Currently contracted to strengthen secure authentication in the Internet of Things (IoT) over the next three years, several million inlays from Identiv’s radio-frequency identification (RFID) portfolio will be connected to high-tech labels and attached to one-time-use medical devices in hospitals throughout Europe.
Identiv’s RFID Inlays will provide contactless identification of the devices, optimizing processes during medical procedures (i.e., checking for compatibility between different types of equipment) and protecting patients’ health and safety from counterfeiting.
“Identiv is proud that our highly secure RFID Inlays were the right fit for this project, strengthening our long-term partnership with Schreiner Group,” said Dr. Manfred Mueller, Identiv COO and GM Identity. “We see device-level authentication and anti-counterfeiting applications gaining further importance throughout the IoT, not just in the medical field.”
Meeting the highest industry standards in the challenging healthcare market, Identiv’s dry 32 x 15 mm RFID Inlays feature Infineon SRF55V02P chips. Once the three-year contract has been fulfilled, there will be discussion to expand the business.
“At Schreiner Group, it’s our mission to benefit our customers by delivering intelligent solutions that optimize processes and enhance product safety,” said Manfred Laschinger, Schreiner Group GmbH head of corporate purchasing. “Our customers are challenging us to meet the highest standards in terms of quality, reliability, and service. And we are pleased to continue working with Identiv to deliver just this.”
Identiv’s comprehensive RFID, NFC, and inlay transponder portfolio brings smart identities and security to the IoT. Identiv’s high-frequency (HF) and ultra-high frequency (UHF) 13.56 MHz RFID Inlays are completely customizable, are available as dry or wet inlays, and come in various shapes and sizes. The inlays can feature multiple designs integrating various materials, chip technologies, and frequencies for metal and non-metal environments.
