But technology has changed so fast, that I wonder if RFID is still considered a "new" technology, what's next? (or what's the hot topic nowadays?)

@MR.Roques, I think the the latest hot topic nowadays is NFC. NFC is built  on RFID systems by allowing two-way communication between endpoints, where earlier systems such as contactless smart cardswere one-way only. Infact many of th e smartphones available in the market are NFC enabled.

I was just wondering whether extending the role of mobile SIM cards would solve the same purpose.

@prabhakar_deosthali, are you suggesting that we should integrate RFID inside the SIM card ? Or are you suggesting that SIM card should act like RFID ?  RFID tags contain electronically stored information and some tags are powered and read at short ranges (a few meters) via magnetic fields, I am not sure how we can mimic this using SIM card.

Great infographic. I've been a firm believer of RFID since I first heard of it, a "few" years ago. But technology has changed so fast, that I wonder if RFID is still considered a "new" technology, what's next? (or what's the hot topic nowadays?)

It is easy to see how RFID technology can be very useful. The thing to keep in mind is to use the technology properly and not allow users easy access to any sensitive information.

RFID no doubt is a good technology , but I was just wondering whether extending the role of mobile SIM cards would solve the same purpose.

RFID is a different animal and will require a whole set of tools and software to integrate it into the supply chain where as if we are able to extend the SIM card technology we have ready made technology, resources manpower and knowledge .

Just a thought!

It's amazing to see how such a simple technology like RFID is able to bring up radical changes in the supply chain. In practice, RFID is nothing more than a mechanism to store and communicate information. It has more to do with the way the systems have been designed to take advantage of this simple design and add so much value.
