Professional Services

RFID Institute. SA is Africa’s leading vendor-neutral RFID centre, providing education and expert professional services to all organisations intending to implement, or simply learn more about RFID. With our extensive expertise and partner alliances with leading RFID product vendors, we represent the RFID industry by advising the end-user on the most appropriate RFID solution to suit their requirements. There are several versions of RFID that operate at different radio frequencies. The choice of frequency is dependent on the business requirements and read environment.
