Folding Cartons: A folding carton is made of paperboard, and is cut, folded, and printed for transport to manufacturers. The cartons are shipped flat to a manufacturer, which fold the carton into its final shape as a container for a product. The classic example of such a carton is a cereal or toothpaste box.
Mass Serialization: is the process that manufacturers go through to assign and mark each of their products with a Unique identifier such as an Electronic Product Code (EPC). The marking or "tagging" of products is usually done in the manufacturing process through the use of various combinations of human readable and/or machine readable technologies such as DataMatrix barcodes or RFID. Mass Serialization is done to enable many valuable traceability use cases mentioned in Track & Trace.
QR code: (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g. binary, alphanumeric, or Kanji symbols). QR codes are effective due to their fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity
RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification): is a technology that uses radio waves to transfer data from an electronic tag, called RFID tag or label, attached to an object, through a reader for the purpose of identifying and tracking the object. Some RFID tags can be read from several meters away and beyond the line of sight of the reader.
Smart Card: Any pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits – containing volatile memory. These cards also provide strong security authentication for single sign-on (SSO) within large organizations.
