Release 1

This version first released with ICT Information and Communications Technology Training Package Version 2.0.

Performance Evidence

Evidence of ability to:

  • plan installation
  • use basic research skills for adapting radio frequency identification (RFID) technologies to specified plan and design
  • implement and verify RFID operations
  • implement RFID architecture across a secure environment
  • encode RFID tags and attach to items
  • integrate RFID information into business applications
  • configure network with IP addressing
  • cable and test RFID network
  • create technical and user documentation.

Note: If a specific volume or frequency is not stated, then evidence must be provided at least once.

Knowledge Evidence

To complete the unit requirements safely and effectively, the individual must:

  • explain the client business domain, business function and organisation
  • describe common network cable types and connectors
  • summarise compatibility issues and resolution procedures
  • describe configuration of internet protocol (IP) networks
  • describe current industry-accepted hardware and software products used in RFID systems
  • explain desktop applications and operating systems as required
  • summarise enterprise communication and training systems in relation to training and advising staff involved in deployment
  • summarise network topologies
  • outline RFID technologies including:
  • network operating systems
  • protocols
  • interrogators and sensors
  • wireless technologies
