For those of you who are new to the world of RFID and rugged handheld computing, welcome. We hope this post serves as a guide to help you better understand which information collection option best suits the needs of your project. A common question often answered here at Juniper is, “Which RFID frequency should I use?” We want to make sure you’re getting the tools you need, without overpaying for features that won’t be useful in your situation. Because identification readers are used in so many different cases, it’s hard to identify a customer’s exact needs without speaking to them directly. However, we hope these questions serve as a starting point to launch you in the right direction and prepare you to ask the right questions when determining the best option for your project.

Juniper Systems established a partnership with Industrial Networks this month after an extensive, collaborative effort in integrating ATA/AEI long-range UHF RFID tag readers into the Mesa 2 Rugged Tablet. As the only existing solution of its kind, it will serve as a complete identification and tracking system for the railroad industry, as well as other industries requiring long-range UHF RFID tag reading.
Industrial Networks President Jimmy Finster contacted Juniper Systems seeking a sleek and innovative option that included a solid rugged handheld with ATA reading capabilities and an all-day battery life and the Mesa 2 jumped at the opportunity. What a showoff.
For those unfamiliar with our latest rugged tablet, The Mesa 2 with ATA UHF RFID runs on a complete Windows 10 operating system, allowing users to operate the rugged tablet as a full desktop computer. Its Class 1, Div II classification ensures it’s built to be used in hazardous locations, while its IP68 rating provides the highest-rated protection against water and dust.
The current standard solution for tracking and identification systems in the railroad industry is a Windows Mobile handheld with an external RFID antenna. With an increased battery life and Windows 10 capability, Industrial Networks was pleased to look into this product, as new solution able to fit the high demands of the railroad industry.
Here at Juniper we’re excited about both the product we’ve created and a long-term partnership with Industrial Networks.

From those who are new to the world of RFID and rugged handheld computing, one of the most common questions I hear is “Which RFID frequency should I use: HF or UHF?” In this post, I’d like to help make this decision process a little bit easier. There are lots of different applications that use both HF (high frequency) and UHF (ultra-high frequency) RFID. And, like most options we have to choose between, each frequency has different pros and cons, so it really depends on what’s important for your specific application. Continue Reading…
Have you ever tasted two things that just went perfectly together? I mean, they taste delicious on their own, but together, they forge some sort of new and exciting synergy that just downright tickles the tastebuds? This happened to me once. I had these extraordinarily sweet, ripe strawberries (I think they may have been a close relative of the Forbidden Fruit) and I ate them with a gourmet goat milk gouda cheese. You know, the smooth, velvety kind? And ohhh myyy… Simply stated, something amazing happened.
