IBM opened an RFID centre in Ireland late last month. This week, ZDNet UK toured the facility, which IBM claims will give local businesses hands-on access to technology to help them track assets from goods to employees.
The centre, in IBM's Dublin campus in Mulhuddart, is IBM's largest dedicated RFID facility worldwide. The company has another European facility in La Guade Centre in France and a total of ten similar sites worldwide.
IBM has around 1,400 people working on RFID worldwide and invested $250m (£140m) in the technology in 2005.
