AeroScout Enhances Industry’s Leading Wi-Fi-Based Active RFID Tag
SAN MATEO, California, August 21 /PRNewswire/ –
Innovative and Enhanced Capabilities Extend AeroScout Leadership in Healthcare, Manufacturing and Other Industries
AeroScout, Inc., the leading provider of Wi-Fi-based Active RFID visibility solutions, today announced several enhanced features and capabilities for its AeroScout T2 Tag which are unique and unparalleled in the market. The T2 tag is the industry’s leading Wi-Fi-based Active RFID tag for asset tracking and management, with tens of thousands of units being shipped each month to customers around the globe.
New features on the AeroScout T2 Tag include a built-in temperature monitor and motion sensor, for unmatched asset management capabilities. The motion sensor provides transmission control based on movement of the tag, improving real-time location accuracy and enabling a 4+ year battery life in most customer environments. The temperature sensor provides an additional stream of asset management data for environment-sensitive assets, enabling the tag to wirelessly trigger a remote alert if the temperature goes above or below a certain threshold. In addition, advanced call button and LED functions, intrinsically safe and electromagnetic certifications on the tag, and extendable battery life (up to 8 years) all enable customers to further enhance their asset management capabilities.
“These new features not only demonstrate how AeroScout continues to deliver trusted location based services solutions to the healthcare market, but also extend the Wi-Fi-based Active RFID capabilities currently available in the Cisco Clinical Connection Suite,” said Kent Gray, Healthcare Industry Solutions Manager, Cisco Systems, Inc. “The new tag functionality is particularly attractive to our hospital customers because extended battery life and advanced security are critical for effective asset management and loss prevention.”
T2 Tag Continues to Lead Wi-Fi-based Active RFID Market
AeroScout introduced the industry’s first Wi-Fi-based Active RFID tag over 3 years ago, and its tags continue to lead the market in advanced features, long battery life, and attractive form factor. Customers in healthcare, manufacturing and other industries use the T2 Tag along with their standard wireless networking infrastructure to track high-value assets and people at a low total cost of ownership. The T2 Tag, together with AeroScout’s MobileView application software and other products, provides a complete solution for improving business processes through accurate, real-time location.
AeroScout currently ships tens of thousands of T2 tags to customers each month, and has already deployed the tags in more than 150 customer sites worldwide. For example, numerous hospitals including Catholic Medical Center – KangNam St. Mary’s Hospital in South Korea use the tags to track patients through their diagnostic process; mining giant Inco uses the tags to improve production within a Canadian mine, Holmgrens auto distributor in Sweden uses the tags to provide superior service by monitoring vehicles on their lot; and various semiconductor and aerospace manufacturing facilities use the tags to track high-value tools and inventory.
