Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Global Tag Srl!

It was born 5 years ago with the purpose to meet the international market needs about #RFID and #NFC tag transponders, today we can say to have token  a way that has allowed us to cooperate with important companies, to improve the technological vision, to train us for a future full of  important challenges.
In these 5 years we made our product range bigger and bigger, we have introduced the BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy – iBeacon) technology, reaching customers in more than 20 different countries all around the world.

A special thanks  is dedicated to all our partners and all the people who believed in us.
We need to thanks the difficulties, because they allowed us to improve ourselves, and even more the successes, because they  made us realized workers and they allowed ud to work with more and more optimism.

“The future is the door, the past is the key”

Discover our new BLE Watchcase Beacony !

Given the versatility of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology, Global Tag has token the decision to develop a new tag, especially designed for people traceability,  launching the new product BLE Watchcase Beacony.
It is a tag designed as a BLE wristband, that complies with Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 standard.
Thanks to the possibility to divide the watchstrap by the case, we can supply the BLE watch with different watchstrap options, in order to improve the usability of the product, making it flexible  to the needs of the customer that could prefer, for example, a disposable tag for an health application (ex. nursing homes for the elderly and hospitals), rather than a reusable  silicone watchstrap, ideal for access control and job security applications.

BLE Watchcase Beacony watchstrap

BLE Watchcase Beacony is available with different color watchstraps and covers, according to customer preferences, and it’s compatible with multimedia platforms  Eddystone and  i-Beacon.
The  tag has a replaceable battery, that can survive up to one year, according to the used  ping rate (depending on the requirements).

Besides, it has high performances and, in optimal conditions, it reaches long distance communications, up to 50 meters.

NFC and ISO15693: Let’s be clear!

Everybody knows that NFC technology (Near Field Communication), developed for the implementation of projects  based on the reading of  the tag through last generation smartphone devices, works with HF 13,56 MHz, and particularly, it satisfies all requirements to belong to  ISO 14443 standard.

However, in October 2015 , NFC Forum (the institution that has the purpose to standardize and regulate the implementation of NFC technology) officially established  the parameters for the memorization of information inside ISO15693  chips; this operation is called “Type 5 Tag Operation Specification” .This choice pursues the aim to allow to read ISO15693 and ISO14443  tag through mobile devices (as smartphones) without limiting the user choice about the use of the chip.

Concretely, the intention is to develop a technology called NFC-V, that would allow to NFC readers to communicate also with tags belonging to ISO15693 standard; this fact would imply a reduction of the reading distance (few centimeters reading distance, as NFC 14443 tags) and an improvement of the tag-device communication speed.
Anyway, the situation is still evolving because currently there’s no rule that forces the smartphones NFC chip manufacturer to integrate the Type 5, limiting the obligation to Type 1, Type 2, Type 3 and Type 4.

At the moment, there are many smartphone devices that are capable to read ISO 15693 tags, but this condition is not regulated , therefore the choice to allow the ISO15693 reading is up to the smartphone manufacturer: this situation, obviously, doesn’t  guarantee the needed stability that would permit to customers to develop NFC projects using ISO15693 tags with the certainty that the project could be durable and sustainable. Therefore, our suggestion is that to use  ISO14443 (NFC compliant) chips; the use of ISO15693 chips must be limited to some project in which the use of smarthone device is a mere integration of a system that involves the using also, and especially, of fixed devices with reading distance exceeding 10 cm.
