together with you.
Our Case Studies show how our solutions have helped companies in various industries achieve their goals.
Axess Ski Resort:
Kathrein Solutions worked with Axess ski resort to reduce waiting times at the entrances. Kathrein Solutions' solution is based on UHF RFID technology and enables ski tickets to be scanned from a greater distance.
