Hewlett-Packard is expanding its RFID services for IT-infrastructure tracking with the introduction of the HP Factory Express RFID service. The service features the application of EPC Gen 2 RFID tags to the blade servers and other IT assets a company orders, and is an extension of HP's Factory Express offering. Factory Express provides HP's customers with preconfigured IT products that the company installs and tests for them, allowing the customers to get up and running with functional servers, data storage and other IT products right out of the box.
By having the HP Factory Express RFID service apply tags to the product they order, says Frank Lanza, worldwide RFID director for HP's Technology Solutions Group, customers can employ fixed-position or handheld RFID readers to begin tracking the IT assets' locations as soon as they receive them.
