Assignment #6 2/24/2008 Middleware 1) How is middleware performance improved by incorporation of Edgeware? http://www.rfidjournal.com/article/articleview/2862/1/82/ Provides a foundation for scalability from a simple RFID printer to an automated installation. Level of redundancy that will allow intelligent operation through event-based workflows. Processes, filters, smoothes, and aggregates data with persistent data (events of alerts) with multiple readers Transports useful information to enterprise systems Provides faster throughput and data transfer. Filtering double tag reads The edgeware cleanses the data of any read errors and multiple readings not already cleansed by the readers and buffer it in a database.
