RAIN RFID Delivers Data Center Asset Management When Accuracy is Paramount

vXchnge has fourteen data centers throughout the US and each location provides infrastructure for critical business systems. They needed to automate how their assets were tracked and managed while maintaining their reputation for exceptional security and reliability. With thousands of pieces of hardware, knowing asset location in real time was essential to their success.

Impinj and Asset Vue created a RAIN RFID asset management solution for vXchnge that was both easy to deploy and highly effective. Here’s how it works:

  • RAIN RFID tag-chips are affixed to each asset at a data center
  • Assets are read within each cabinet at each data center by Impinj Speedway R420 readers located throughout the site
  • Asset data is sent to vXchnge's business intelligence tool for support staff to view

With data on asset location in real-time, vXchnge was able to deliver faster, more accurate service.
