Online PR News – 11-March-2013 –Xerafy, Ltd, a global supplier of RFID metal tags, is aware of the patent allegations made against the company by Omni-ID. Xerafy is currently reviewing the allegations and will not comment on the merits of the complaint.
"Xerafy respects the intellectual property of all companies, including its competitors. Xerafy has very broad patent protection itself, and therefore we take any allegations of infringement very seriously," said Xerafy founder and CEO Dennis Khoo. "We are very confident in our intellectual property position."
Xerafy’s broad patent protection for its product line arises from its 15 issued and more than 15 additional pending patents. Xerafy also manufactures products that conform to ISO, GS1, Air Transport Association and other international standards.
"Patent disputes are common in growth technology markets. We are not surprised by Omni-ID’s actions, but we are disappointed," Khoo said. "There have been aggressive patent litigation and licensing programs in the automated data collection industry before, and they have rarely if ever been beneficial for customers. Success in the market won’t come from the courtroom, but will come from focusing on meeting the needs of customers."
Xerafy’s innovations have changed the price-performance ratio for RFID tags and made it possible for customers to track assets in a wide range of harsh environments. Xerafy provides read-on-metal tags that can be embedded directly into assets to meet a full range of needs for RFID asset tracking in the aerospace, industrial, data center, healthcare, energy and other industries. Xerafy is headquartered in Hong Kong and maintains U.S. sales and support offices in San Jose, Dallas and Minneapolis, and additional offices in the U.K. and China.
