Redpine Signals, Inc. has released its Wi-Fi RTLS tags, which operate in the 5GHz band. Offering advanced features for enterprise and industrial markets, the WiseMote WM1-20 (2.4 GHz) and WM1-50 (2.4/5 GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi RTLS tag devices work with any third-party hardware and software RTLS infrastructure. Offering advanced Wi-Fi features including enterprise security and single stream 802.11n operation, the new tags are ideal for deployment in enterprise environments.

The devices can be programmed to operate in a variety of modes, supporting multiple location tracking and update mechanisms. In Cisco Compatible Extensions (CCX) mode, they offer Cisco CCX compliant beaconing with configurable patterns, telemetry and alarm notifications. In Wi-Fi associated mode, they periodically connect to access points and communicate sensor and channel data to a server. In other beaconing modes, the devices support standard Wi-Fi clients with simple tag identification software to locate and identify assets.

"Even a moderately busy channel can reduce the battery life of Wi-Fi devices. This can disrupt the deployment, management and maintenance planning of asset tracking and monitoring in an enterprise. Moving to the 5GHz band is not only for high throughput, QoS sensitive applications, but is also an important step for long battery life applications," said Venkat Mattela, CEO of Redpine Signals.

With the new tags, Redpine is also releasing the WM0 tag configurator and chokepoint device with low frequency excitation circuitry and an automated wireless configuration solution.
