Tyco Electronics announced a strategic alliance with OATSystems to provide a series of RFID solutions to a variety of vertical markets that include aerospace and defense, transportation, and industrial segments.

"They want a single-source provider with the products and experience to bring scalable, low-risk RFID capabilities to their operations. By aligning with OATSystems, Tyco Electronics can now offer its customers the best of both worlds: solutions from the leader in RFID enabled software applications combined with Tyco Electronics' extensive services and hardware."
OATSystems software covers the entire RFID process from tagging to data capture and analysis. With over two-hundred deployments, OAT's solutions incorporate the industry's best practices and proven uses cases enabling organizations to deploy solutions in less time, with less risk. Its software solutions incorporate a visual, easy to use high level tooling capability enabling customers to create, modify and adapt processing to meet their specific needs quickly and easily. Whether a business needs to track assets or has a work-in-process application, OAT can integrate data from heterogeneous tag sources including passive, active and sensory tags. This integration opens the door for business users to gain visibility into inventory and asset movement throughout their entire supply chains from multiple geographically dispersed facilities and across multiple trading partners. Tyco Electronics will provide the RFID labels, readers, antennas, and the integration and support expertise to enable companies at any stage of RFID deployment to do so efficiently and effectively.
