Mountain View, CA, United States, 2007/04/02 - Omnitrol Networks today announced a technology, sales and marketing agreement with Alien Technology that will enable Omnitrol to deliver real-time network edge solutions using Omnitrol platform and Alien RFID reader technology.
As part of the partnership and technology collaboration, Omnitrol Networks will deploy Alien’s RFID readers to deliver end-to-end RFID-based solutions for asset tracking, promotion monitoring, and work-in-progress visibility. The combination of Alien’s RFID readers and Omnitrol Network’s edge service engine enables the creation of real-time warehouse, factory floor, and supply chain business applications without separate middleware or back-end system dependencies.
“Omnitrol Networks’ offering combines middleware, device management and networking functions that reduce costs and time-to-market for real-time RFID-based edge services,” said Terry Pruett, Director of Channel Development, Alien Technology Corporation. “We look forward to continued collaboration with Omnitrol to bring the benefits of RFID to our customers.”
Omnitrol Networks and Alien Technology will work together to develop a training curriculum on the use, adaptation and deployment of Alien and Omnitrol products.
“Alien Technology is the leading provider of RFID products and is widely adopted by retail, transportation, manufacturing, defense and logistics industries” said Raj Saksena, president and CEO of Omnitrol Networks. “By combining technologies from Alien and Omnitrol, our two companies are significantly reducing the barriers to RFID technology adoption, and bringing intelligence to the edge of the network to create a new range of services to increase process visibility.”
Under the terms of the agreement, Alien Technology and Omnitrol Networks will work together to market, sell and support solutions leveraging RFID technology. With explosive growth in the adoption of RFID technology in retail, consumer goods, manufacturing process, defense, transportation, logistics, pharmaceuticals and other industries, the Alien and Omnitrol partnership will facilitate the rapid creation and deployment of real-time solutions to interact with business process to reduce cost, increase efficiency and transparency, while providing conformance to EPC global standards and practices.
Omnitrol Networks’ solutions will be demonstrated live in the Alien booth at the DoD RFID Summit in Washington, DC April 3-4, 2007.
