Zebra Partnership Combines Capabilities

Zebra Technologies Corporation and Checkpoint Systems entered into a cooperative relationship and licensing agreement. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed. This relationship brings together Zebra's active location solutions with the passive radio-frequency identification (RFID), auto-identification (auto-ID) and sensor capabilities of Checkpoint division OATSystems to give customers in key industries--including retail, industrial manufacturing, automotive, aerospace and process--increased visibility of their assets across the enterprise.
The agreement, which is a non-exclusive contract, provides Zebra with an OEM software license for OATxpress(TM), which is part of the most widely deployed RFID middleware platform, OAT Foundation Suite(TM). This industry-leading software platform is designed specifically for capturing, filtering and managing high volumes of auto-ID and sensor data from a single facility--such as a manufacturing plant, distribution center or retail store--to an enterprise deployment across hundreds of locations.
In the coming months, Zebra will announce details around its first product with the capability to implement applications that combine both active and passive RFID. The OAT Foundation Suite will provide support for a broad range of auto-ID technologies in a scalable framework, making it easy to add more device types and technologies to the platform in future phases.
