Ethernet-based communication between RFID readers and other parts of an access control system solution is a growing demand from the market. The use of TCP/IP based communication is part of the interface range available in the TagMaster Gen4 LR and XT-series long-range RFID readers.
To ensure secure communication over Ethernet TagMaster has introduced HTTPS which is now available in the LR and XT-series readers. HTTPS provides encrypted communication via TCP/IP using a robust and secure methodology that has been recognised in the market.
This new functionality in the readers adds to the already existing security related features available in all TagMaster Gen4 readers. Other security related functionality is a multilevel password protection used to ensure controlled access to the configuration settings of the reader.
Other important security related functionality in the TagMaster product line is the protection against duplication of ID tags. SecureMarkID is used to protect EPC Gen2 tags devliered by TagMaster from being duplicated. The TagMaster LR-series ID tags use a proprietary eight-digit unique code with built-in 32-bit error detection to ensure a correct read and to prohibit duplication.

General Sistemi installs vehicle access control installation at a court in Italy
General Sistemi in Italy has recently installed a vehicle access control installation at a court in central Italy. The installation ensures a high level of security and reliability using an integrated combination of long-range RFID identification and OCR cameras.
RFID tags are used in the majority of the vehicles which are regular visitors, providing highly secure vehicle identification. For the control of certain visitors and other vehicles not equipped with an RFID tag, the integrated OCR camera is used. The camera is an integrated part of the Total Gate Control access control solution developed and supplied by Generale Sistemi. The system uses a TCP/IP based solution and a built-in database that is used for all the RFID and OCR identities.
The Total Gate Control system is a complete web configured access control solution that includes the administration of identities, scheduling and access rights. TGC runs as a standalone solution communicating over TCP/IP and is based on one of the TagMaster Gen4 reader platforms.
