IT Asset Tracking
with RFID

Automate the quality of service, security, and compliance are crucial to data center and enterprise IT Assets.

RFID systems are used in IT asset tracking for data centers and enterprises to automate the quality of service, security, and compliance that are crucial to their operations.

RFID technology enables automation in IT asset management, meaning less overhead and more margins for enterprises and cloud companies alike. On the other hand, IT vendors employ RFID source-tagging to move toward a Hardware-As-A-Service model, where they manage their own gear on behalf of their customers.

The Challenges Of IT Asset Tracking


IT Assets come in high-density configurations, in small and large sizes, which call for tracking and identification methods that can be automated, ie work in bulk, without having to pull the equipment out of the racks.

Data centers are metal-dense environments and RFID Systems require to be tuned to minimize cross reads and interferences.

Unique Identification

Traceability is a key feature, preferably enabled with serialized ID (TID) or custom encoding of User and EPC memories.

Machines and Humans

A best practice that requires printing and encoding on-site or at point-of-manufacture.

Where to Begin With An IT Asset Tracking Project?

An RFID IT asset tracking system is designed to manage a large variety of IT assets, devices, and equipment, throughout their life cycle.


IT assets come in high-density configurations which call for inventory methods that can be automated, work in bulk, and don’t require equipment to be pulled out of racks.


Data centers are metal-dense environments and RFID systems and tags require to be tuned to control stray reads and interferences.

Unique Identification

Asset traceability and compliance are key features enabled with serialized ID encoding.

Hybrid Information

Identification is encoded and printed to make it readable by both machines and people.


Handheld readers are best suited for flexible, on-the-spot, mobile checks, such as scanning a facility without having to remove any item, or identifying misplaced equipment.


Fixed readers can be adapted onto server cabinets to automate real-time visibility at the rack level.


Some IT Asset Management (ITAM) systems facilitate RFID integration by providing native support.


OEMs rely on customized tagging solutions that are embeddable in the hardware at point-of-manufacture to enable tracking features from cradle to grave.
