Ekahau is the first company to go to market with a tag that utilizes the “System-on-a-Chip” (SoC) from G2 Microsystems Inc. The SoC is an ultra low-power solution that is designed for active RFID and RTLS applications. As a result of a very high integration level, the G2 Microsystems’ chip significantly increases the battery life and reduces the cost of a Wi-Fi based RTLS tag.

The T301-A Wi-Fi tag is about the size of a box of wooden matches, weighing less than 2 ounces (50 grams) and measuring 1.8 x 2.2 x 0.7 inches (44 x 55 x 19 millimeters). This small form factor allows the tag to attach to tracked equipment either temporarily or permanently – including small or oddly shaped items – using double-sided tape, cable ties, straps and other mechanisms depending on the application. For persons needing to be tracked, the tag can be carried in a pocket or worn on a wristband.

A water- and dust-proof enclosure allows the tag to be used in various environments, including outdoors and indoors under dusty or wet conditions, such as factories or mines. Ekahau expects to begin limited shipments of the new tag to existing customers in June, with general availability through Ekahau and its authorized resellers worldwide beginning in September. The U.S. list price for the T301-A will start at $50, with quantity discounts.
