Laptops, Servers, and the latests mobile phones all gain intelligence from an Operating System (OS). It took the RFID industry six years to realize the thick-client server-based model was a 1970s way of deploying technology. But once the industry had a solution adoption has been fierce. ODIN's founder was inspired by the way the iPhone changed mobile phone technology and created EasyEdge™.
Once ODIN invented the world's first RFID Operating System - replacing expensive RFID middleware - the market reaction was immediate and profound. It was one of the breakthoughs end users were waiting for. They wanted to elimiante servers and excess network traffic they were consolidating data centers at a time when agressive VC backed RFID software companies were demaing they use server based infrastructure. They wanted intelligence at the edge. They wanted a much cheaper model. ODIN delivered.

ODIN learned from real-world experience in over 500 RFID projects, designing and deploying the largest and most complex RFID systems in the world that RFID 1.0 would never scale. Our engineers identified recurring issues that took time and specialized knowledge to resolve; so we decided to automate the solutions with specialized RFID software. Our clients told us we had to deploy accurate RFID systems without adding more servers to their network or another costly and cumbersome enterprise application that meant no more "RFID Middleware". Large-scale end users called for a new operating system specifically for RFID, an RFID software that simplified the architecture, increased accuracy and was embedded on the readers.
After three years of R&D and millions of dollars of investment EasyEdge™ was born. It is the first Operating Sytem for RFID readers. Clients like Vail Resorts, DePuy a division of J&J and many others count on EasyEdge™ across hundreds of readers to deliver 99.9% accuracy and simpl scalability.
An agent-based RFID operating system that replaces costly middleware
EasyEdge™ provides passive RFID middleware functionality in an agent based form, on any RFID device. EasyEdge™ is designed to replace traditional passive RFID middleware or augment it with additional features at the device level. It takes RFID software to a whole new level and helps you maximize existing investment in enterprise applications like SAP, Oracle, Maximo, etc. The solution reduces RFID integration, maintenance, management, and support costs by as much as 75%. EasyEdge™ functions range from device integration to automated RFID read per formance and RFID filtering, device monitoring and ancillary RFID reader control. The EasyEdge™ agent runs directly on RFID readers eliminating the need for costly server infrastructure or specialized RFID tracking software. EasyEdge™ also integrates effortlessly into other RFID middleware, custom applications, and enterprise systems. The peer-to-peer EasyEdge™ architecture adds both scalability and reliability to RFID systems, and the connection architecture enables the ultimate flexibility of connections to a diverse set of RFID readers.
The world's largest RFID deployments are leveraging EasyEdge™
Industry leaders in the financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing world have all leveraged EasyEdge™ to save millions of dol lars over the lifetime of an RFID deployment. In one of ODIN's deployments for a company owned by Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway, EasyEdge was deployed at more than 40 sites and saved almost $2 million over traditional RFID 1.0 middleware, making the project a huge success. And at Vail Resorts hundreds of RFID readers are deployed in the far reaches of the Rocky Mountains and Sierra Nevadas for the EpicMix program running automatically with great accuacy. Your project can be just as successful if you leverage EasyEdge™.
EasyEdge is the first RFID Operating System designed by the best RF Engineers in the world, driven by end users, and proven on the largest RFID deployments in the world. Contact an ODIN software specialist today for more information.
