Convergence Systems has been awarded by ETI Consulting (ETIC), Jardine Engineering Corporation (JEC) and Shun Hing Systems Integration (SHSI) contracts to provide the latest RFID UHF Gen 2 RFID equipment to support ETIC's Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) Software for implementation of RFID in Hong Kong International Airport's (HKIA) Terminal 1. HKIA continues to be the industry leader in using RFID technologies to improve efficiencies and security in airport operations.
"We are extremely pleased to see Hong Kong companies have the technical depth and performance to meet the rigorous selection criteria of HKIA.

"HKIA prides itself on being devoted and innovative in meeting customer expectation through technology upgrade and process revamp. The use of RFID-enabled technology, which has greatly enhanced the reliability and efficiency of the baggage handling system, is another example of such commitments," said Ricky Leung, GM of Technical Services for Airport Authority Hong Kong.
"The CSL team is extremely honored that HKIA recognized that our CS461 4-port reader and matched antennas could handle the RF dense mode operating environment and the reliability demands of the Hong Kong airport," said Jerry Garrett, MD of Convergence Systems.
"JEC's aim is to utilize engineering, sourcing and project management best practices to deliver our products, services & projects which enable our customers, like HKIA, to operate their facilities to a world class standard. Working with ETIC on the RFID solution in HKIA's baggage handling system is a good example to demonstrate our full commitment and support to our customers," said Mr. C. K. Tam, GM of E&M Contracting for Jardine Engineering Corporation.
"ETIC's project management skills and commitment to rigorous sub systems testing makes seamless integration of the RFID system possible," said Mr. K.C. Ho, Manager of Project Department for Shun Hing Systems Integration.
