Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a data-collection technology that uses electronic tags to store identification data and a no-line-of-sight requirement reader to capture the identification data.

RFID tags and readers communicate with each other through radio waves. A tag is a chip that has an antenna. Tags are active, which means that they are battery-powered, or passive, which means that they use the strength of the reader signal to be enabled. Information on the tag is reprogrammable in certain types.

The tag level in Microsoft Dynamics AX is item, case, or pallet.
