HID Global's RFID tag solution optimises waste management processes and reduces costs

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 22 November 2012 Release date- 21112012 - HID Global, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, recently announced that its industry and logistics radio frequency identification (RFID) tag solution combined with HID Global readers have been chosen by the AMCS Group, a world leading supplier of software solutions to the waste and recycling industry to help customers optimise their waste management processes, reducing costs.

HID Global's technology enables improved data collection reporting and tracking, resulting in an increase in waste collection efficiency and enhanced customer service.

HID Global worked with the AMCS Group to develop a solution that would provide their customers with the most advanced technologically, integrated solution that successfully meets the waste collection industry's challenges to improve efficiency, reduce costs, enhance customer service and retention, and increase the bottom line. The AMCS Group identified a need for reliable and durable RFID technology to better deliver real-time tracking to ensure accountability for services provided and quick resolution for bin loss or damage.

A number of customers who have implemented AMCS RFID solution have reported a drop of 80 percent in call queries within their respective call center. This is a direct result of having vital collection data available at the fingertips of the call center's staff. HID Global has partnered with AMCS for five years and has developed a custom solution to meet all of AMCS' needs.

There has been a huge shift in how the waste management industry manages its business since the introduction of RFID technology, said Jimmy Martin, chief executive officer with AMCS. RFID is now an indispensible part of AMCS solutions and our future development. Our three main criteria when selecting an RFID tag supplier were durability, quality and responsiveness HID Global was at the top of this list in all of them.

HID Global Solution Details HID Global's comprehensive range of RFID technology products offered AMCS efficient methods for real-time tracking, providing better read range, higher performance, and a wider variety of tag options. HID's Standard Bin Tag 125 kHz Unique, the Plug Tag 125 kHz Unique for specials, a custom-designed push-in bin tag for steel containers, and OEM reader modules are being deployed as part of AMCS' solution that it offers its municipality and waste collection business customers.

'Our three criteria were: durability, quality and responsiveness-HID Global came to the top of the list in all of them.' HID's RFID technology provides operational advantages to the waste management process. When the tags are embedded into the wheelie bins, readers on garbage trucks can identify the container and the system records the weight of waste. The AMCS system logs the tag's location and ties it to GPS coordinates. This information is then relayed to the management office to help better guide decisions on route efficiency and fleet optimisation. A number of municipal AMCS customers also utilise the RFID technology for recording exceptions such as missed bin, access blocked and bin contaminated.

We continue to partner closely with AMCS, learning and identifying new opportunities to revolutionise the waste and recycling industry, said Colin Thorne, EMEA sales director for Identification Technologies with HID Global. We strive to maintain a true advisory role and supply options tailored to every customers need.

HID's RFID tags help municipalities and waste removal service organisations optimise data collection speed and integrity, enabling pay-as-you-throw and recycling incentive programs. Bin and container manufacturers can choose from a broad spectrum of LF, HF and UHF passive contactless transponders that provide various levels of resistance to water, chemicals, shock and temperature variation. For field-deployed assets, Bin Tag and Plug Tag transponders install easily into standard nests, including metal and plastic bins. Additional designs provide the flexibility and versatility to tag bins and containers of any size, shape or composition.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
