Impinj Updates Reader Software, Support Package

Impinj has announced a new version of its Enhanced Maintenance support and software bundle, and Speedway Connect 2.0, a new release of its software that runs on the Speedway Revolution and xPortal readers, to enable users to easily set a reader's configurations, simplify application integration and quickly access RFID tag data.

Enhanced Maintenance provides three years of priority returns support, access to software tools, and firmware upgrades for Impinj's Speedway, xArray and xPortal readers, the company reports. The level of support offered by Enhanced Maintenance ensures that Impinj's customers are able to efficiently resolve issues related to the maintenance of their RAIN RFID hardware, Impinj notes, and to receive accelerated delivery of new hardware if replacement becomes necessary.

Impinj's Speedway Connect 2.0
The Enhanced Maintenance bundle includes Octane firmware updates, licenses for Connect software (including the new Speedway Connect 2.0) and an IP license (when applicable), in order to ensure that customers have the latest Impinj hardware features. Benefits include access to the latest Impinj firmware upgrades, quick responses on preliminary hardware assessments, expedited replacement hardware shipping to minimize potential downtime, and Round Rock IP license requirement compliance (when applicable). Customers with eligible Impinj readers have the opportunity to enroll in Enhanced Maintenance from June 2 to Oct. 31, 2015.

The new Speedway Connect 2.0, which will be available for download at the end of this month, features a redesigned Web user interface that makes basic reader configuration easier, according to Impinj. It runs on the Speedway and xPortal readers, enabling users to easily set configurations for a single reader and quickly access RAIN RFID data via multiple protocols (HID, HTTP POST, TCP/IP, serial or USB). Speedway Connect 2.0 also now includes integrated help and expanded reader control settings.
