No comments

It will be here before you know it – June is National Microchipping Month which means animal support groups are raising awareness to highlight the benefits of RFID pet identification for dogs, cats and other companion animals.
The microchipping process is relatively straight forward. It involves inserting a small RFID transponder encased in a BIO glass tag beneath the animal’s skin. The chip is programmed following ISO standard with a unique pet ID number.
The microchip can be read with any scanner, and follow the link of the animal ID numbers to online pet databases to trace a lost or stolen animal and return it to its rightful owner. Official organization can also use the RFID microchip and add information to the database such as medical history, vaccination schedules, updated owner addresses and more.
Around the world, Switzerland now requires it for all dogs as well as horses and pet databases help national and local governments monitor pet populations, and hold all the necessary information to easily contact the pet owner if necessary. In the U.K., some dog groomers, animal shelters and local government entities have begun offering the microchipping service.

Ensuring regulatory compliance is upheld, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is now implementing and RIFD solution to monitor and track the movement of e-broker devices on its New York trading floor.

The solution will consist of attaching Wi-Fi RFID tags to NYSE’s handheld e-broker devices to provide data and information about the location and status of the devices, and enable NYSE to monitor broker compliance with exchange trading rules.

NYSE and NYSE Annex rules state that brokers are to trade equities and options in separate trading environments, thereby restricting the movement of brokers and the handheld devices they use between trading floors.

With the RFID solution any device that illegally crosses between different areas will be identified using automated alerts. Traders and their device locations will also be displayed on monitors using viewing software.
