French National RFID Center

French National RFID CenterCreated by the French Government, the French National RFID Center encourages the deployment of RFID – Radio Frequency IDentification. RFID is an automatic identification technology offering potential applications in all sectors (retail, health, aeronautic industry, leisure, transportation …). Active RFID tags and passive RFID tags appears in different form factors: RFID tags, RFID badges, RFID cards … These RFID tags are generally associated with RFID readers connected to the information system. Commonly used RFID frequencies are: RFID LF (125 and 134.2 kHz), RFID HF (13.56 MHz) and RFID UHF (860-960 MHz). For HF RFID, the physical principles and applications are identical to those used for NFC (Near Field Communication) or contactless smart cards. Associated with sensors network, these RFID technologies are the basis for future applications of the Internet of Things (IoT). The CNRFID supports the RFID suppliers, RFID users, institutions and research organizations according to their needs by promoting the use of ISO or EPC standards. It brings together over 120 national and international stakeholders involved in the development of RFID projects.
