Project Title: Establishing an EPC Network Infrastructure to Enable End-to-End Supply Chain Visibility
Abstract: EPCglobal's vision to create an "Internet of Things" has induced the EPC/RFID tidal wave that has swept through supply chain industries across the globe. Supply chain visibility has become the core expectation from world's key players in the EPC/RFID field.

With support from Wal*Mart Corporation and Target Corporation, the largest driving force behind EPC, EPCglobal HK proposes the world's first initiative to pioneer the EPC Network Infrastructure with focused priority to achieve end-to-end supply chain visibility between the world's largest buying power and the largest manufacturing base - China.

The project aims to create the global reference model for EPC/RFID implementation in the following context:
- Technical development: to enable end-to-end supply chain visibility with an integration- friendly EPC Network Infrastructure;
- Commercial development: to ensure industry relevance of the technical development, and to create commercial show case and hence value proposition for EPC/RFID implementation
- Market development: to proliferate industry learning and buy-in, and to disseminate the technical and commercial developments as the global reference model, thus to enhance competitive edge of Pan PRD in the process of global supply chain integration.

Under management of EPCglobal HK, the project implementation shall be fully aligned with global EPC standard development. The project result shall be recommended to EPCglobal, and contribute back to the global development of EPC standards.
