Kathrein Honoured as Front Runner in RFID Technology

Kathrein has been honoured for its technological leadership in the field of RFID. Global consultancy Frost & Sullivan gave the Product Line Strategy Leadership Award to Kathrein for the outstanding added value that it offers to its customers. Particular tribute was paid to the fact that the company combines expertise in both RFID hardware and software.

Frost & Sullivan sees the identification of objects through the use of passive RFID as a key technology for the Internet of Things (IoT). The consulting firm explains in its justification for the award that Kathrein, as a solution and system provider in this field, is undisputed in the market. “Kathrein is very successful in reducing complexity for its customers and meeting their needs as best as possible,” said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Ram Ravi. This was also due to the acquisition of long-time software partner noFilis.

Frost & Sullivan found that Kathrein focuses on its customers’ individual requirements and is therefore first choice for renowned companies such as IBM, Daimler, VW, and Bosch for AutoID systems, and lauded Kathrein for continually improving its existing solutions.

“Kathrein is characterised by a rigorous and well-planned strategy that makes the company the leading provider of professional identification solutions in the field of ultra-high-frequency technology,” said Ravi. “No other brand was as well established in the market as Kathrein.”

“We are very proud of the prestigious award. It proves again that we provide the best RFID solutions,” said Jürgen Walter, Senior Vice President of Solutions at Kathrein. “We offer holistically designed IoT business solutions from a single source. Thanks to our know-how, our customers benefit from higher productivity and improved quality in processes, and, for this reason, from higher customer satisfaction.”
