RFID Glossary : Frequency Hopping

Frequency hopping is a technique used to keep two or more RFID readers from interfering with each other while reading RFID tags in the same area.

For example, UHF RFID readers in the United States are said to operate at 915 MHz. They actually operate between 902 and 928 MHz, jumping randomly (or in a predetermined sequence) to frequencies in between 902 and 928 MHz.

The chances of interference (of two readers attempting to interrogate the same tag) are small if the band of the reader is wide enough.
