SAMSys hardware now available for integration with NCR’s end-to-end RFID solutions

February 28, 2006, ATLANTA – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) and SAMSys Technologies Inc. (SMY: TSX), a leading provider of radio frequency identification (RFID) hardware, today announced a reseller agreement allowing SAMSys’ fixed and embedded multiprotocol and multiregional ultrahigh frequency (UHF) readers and associated products to be deployed as integrated components of the NCR TransitionWorks™ RFID solutions portfolio.

These reader modules function with all EPC-compliant tags, including Class 0, 0+, Class 1, ISO, and Gen 2, and comply with U.S., European and Asian frequency requirements.

Additionally, the agreement enables NCR to resell other SAMSys products including high-frequency and low-frequency readers, antennas, and turnkey UHF portal systems designed for dock doors.

“SAMSys has a decade of experience in developing RFID hardware capabilities in the United States and other countries, and they have a product road map that corresponds to our strategy for the RFID marketplace,” said NCR Vice President for Global RFID Solutions John Greaves. “This alliance is part of NCR’s strategy to align itself with industry-leading providers and serve as a one-stop shop for businesses seeking to improve critical business processes through the use of RFID.”
