IPICO is owned by Active Network, LLC.
IPICO Inc. is an RFID solution supplier producing tags, readers and transponders based on the IP-X RFID Air-interface Communication Protocol. This protocol was developed to overcome the limitations faced by conventional Reader-Talk-First (RTF) protocols. In addition, their patented Dual Frequency technology eliminates signal loss and tad read collision:
- Low frequency signal is used for energising the tags
- High frequency signal is used for communication from tag to reader
This works especially well for the human body, so the company has re-branded itself as IPICO Sports. Their product portfolio includes readers, tags for shoes and bibs, and antennae mats.
