Omnitrol Networks, a provider of application network platforms, has entered into a strategic relationship with BT Global Services, a provider of networked IT services.
According to Omnitrol Networks, the collaboration is expected to enable BT supply chain services to deliver enhanced and scalable supply-chain, asset and operational visibility services utilising next-generation radio frequency identification (RFID), wireless and sensor technologies based on the Omnitrol Networks platform.
