Savi pushes the envelope for worldwide wireless

Savi Networks is on track in its quest to wire the shipping ports of the world, recently adding the Port of Rotterdam, Europe's largest and a gateway to more than 1,000 ports worldwide; three container terminals at the Port of Charleston, South Carolina, the fourth busiest U.S. eastern port; and Modern Terminals Limited facilities in Hong Kong.

Savi Networks is on track in its quest to wire the shipping ports of the world, recently adding the Port of Rotterdam, Europe's largest and a gateway to more than 1,000 ports worldwide; three container terminals at the Port of Charleston, South Carolina, the fourth busiest U.S. eastern port; and Modern Terminals Limited facilities in Hong Kong.

These locations are now part of a network of some 80 terminals worldwide served by Savi's global infrastructure for reading and processing RFID e-sealed shipping containers.

“Savi Networks is building a global network of wireless tracking systems that links into SaviTrak, a Web-based management information service,” says Mark Nelson, director of corporate communications. “It's much like a cell phone infrastructure, where we are providing the 'dial tone' for the service that is offered by the port and terminal managers to its shipping, transportation and logistics customers on a per transaction basis.”

The system is an open technology platform that is both reader- and tag-agnostic, capable of reading all types of wireless devices—including bar codes, RFID, and GPS signals.
