Two important anticipated updates coming in iOS 11 may spell the end for RFID technologies used for print
The roots of RFID technologies can be traced back to 1945 with the core commercial technology being developed in the 1970’s.
RFID For Print
For decades, print environments have leveraged employee issued RFID cards and 3rd party card readers as the mechanism to authenticate users to a printer/print station. When supporting print, this also necessitated expensive embedded firmware that could only run on an expensive MFP. This can easily add an additional $1,000+ over the cost of a printer just to support pull printing for a single MFP or printer.
