What is RFID?

RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a small electronic device with a computer chip and an antenna used for wireless identification and tracking. The RFID device provides a unique identifier for each wristband or badge, similar to the barcode on a paper ticket. Just as the barcode must be scanned to get the ticket information, the RFID device on the wristband or badge must be scanned to retrieve the attendee information.
