Identiv, Inc. announced that it has partnered with NXP Semiconductors N.V. to provide badges to all 170,000+ attendees at CES 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, January 5 – 8. CES is the world’s premier technology innovation event. Identiv and NXP are offering CES visitors the ultimate smart event experience.
Identiv partnered with NXP to deliver radio frequency identification (RFID) inlays, individually inserted into each 2017 CES attendee badge. Identiv’s high-end high-quality inlay is designed exclusively for NXP’s MIFARE DESFire EV2 state-of-the-art platform. During the registration process, unique data is loaded using Identiv’s RFID platform, enabling CES attendees to quickly and securely share contact details. Identiv delivers superior performance, increased security and privacy, and enhanced application support, offering a true touch-and-go experience.
Attendees can use their badge to get into events, ride the Las Vegas Monorail, and access bike-sharing services. The multi-application badge simplifies transportation at CES, improving attendees’ experience while demonstrating how Identiv and NXP technology connects people to a broad array of services and transportation options.
Consisting of an antenna and a contactless-enabled microchip, inlays are the actual data carriers in an RFID system. Identiv is a leading provider of RFID inlays with a wide variety of designs integrating various materials, chip technologies, and frequencies for metal and non-metal environments.
“Together with NXP, we are bringing fast, reliable, and safe access and transportation to all attendees during the world’s largest technology show,” said Roger Hornstra, Identiv VP of Transponders Sales. “We are also providing a glimpse into the future of smart transportation to over 170,000 CES attendees, representing 80% of the world’s countries.”
