RFID Global Solution, Inc., a leading provider of RFID software and solutions to government organizations and Fortune 100 commercial companies, announced it was awarded a significant sub-contract from the Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) in direct support of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).  The contract enables CSC to provide automated, positive inventory control and management of rack mounted, server and network equipment within the secure DHS data center located at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.

DHS has had a standing requirement to improve its data center IT asset management automation.  The DHS solution will use passive RFID technologies to accurately track the location, exact rack and slot position, and movement of servers and other mission critical, IT network assets throughout its secure data center facility at Space Center, MS.

This solution, once implemented, will enable CSC support contractors at the DHS facility to reliably maintain over 99% inventory accuracy and visibility of all rack-mounted IT assets, as well as automatically monitor both intended and unintended movement of assets to assure the highest levels of physical data security are maintained.  The passive RFID solution designed by RFID Global Solution, Inc., is a cost effective and proven solution engineered to operate within the government’s most stringent requirements for data and information security, such as at DHS.

CSC’s goal is to deliver a secure, reliable, fully integrated, functional and cost-effective passive RFID capability to the Department of Homeland Security, which meets their exacting requirements for cost, reliability, performance and security.  “I have been very impressed with the capability and features of the passive RFID system, and the potential for increased inventory visibility of DHS owned IT assets”, said Wilson ‘Billy’ Bennett, Sr., CSC Project Manager.

RFID Global Solution, Inc., will provide its award-winning Visi-Trac™ software solution, which has been successfully deployed in numerous data centers for Fortune 100 clients.  RFID Global will also provide passive RFID infrastructure support services, including project management, solution design, installation, training and maintenance.

“Our Visi-Trac software solution for DHS provides a quantum leap forward in inventory visibility and automated control, enabling far more effective management of our nation’s critical data used to defend against terrorist threats”, stated Thomas Manzagol, Founder and COO, RFID Global Solution, Inc.
