DNS will map RFID
: "The Auto-ID groups and now EPCglobal are in fact promoting the use of DNS as the means by which RFID tag identifiers are mapped to URIs that represent various sources of product data. Called the Object Name Service (ONS), the standard "...specifies how the Domain Name System is used to locate authoritative metadata and services associated with a given Electronic Product Code (EPC)."
Lest you think that it is a document only, with no momentum behind its implementation, Auto-ID / EPCglobal issued a request for proposals in the third quarter of 2003 for bids on the implementation and operation of the root network directory for the EPC Network being established by EPCglobal. The contract has reportedly been awarded to Verisign." 10:07:32 AM
