A thorough understanding of wireless technologies and software development enables Azure to provide
RFID technologies that expand real-time visibility to the edge of the enterprise, empowering organizations
to improve asset utilization and visibility, improve personnel safety and streamline and automate
We can help you understand whether passive or active RFID is best for your application, meet your
requirements for passive and active RFID readers, tags and antennas and provide system engineering, as
well as custom tag and reader development and software development for a new RFID application.
Passive RFID technologies utilize tags that are less
expensive than active RFID tags, but have a rather
reduced read range, making them appropriate in
applications where it is possible to read them at
Passive tags have no battery. Instead, they rely
on RF energy transferred from the reader to the
tag to power the tag. Passive RFID tags typically
have a read range of up to 3' but, at certain
frequencies and optimal conditions, can be read at
up to 20'.
Azure is very experienced in active RFID
technologies, which transcend the basic data
acquisition functionality of traditional, limited read
range, passive RFID technologies.
Unlike passive RFID, active RFID tags are battery
powered and provide read ranges of up to several
hundred feet and can incorporate monitoring of
temperature, humidity, direction, motion, contact,
tamper, GPS and a number of other options that
make them even more versatile.
The imagination is truly the only limitation when it
comes down to realizing the potential benefits of
active RFID for applications like proximity
awareness for increasing safety and awareness.
Azure Solutions can assist enterprises with the
development of custom RFID readers, tags and
antennas that meet needs for specific form factors
and increased functionality or features, eliminating
compromises to desired objectives .
Whether active or passive, we can work with you
to develop a new form factor or incorporate new
technology into an RFID product that meets your
