Information About Configuring RFID Tag Tracking
The Controller enables you to configure radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag tracking. RFID tags are small wireless devices that are affixed to assets for real-time location tracking. They operate by advertising their location using special 802.11 packets, which are processed by access points, the controller, and the location appliance.
How to Configure RFID Tag Tracking
Configuring RFID Tag Tracking (CLI)
1.location rfid status
no location rfid status
3.location rfid timeoutseconds
4.location rfid mobility vendor-namename
5.(Optional) no location rfid mobilityname
Command or Action
location rfid status
Controller(config)# location rfid status
Enables RFID tag tracking.
By default, RFID tag tracking is enabled.
no location rfid status
Controller(config)# no location rfid status
Disables RFID tag tracking.
location rfid timeoutseconds
Controller(config)# location rfid timeout 1500
Specifies a static timeout value (between 60 and 7200 seconds).
The static timeout value is the amount of time that the controller maintains tags before expiring them. For example, if a tag is configured to beacon every 30 seconds, we recommend that you set the timeout value to 90 seconds (approximately three times the beacon value). The default value is 1200 seconds.
location rfid mobility vendor-namename
Controller(config)# location rfid mobility vendor-name Aerosct
Enables RFID tag mobility for specific tags. When you enter the location rfid mobility vendor-name command, tags are unable to obtain a DHCP address for client mode when attempting to select and/or download a configuration.
These commands can be used only for Pango tags. Therefore, the only valid entry for vendor_name is “pango” in all lowercase letters.
(Optional) no location rfid mobilityname
Controller(config)# no location rfid mobility test
Disables RFID tag mobility for specific tags. When you enter the no location rfid mobility command , tags can obtain a DHCP address. If a tag roams from one subnet to another, it obtains a new address rather than retaining the anchor state.
