Neology Receives OmniAir 6C Certification for RFID Tags
Neology Receives OmniAir 6C Certification for RFID Tags SAN DIEGO, CA -- (July 09, 2014) - Neology, a subsidiary of RFID industry pacesetter SMARTRAC, announced today that it has received Certification for its 6C Dual Mode Switch Tag, 6C Hard Case Transportation Tag, and 6C Standard Windshield Sticker Tag from OmniAir Certification Services (OCS). The OCS Certification validates that Neology tags comply with baseline interoperability and applied interoperability across equipment vendors and facilities and withstand conditions of the toll environment. All three tags certified by OCS are based on RFID ICs from NXP Semiconductors.
Neology's high speed and high performance 6C Dual Mode Switch Tag is designed for electronic toll collection (ETC) and high occupancy toll (HOT) lane applications. The dual mode feature of the Switch Tag allows for differentiation between two separate accounts, including a standard toll account versus a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) account, or a personal account versus a business account. Neology's 6C Hard Case Transportation Tag boasts the high speed and high performance features desired in an RFID tag, but in a thin, sleek design. In addition, Neology's 6C Sticker Tag pairs high performance with proprietary security features through the incorporation of custom programming, printing, and optional holographic elements.
"The certification of our 6C Dual Mode Switch Tag, 6C Hard Case Transportation Tag, and 6C Standard Windshield Sticker Tag strengthens our position as a market leader in Vehicle Registration and Tolling. Utilizing the proven RFID IC technology provided by our partner, NXP Semiconductors, our tags will enable game-changing electronic toll collection (ETC) and high occupancy toll (HOT) lane applications," said Francisco Martinez, CEO, Neology.
"As the world's leading global identification leader in RFID and NFC integrated circuits (IC's) we believe interoperability, quality and versatile performance are keys to our customers' success. Neology's certification of its RFID tags, based on NXP's IC's is a testament to the functionality of these devices," said Suresh Palliparambil, Sales Director Americas, NXP Semiconductors.
