Network Programs (India) Ltd (NPI), a supplier of network solutions, submitted a patent application for a four-technology (4T) middleware platform that interconnects RFID hands-on training to be highlighted at HP tech forum" target=_blank>radio frequency identification (RFID), SmartCards, biometric and telematics systems.

The product, branded as SmartFlo, provides network administrators with a flexibly and scaleable solution that interfaces legacy applications with 4T networks and solutions. NPI explained that SmartFlo enables organizations to link existing applications, such as attendance, inventory, human resources and finance systems, to new technologies through standardized data exchanges or customized translation programs for 4T applications.

NPI CEO and President Vipin Tyagi commented, "This patent application validates our passion for innovation and positions NPI as a technology leader in the RFID space. We plan to augment our current intellectual property rights with additional innovations to create a solution ecosystems that enable our customers to rapidly and cost-effectively implement 4T systems."

Smartflo combines a sophisticated element management with a dynamic workflow engine that allows a high degree of flexibility to configure and scale the systems. "It is a robust framework for integrating various identification devices on a single platform. The advantage of using this framework is that application logic can be changed without affecting the code for reading or writing to devices," explained Somen Ghosh, director of network solutions at NPI. "The actual hardware need not be changed giving the application independence from devices and vice versa."

Smartflo is targeted towards solution providers and large enterprises that require multiple input devices and/or multiple business applications requiring data identification and transfer.
