Sirit Announces Microsoft BizTalk Server Compatibility



    BizTalk Server 2006 R2 Provides Native Support for Sirit's INfinity 510
    RFID Reader

    TORONTO, Sept. 10 /CNW/ - Sirit Inc. ("Sirit") (TSX: SI), a leading
provider of radio frequency identification ("RFID") solutions, announced today
that a device provider for their INfinity 510 RFID readers will be available
for Microsoft BizTalk Server 2006 R2. This facilitates fast and simple
integration of Sirit readers into RFID implementations using BizTalk Server
2006 R2.
    Sirit, a Microsoft Certified Partner, ensures the device provider
supports integration between the INfinity 510 and BizTalk Server 2006 R2. This
device provider within BizTalk Server is similar to a software driver in
Microsoft's operating systems, as is the case with printers, scanners and
other peripherals.
    "With the launch of BizTalk Server 2006 R2, Microsoft Corp. provides an
important catalyst for the mass adoption of RFID, further enabling a
'connected enterprise.' We are excited about the release of BizTalk Server
2006 R2 and are pleased to be one of the first RFID reader companies to
provide this compatibility," said Tony Sabetti, vice president of RF Solutions
for Sirit. "As part of our strategic relationship with Microsoft, we worked
closely with the BizTalk Server team to make certain our readers were
compatible."
    "In order for customers to take advantage of RFID technology today, it's
critical that they have access to devices that are compatible with
infrastructure technologies such as BizTalk Server 2006 R2," said Steven
Martin, director of the Connected Systems Division at Microsoft. "We are
pleased to have the INfinity 510 as a supported device within BizTalk Server
2006 R2."
    The INfinity 510 has received accolades for its outstanding performance
such as the top-rated RFID reader in the recent ODIN technologies European
Reader Benchmark Test report. Sirit's INfinity 510 was the top performer among
seven readers tested, placing first or second in six of the seven test
categories. In addition, METRO Group, the largest retailer in Germany,
performed extensive reader testing and selected the INfinity 510 as their
primary reader for its RFID implementation at REAL hypermarket stores across
Germany.
    "The INfinity 510 offers a broad portfolio of configuration and
enterprise management tools that changes the paradigm of RFID system
installation and management," stated Sabetti. "A wide array of diagnostic and
statistical reporting tools, user-configurable alarms, and a host of
management features are available. When you combine the built-in flexibility
of the INfinity 510 with the integration BizTalk Server provides, a powerful,
easy-to-integrate solution emerges."
    In addition to the work on BizTalk Server 2006 R2, Sirit is taking
advantage of Microsoft development tools across a wide range of RFID and
contactless payment applications. As a Microsoft Certified Partner, Sirit has
developed a unique electronic toll and traffic management for California State
Route 91, the first open road tolling system that uses Microsoft Windows as
the core operating system for all lane activities. Sirit is also participating
in Microsoft's current initiatives in Near Field Communications (NFC) which
enables innovative new applications of wireless peripherals and other mass
market electronic devices.
