Big Data Gets the Right Signal for the Top RFID Manufacturer

Client Profile

Our client is a leading manufacturer of radio-frequency identification devices (RFID). It currently manufactures RFID readers, RFID antennas, RFID reader chips, and EPC Class 1 and Gen 2 passive UHF RFID chips. It also produces software that encodes chips and uses RFID systems to collect business intelligence.

Project Background and Needs

The client contracted with Everest Consultants to develop a Java library to retrieve location data, process the data to identify clustering analytics, and display analytics with clear, simple visuals. The client also tasked Everest with optimizing the library for larger data sets and improving performance.

Data is available via an existing RESTful query that will be executed when specified by the user. The User will be able to specify a Date range that is expected to include something in a one to six month or one-year interval. The JSON format output file will be made available on HDFS by using a RESTful query in Java program. The Java libraries will do post processing on the data, providing the processed output into a backend DB. This processed output is expected to be displayed in a visualization format.


Using a disciplined design approach, Everest Consultants created the required RESTful service to extract, transform, and load the data into HDFS and then developed reports based on the client’s requirements.
