Description: The OAT Foundation Suite is a collection of modules that functions as a middleware platform that provides two-way process integration between enterprise applications and real-time information from Auto-Identification (ID), Wi-Fi, Real-Time Location System (RTLS) and Global Positioning System (GPS) inputs. This solution captures and normalizes large volumes of sensor data, adding business context and consistency logic for enterprise applications. This provides a record of process steps, asset and inventory movements for supply chains, manufacturing and service operations.

This technology stores Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag and location information in a relational database. Supported database technologies include Microsoft Structured Query Language (SQL) Server and Oracle Database. The technology makes Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) calls to store data in the database. Data is not encrypted, except for user passwords.

Please note that while this technology is called a Suite, the components are bundled together and need to run in conjunction with one another.

There is no dedicated webpage for this technology.
