Cable authentication with RFID

With RFID technology Murata supports seamless communication.

Since data centers handle huge amounts of date, one mistake on a cable connection can cause huge trouble and loss.
RFID can prevent human error and improve the efficiency in cable management.

Difficulties in Cable Management Market

Please flick and have a look.
The problem when attaching cables is that the insertion location is difficult to understand at a glance. It takes time for wiring. If you make a mistake, it can lead to system shutdown or significant damage. History management is performed on handwritten documents and data manually entered by the operator on the terminal.

Advantages of RFID

Please flick and have a look.
When installing the cable, the app will inform you of the insertion location by reading the cable with your current handy reader / writer. Although development is required, it is also possible to notify the insertion location by turning on a LED light. If you make a mistake, you can also be warned by the content of the LED light. History management can be centrally managed by transferring data such as ID, type, insertion slot, and person in charge from the reader / writer.


  • By reading the tag attached to the cable, LEDs embedded in apps or servers can identify the mounting port.
  • By embedding the reader writer and LED in the server port, users can be notified when a cable is inserted in a wrong port.
  • With the embedded reader writer, it is possible to leave a record of insertion/removal.
  • When the cable is returned to the cable suppliers, it can be identified whether the cable is returned to the right supplier.
