FeatureEnabled ByBenefit
Ease of Use

Alien Reader Protocol or LLRP (coming)

Smart reader/autonomous mode

Alien Reader Control Architecture & Ruby

Power over Ethernet

Easy to set up and deploy

No additional costly controllers

Less maintenance and overhead

Industry leading PoE transmit power & power source agnostic

Under PoE power, outputs 31.5dBm – significantly more than other readers

Dynamically switches between power sources when power fails

No power supply expense or bulk

Uses standard PoE

Best read sensitivity when plenum/ceiling mounted

Increased reliability

Dynamically self-optimizing for best possible real-world performance
e.g. noisy or multi-reader environments

Dynamic “Smart-throttling” in adverse RF environments

Intelligent real-time Phase Cancellation

Maximizes the sensitivity and interference rejection in all environments

Other confidential techniques

Robust against significant tag collisions

Maintains optimal sensitivity even in highly reflective environments

More likely than competitors to read tags in high interference environments (other readers and RF sources)

Extensible and obsolescence proof

Reconfigurable RF subsystem – Enables RF performance upgrades



Firmware modernization

Enables virtually any amount of memory to be added

Add external peripherals including cellular, WiFi or BT
