42Gears MDM Expands Zebra Technologies’ Printer and RFID Device Management
Fremont, CA, January 10, 2023: 42Gears, a Zebra PartnerConnect Independent Software Vendor, announced that SureMDM, its Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solution, now supports Zebra Link-OS printers and RFID devices. 42Gears had successfully completed Zebra Technologies’ Validated Program for its flagship product SureMDM in 2020, during which the product’s interoperability with select Zebra mobile computers was validated.
“It’s not just smart or rugged devices that businesses use. They need a host of other devices for business operations, and it’s equally important for organizations to be able to manage and secure them. That was the idea behind creating a technology that could help manage devices that do not run a traditional operating system, such as printers. We are a longstanding Zebra-partner, and are excited to be able to help customers manage Zebra printers and RFID devices in the easiest way possible,” said Prakash Gupta, co-founder and COO of 42Gears.
SureMDM is a cost-effective device management solution that helps front-line workers and IT administrators using Zebra Link-OS printers and Zebra FX7500 and FX9600 fixed RFID readers with firmware version 3.10 and above to stay productive at their workplaces.
With the latest updates, SureMDM users (IT Admins) can:
- Manage the complete device lifecycle management for Zebra printers and RFID devices, starting from provisioning and deploying to supporting firmware updates and remotely monitoring the devices in real-time.
- Get device insights such as network information, memory details, and also create compliance rules for the devices.
- Remotely send Zebra Programming Language (ZPL) commands, transfer files to printers, and get device information such as battery status, print speed, and firmware version, etc.
- Get insights on Zebra’s RFID device information such as temperature, antenna status, and RFID connection status with just a few clicks.
Both Zebra printers and RFID devices can integrate seamlessly with existing business infrastructure.
