Zebra Introduces First XML-Enabled RFID Printer/Encoder

Tuesday 27 July 2004 21:35 CET | News

Zebra Technologies has launched its new R110Xi radio frequency identification (RFID) printer/encoder is now XML- enabled and ready to ship.

Zebra is the first company to develop and bring to market an Extensible Markup Language (XML)-enabled bar code and RFID smart label printing solution designed for companies using ERP, warehousing and supply chain/logistics software, such as those offered by Oracle and SAP. These software solution providers are developing XML-based platforms to support customers who must meet RFID compliance mandates or other business improvement initiatives. XML is increasingly being used to provide more flexible and adaptable information identification for the open exchange of data between applications, peripherals and trading partners. As a result, XML is quickly becoming the standard for business-to-business and application-to-application transactions, and is gaining use in EDI, ERP, and manufacturing systems. These applications are driving the need for a simple, flexible, efficient interface to on-demand printers. By adopting Zebras XML-enabled printers for enterprise and business process improvement applications, companies can take advantage of open standards, which can simplify and speed integration of on-demand bar code and RFID label printing, and eliminate or reduce costs for middleware, licensing, print server hardware, and maintenance fees. The XML-enabled R110Xi is the latest addition to Zebras currently available and expanding line of HF and EPC-compatible UHF printer/encoders. Zebra is the most recognized brand with the broadest range of bar code printers and RFID printer/encoders, supplies and connectivity software in the automatic identification industry.
