Discovery Configuration and Initialization (DCI)

This GS1 EPCglobal standard specifies an interface between RFID Readers and Access Controllers and the network on which they operate. The purpose of this document is to specify the necessary and optional operations of a Reader and Client that allow them to utilize the network to which they are connected to communicate with other devices, exchange configuration information, and initialize the operation of each Reader, so that the Reader Operations Protocols can be used to control the operation of the Readers to provide tag and other information to the Client. To facilitate these operations by the Reader, an Access Controller provides several functions, described below.
