Zebra Location Solutions offers an indoor Ethernet enabled WherePort IV exciter. The WherePort IV is used to indicate proximity by triggering a WhereTag IV asset tag to transmit a series of 24730-2 or Wi-Fi CCX blinks containing the unique ID associated with the WherePort IV. These WherePort blinks provide enhanced visibility as an asset passes through the WherePort IV field. This capability is typically used
to capture activity at critical points of work, such as entry/exit gates, shipping/receiving dock doors, repair depots, and final assembly. Points of work can be defined in the Real Time Locating System (RTLS)
software as two-dimensional zones. WherePorts enhance the system’s ability to track work-in-process even in areas where a full-locate RTLS reader density is not necessary.

The WherePort IV can also enable or disable an alternate blink mode in a WhereTag IV asset tag. The alternate blink mode is typically a faster blink rate for a fixed time period, which provides enhanced visibility
upon entry or exit of critical points of work. The WherePort IV signal field is nearly spherical and its range is configurable from approximately 0.5 m (1.5 ft) to 7 m (23 ft). The range setting is configurable with 32 possible settings. Multiple WherePort IV exciters can be interconnected to provide a larger coverage area. The WherePort IV exciter is sealed against dust and water, and meets NEMA 12 specifications. The WherePort IV is designed for fixed indoor applications, and may be installed in plenum space. The WherePort IV offers a more streamlined
appearance than the WherePort III due to its smaller form factor.
The WherePort IV exciter offers Ethernet connectivity for communications and configuration. It can also be configured with a WhereWand Configuration Tool. Power is provided to the WherePort IV by either an IEEE 802.3af compliant Power over Ethernet (PoE) network connection, or a discrete power jack for non-PoE applications. Ethernet connectivity with the WherePort IV is not required for normal operations.

Jaguar Land Rover Speeds Order-to-Cash Cycle
At Jaguar Land Rover, vehicles physically move around the facility for testing, configuration setting, rework and rectification, leading to a longer search time to get each vehicle to its next process facility. The main goal is to minimize the vehicles' dwell time between end of line and the delivery chain which was previously a manually intensive process. Jaguar Land Rover's goal was to build on the success of an earlier RFID project and improve the efficiency of delivering vehicles to meet dealer orders.
