Zebra Technologies Updates the Link-OS Environment

The new environment offers advanced remote printer access and control.

Zebra Technologies Corp. has updated the Link-OS environment. This latest release from the Lincolnshire, Ill.-based company combines a new device operating system with a software development kit (SDK) and software applications, aimed at making Zebra printers easier to integrate, manage, and maintain. The Link-OS environment connects Zebra printers to the cloud and allows companies to access and manage them from desktop and handheld devices, including tablets and smartphones.

With Link-OS, users can remotely integrate, manage, and maintain Zebra’s family of next-generation printing devices through a single interface that supports interaction with multiple host, terminal, or smart device operating systems. End users can take advantage of the entire Link-OS environment or select just the apps they need.

Currently available for the iMZ220, iMZ320, QLn, and ZT200 series of Zebra printers, the features and apps for the Zebra Link-OS environment include Cloud Connect, which allows users to create new solutions and transition existing applications to cloud-based platforms. Selected Link-OS printers feature Print Touch Near Field Communication (NFC) tags, which automatically launch Web pages and apps on NFC-enabled mobile devices. The AirWatch Connector app, created through a Zebra-AirWatch partnership, enables the management of multiple Link-OS devices from a single console. The Multiplatform SDK exposes the core features of the Link-OS apps to developers.

Enhancements in the latest release of Link-OS include a Profile Manager, which uses a browser-based interface and runs from a centrally installed site to allow users to see and control Link-OS printers throughout their network. The app allows users to manage printers individually or as a group from PCs, tablets, and smartphones.

Also, the new printer-based Virtual Device app lets users switch between command languages and take advantage of the device management capabilities available in Link-OS-enabled printers. The Virtual Device family will be regularly updated, with additional apps being released through the remainder of 2013 and beyond.

Zebra plans to introduce additional Link-OS enhancements over time for greater functionality, as well as a broader range of compatible printers.
