University of Southern Philippines Foundation (USPF) inaugurated its University-developed Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) System Ver1.0. last Sept 23.

The USPF RFID system is the 1st University-developed RFID in the Visayas. The software is developed by ICT professionals composed of USPian alumni and employees: Mr. Archievald Ranay, senior programmer (BSIT class of 2014); Mr. John Andrie Pareja, junior programmer (BSIT class of 2014); Engr. Clark Tumanda, technical support group head; Engr. Benjamin de la Cerna III, network engineer; Mr. Nathaniel Cilocilo, technical support specialist (BSIT class of 2014); Mr. Nino Lane, helpdesk support staff; and, Mr. Lester Gastala, chief information officer and overall project manager for the 1st RFID In-House System Development of USPF.

For the hardware, USPF partners with GigaWorkz Technologies, the sole distributor of Russian-made PERCo turnstile and access control system for the RFID entrance. Aside from its energy-efficient detail with only 12 volts to power up, it follows the international standard which is dust-, water-, and weather-proof. USPF and GigaWorkz Technologies also tap Russia-Serbia for the uFR RFID reader.

The blessing of the new technology is officiated by USPian alumnus and SAS director Rev. Fr. Bernard Monteron, M.Afr. Ceremonial cutting of the ribbon is done by University president Dr. Alicia P. Cabatingan with the assistance of finance director Mrs. Rosalina Jereza Sepulveda and chief information officer Mr. Lester Gastala. Members of the USPF University Council were the first to try the RFID control system. /PR
