The i-LINKS™ software suite consists of:

Central Server Site Agent Tags

Site Agent Central Server

The Site Agent handles local data collection between the RFID reader and the tags. It controls RF communication parameters. The Central Server is responsible for collecting and storing data from all Site Agents. This application is also scalable – i.e. multiple Central Servers can collect and send data to a Master Central Server.

i-LINKS page 2 Site Agent Specifications: Operating system………………………………… Windows CE/9x/2000/NT Data protocol……………………………………………………………Open-System Design principle………………………………………………………………………OOD RFID tag interface ……………………………………… Active, Passive, Mix Data transmission…………………………… UDP, RF, TCP/IP, Wireless

Key Benefits Easy to use for locating and tracking different types of assets/inventory. By using scripts, RF communications can be either event-driven or host-driven for optimal flexibility. Easily customized for either directional tracking or proximity tracking. Performs verification during data read/write operations for optimal reliability. Intelligent tag recognition minimizes RF during read/write operations. Built-in backup uses data storage buffer to allow off-line execution.

Central Server Specifications: Operating system………………………………………… Windows NT/2000 Stored procedures………………………………………………………… Optional ODBC-supported…………………………………………………………………… Yes Database size………………………………………………………………… Dynamic Databases supported…………………… Oracle, SQL-Server, ACCESS MySQL(Q4 01), Sybase (Q1 02)

Key Benefits Bi-directional communication to Site Agent automates asset-management decisions by providing real-time situational awareness. Data can be integrated to Enterprise Systems using SQL and ODBC. Software is scalable and expandable – can collect data from other RF technologies and other Central Server modules.

Summary Software is built using an open-system foundation so it can be used to read data from other technologies (passive RFID, barcode, etc.). Software is modular so technology can be expanded gradually into different business areas using a phased approach. Data can be sent to any ODBC-based application, i.e. ERP, etc.
