Intel to Provide Equipment and Infrastructure Support

South Plainfield, New Jersey (July 5, 2005) — CAPE Systems Group, Inc., a leading provider of software technology for packaging design, pallet optimization, inventory and warehouse management, supply chain execution and order fulfilment, and Open Terra, a leading provider of wireless mobile platform technologies, today announced that they would be establishing a state of the art RFID Test and Integration Center at CAPE’s dedicated 15,000 square foot facility located in South Plainfield, New Jersey. CAPE is currently certified to provide Wal-Mart compliant RFID tagging solutions to its vendors

Intel Corporation will provide equipment and infrastructure support for the new RFID Center, including servers based on Intel® Itanium® 2 and 64-bit Intel® Xeon™ processors; Intel® Pentium® 4-based desktops; and notebooks built on Intel® Centrino™ mobile technology*. It is intended that the Center will provide full testing, evaluation and integration of the latest RFID technologies. The RFID Center will feature, among other things, a demo pavilion where leading providers of RFID-enabling technologies can be showcased.

“Through their membership in the Intel® Early Access Program, Open Terra and Cape Systems optimize their software to support PCs, servers, notebooks and handhelds based on our full-line of next-generation processors,” said Melissa Laird, general manager of Intel’s Developer Relations Division. “The RFID solution developed by Open Terra and Cape Systems integrates wireless technology, extended memory access and multithreading capabilities that are enabled by Intel® architecture.”

The rapidly emerging needs of the packaging, pharmaceutical, consumer packaged goods, postal and overnight package deliveries, and retail industries will be a particular focus. In this regard, the RFID Center is being located in the pharmaceutical capital of the world to make it more accessible to the particular needs of this industry. Tackling the problems of the pharmaceutical supply chain with cutting edge RFID technologies and services, in which increasing product tracking capabilities and accuracy and decreasing counterfeiting, will be a major initiatives of the RFID Center. The RFID Center is expected to be fully operational by late summer 2005.

Nicholas Toms, CAPE’s CEO, stated “As wireless technologies have become more pervasive across the supply chain, the benefits of using radio tags to manage movement of goods from the manufacturer to the customer have become widely understood. Now with a growing number of customers such as Wal-Mart, Gillette, Target, Albertsons, Tesco, Carrefours and the US Department of Defense mandating RFID tagging, their vendors are looking for immediate solutions to meet their expanding compliance requirements. Once adopted, users can then address the viability of using this technology to enhance their own internal operations. The CAPE RFID Center will enable customers to evaluate and test various proposed solutions to identify those that best suit their needs before investing capital.”

Ted Bielenda, CTO of Open Terra, stated, “We are delighted to be a part of this exciting development. By bringing together the leading providers of RFID enabling technologies, including our own mobility products, into one test and integration facility, we are creating a one-stop shop to evaluate and test various solutions to design the optimal solutions for our customers’ needs.”
