Hewlett-Packard and Royal Philips Electronics have announced they will partner to accelerate the adoption of the next-generation global RFID standard.

For Philips, the partnership is the latest move to ensure interoperability of its Gen2 RFID solutions with those of both its partners and competitors, encouraging market adoption. Philips inked a collaboration with Texas Instruments Inc. in June.

Both H-P and Philips expect the collaboration to ensure that adopters of RFID achieve a seamless migration from the previous infrastructure while capitalizing on the global interoperability and increased performance that Gen2 offers.

A key part of the collaboration will take place at HP's Sao Paolo, Brazil facility, where testing of advanced RFID supply chain concepts occurs. HP will use Philips' Gen2 RFID technology at the location, replacing the UCODE EPC 1.19 currently in use. HP plans to use the Philips technology in other locations in the future.

"By working closely with Philips, HP will help assure customers that Philips Gen2 chips and their existing solutions work together effectively," said Frank Lanza, worldwide director, RFID, HP Services, in a statement. "As a result, customers will be more able to achieve the cost-savings and strategic advantage offered by next-generation RFID technologies."
