Interactive Sensor Technology
This section describes the functionality of the Interactive Sensor Technology (IST) feature on the MC9500-K.
The IST supports the following features.
• Power Management – manage power by configuring IST to control switching on/off the backlight, control
suspend mode of the MC9500-K by monitoring motion and orientation.
• Display Orientation – switch the screen orientation to either landscape or portrait depending on the
MC9500-K orientation.
• Free Fall Detection – monitors free fall duration and records the time and type of the drop event.
Power Management
The MC9500-K orientation and motion sensitive data can be used as an indicator of MC9500-K usage and can be
used to manage the battery power of the mobile computer. For example, IST can be configured to control the
backlight on and off functionality or go into suspend according to a user gesture by placing screen facing down. It
can also be used to keep the MC9500-K active while it is in movement to prevent it from quickly going into suspend
mode while in use.
Display Orientation
The screen can be rotated between portrait and landscape modes automatically, depending on the physical
orientation of the MC9500-K. For example, if the MC9500-K is rotated 90° counterclockwise, IST rotates the
display counterclockwise 90° so that the screen display appears correct.
This functionality is achieved by monitoring screen angle and rotating the display to counter any changes. IST only
rotates the screen in multiples of 90°.
Figure 3-9 Display Orientation
3 - 10 MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
Free Fall Detection
IST continuously monitors gravitational force on the MC9500-K according to its current position. When the
MC9500-K free falls, IST detects the absence of gravitational force and records the event data if it detects a free
fall more than 450 ms, which may indicates nearly a one meter drop. This data can be used as an indicator of
potential abuse or misuse.
IST features a log for recording the free fall events. This log records the date, time and the time period of the free
fall.

Main Battery Temperature Notifications
The temperature notification system implements three levels of notification when the temperature within the battery
exceeds specific temperature thresholds:
• Level 1: Temperature Watch; this level is similar to main battery low warning. It indicates that the battery
temperature has reached the first threshold level. The user should move to an environment within proper
operating temperature.
• Level 2: Temperature Warning; this level is similar to main battery very low warning. It indicates the battery
temperature has reached the second threshold level. The user should stop using the MC9500-K.

Chapter 4 Data Capture
Introduction
The MC9500-K offers three types of data capture options:
• Laser scanning
• Imaging
• Color digital camera.
NOTE
To read a bar code, a scanning enabled application must be installed on the MC9500-K. A sample scanning
application can be downloaded from the Motorola Support Central site at
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/support.
Laser Scanning
An MC9500-K with an integrated linear laser scanner has the following features:
• Reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular 1-D code types.
• Intuitive aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
Scanning Considerations
Typically, scanning is a simple matter of aim, scan, and decode and a few quick trial efforts master it. However,
consider the following to optimize scanning performance:
• Range
Any scanning device decodes well over a particular working range — minimum and maximum distances from
the bar code. This range varies according to bar code density and scanning device optics.
Scanning within range brings quick and dependable decodes; scanning too close or too far away prevents
decodes. Move the scanner closer or further away to find the right working range for the bar codes being
scanned.
4-2
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
• Angle
Scanning angle is important for promoting quick decodes.
The MC9500-K scans at a 15° angle which improves scanning ergonomics.
• Hold the MC9500-K farther away for larger symbols.
• Move the MC9500-K closer for symbols with bars that are close together.
NOTE
Scanning procedures depend on the application and MC9500-K configuration. An application may use
different scanning procedures from the one listed above.
Laser Scanning
1.
Ensure that a scan enabled application is loaded on the MC9500-K.

Figure 4-1 Linear Scanning
2.
Press and hold the scan button. The laser beam exits from the end of the MC9500-K. Ensure the red scan
beam covers the entire bar code. The Decode LED lights red to indicate that scanning is in process, then lights
green and a beep sounds, by default, to indicate the bar code was decoded successfully.

Decode Zones
The decode zones for the laser scanners are shown in Figure 4-3 and Figure 4-4. The figures shown are typical
values. Table 4-2 lists the typical distances for selected bar code densities. The minimum element width (or
“symbol density”) is the width in mils of the narrowest element (bar or space) in the symbol.
Note: Typical performance at 73°F (23°C) on high
quality symbols in normal room light.

Imaging
MC9500-K with an integrated imager have the following features:
• Omnidirectional (360°) reading of a variety of bar code symbologies, including the most popular linear, postal,
PDF417, and 2D matrix code types.
• The ability to capture and download images to a host for a variety of imaging applications.
• Advanced intuitive laser aiming for easy point-and-shoot operation.
The imager uses digital camera technology to take a digital picture of a bar code, stores the resulting image in its
memory, and executes state-of-the-art software decoding algorithms to extract the data from the image.
4-6
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
Operational Modes
MC9500-K with an integrated imager support three modes of operation, listed below. Activate each mode pressing
the Scan button.
• Decode Mode: In this mode, the MC9500-K attempts to locate and decode enabled bar codes within its field
of view. The imager remains in this mode as long as you hold the scan button, or until it decodes a bar code.
NOTE
To enable Pick List Mode, download the Control Panel applet from the Support Central web site at
http://www.motorola.com/enterprisemobility/support. Pick List can also be set in an application using a API
command.
• Pick List Mode: This mode allows you to selectively decode a bar code when more than one bar code is in
the MC9500-K’s field of view. To accomplish this, move the aiming crosshair center dot over the required bar
code to decode only that bar code. This feature is ideal for pick lists containing multiple bar codes and
manufacturing or transport labels containing more than one bar code type (either 1D or 2D).
• Image Capture Mode: Use this mode to capture an image within the MC9500-K’s field of view. This is useful
for capturing signatures or images of items like damaged boxes.

Smart Dialing
Smart Dialing makes it easy to dial a phone number. When you start entering numbers or characters, Smart Dialing
automatically searches and sorts the contact entries on the SIM card, in Contacts, and the phone numbers in Call
History (including incoming, outgoing, and missed calls). You can then select the desired number or contact from
the filtered list to dial.
Open the Phone screen, then tap the keys on the Phone keypad that correspond to the phone number or contact to
call. The contact panel lists contacts that match the sequence that you entered.
Smart Dialing starts looking for numbers or contacts that match the sequence entered.
To find a phone number:
• Enter the first one or two digits to find a phone number in Call History.
• Enter the first three digits or more to find a phone number from the saved Contacts and SIM card.
To find a contact name:
• Enter the first letter of a contact’s first name or last name. Smart Dialing searches for the letter starting
from the first character of a contact name as well as from the character that appears after a space, dash,
or underscore in a contact name. For example, if you tap number “2” which is associated with [a, b, c] on
the Phone keypad, contact names such as the following will be considered matches: “Smith, Bernard”,
“Adams, John”, “Carlson, Eileen”, “Dillon, Albert”, “Childs, Larry”, “Cooper, Robert” and “Parks, Celine”.
• If the matching list is long narrow down the search further by entering another letter. Using the same
example above, tap “3” which is associated with (d, e, f), the matching list is narrowed down to the
following names: “Smith, Bernard”, “Adams, John”, and “Parks, Celine”.

Chapter 6 Using GPS Navigation
Introduction
The MC9500-K includes Global Positioning System (GPS) technology using the SiRFstar III chipset. GPS
technology is based on a worldwide system of GPS satellites orbiting the earth that continuously transmit digital
radio signals. These radio signals contain data on the satellites’ locations and their exact clock time and are used
to determine your location on the earth.
WARNING!
When using the MC9500-K in a vehicle, it is the user’s responsibility to place, secure and use in a
manner that will not cause accidents, personal injury or property damage or obstruct their view. It
is the responsibility of the driver to operate the vehicle in a safe manner, maintain observation of
all driving conditions at all times, and not become distracted by the device to the exclusion of safe
driving practices. It is unsafe to operate the controls of the device while driving.
Software Installation
Third-party GPS navigation software is required. Evaluation software is available from various suppliers. For
example; VisualGPS, visit: http://www.visualgps.net/VisualGPSce/
If interested in purchasing GPS navigation software check with the GPS software vendor (before purchasing,
downloading, or installing any software) to determine that the application is compatible with the MC9500-K. Refer
to the application’s user guide for application installation and setup information.
MC9500-K GPS Setup
The GPS-enabled MC9500-K uses Microsoft Windows Mobile 6, so the operating system automatically manages
access to the GPS receiver to allow multiple programs to simultaneously access GPS data.
By default, the MC9500-K has the following settings:
1.
Tap Start > Settings > System > External GPS icon.
2.
In the Programs tab, the GPS program port is set to None.
3.
In the Hardware tab, the GPS hardware port is set to COM8.
6-2
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
To access the GPS receiver from multiple programs simultaneously, the user can either use the Microsoft GPS API
or change the GPS program port settings and access the GPS program port using multiplexing.
Operation
Acquiring satellite signals may take several seconds to a few minutes. It is best to be outside and have a clear,
unobstructed view of the sky. Without a clear view, acquisition takes much longer and could result in the MC9500-K
being unable to compute the initial position quickly. When operating the device indoors access to the GPS signals
may be limited or unavailable.
NOTE
When using a GPS navigation application, ensure that the MC9500-K does not go into suspend mode. If the
MC9500-K suspends then the power to the GPS radio is removed. Upon resume the GPS receiver must reacquire
a valid GPS signal, resulting in a a delay of positional information.
GPS Maps on microSD Cards
GPS navigation software vendors may sell maps on microSD cards. If using a microSD card with the GPS
navigation software install the microSD memory card using procedure in Installing a microSD Card on page 1-3.
Answering a Phone Call While Using GPS
If you receive a phone call while using your GPS navigation software:
1.
Answer the phone call by pressing the Answer button.
2.
Once you end the phone call, press the End Call button to resume the audio on the GPS software.
NOTE
Anytime you are using GPS on the MC9500-K and you receive a phone call, the audio on the GPS navigation
software is muted until you finish the call.
Losing the GPS Signal While in a Vehicle
GPS performance on the MC9500-K may be affected if the vehicle has thermal glass windows and windshields,
which can block the MC9500-K from receiving a GPS signal from satellites. To improve GPS signal strength, place
the MC9500-K where there is a clear view of the sky. A direct line of sight is required between the MC9500-K and
the GPS satellites to access information from the satellites.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a system that allows the user to track their position anywhere on the earth.
Assisted GPS
NOTE
Devices with Windows Mobile 6.5.3 contain an application that allows for connection to SUPL servers.
See Assisted GPS on page D-19 for more information.
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (A-GPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver downloads data
from GPS satellites. In certain environments, it can take several minutes to get a fix. By using GPS Location
servers, A-GPS dramatically reduces the TTFF (Time To First Fix) and improves the sensitivity of GPS receivers by
providing them with data that they would ordinarily have to download from the GPS satellites. With the A-GPS data,
GPS receivers can operate faster and more reliably.
Using GPS Navigation
6-3

Chapter 7 Using Bluetooth
Introduction
Bluetooth-equipped devices can communicate without wires, using frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS)
radio frequency (RF) to transmit and receive data in the 2.4 GHz Industry Scientific and Medical (ISM) band
(802.15.1). Bluetooth wireless technology is specifically designed for short-range (30 feet/10 meters)
communication and low power consumption.
MC9500-Ks with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other
Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones, printers, access points, and other mobile computers. To use the
MC9500-K as a modem, create a dial-up modem connection between a computer and MC9500-K.
The MC9500-K with Bluetooth technology uses either the StoneStreet Bluetooth stack or the Microsoft Bluetooth
stack. To write an application that uses the StoneStreet One Bluetooth stack APIs, refer to the Enterprise Mobility
Developer Kit (EMDK) Help.
Adaptive Frequency Hopping
Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) is a method of avoiding fixed frequency interferers, and can be used with
Bluetooth voice. All devices in the piconet (Bluetooth network) must be AFH-capable in order for AFH to work.
There is no AFH when connecting and discovering devices. Avoid making Bluetooth connections and discoveries
during critical 802.11b communications. AFH for Bluetooth consists of four main sections:
• Channel Classification - A method of detecting an interference on a channel-by-channel basis, or pre-defined
channel mask.
• Link Management - Coordinates and distributes the AFH information to the rest of the Bluetooth network.
• Hop Sequence Modification - Avoids interference by selectively reducing the number of hopping channels.
• Channel Maintenance - A method for periodically re-evaluating the channels.
When AFH is enabled, the Bluetooth radio “hops around” (instead of through) the 802.11b high-rate channels. AFH
coexistence allows Motorola mobile computers to operate in any infrastructure.
7-2
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
The Bluetooth radio in this MC9500-K operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is
2.5mW and the expected range is 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to
obtain due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
NOTE
It is not recommended to perform Bluetooth wireless technology inquiry when high rate 802.11b operation is
required.
Security
The current Bluetooth specification defines security at the link level. Application-level security is not specified. This
allows application developers to define security mechanisms tailored to their specific need. Link-level security
occurs between devices, not users, while application-level security can be implemented on a per-user basis. The
Bluetooth specification defines security algorithms and procedures needed to authenticate devices, and if needed,
encrypt the data flowing on the link between the devices. Device authentication is a mandatory feature of Bluetooth
while link encryption is optional.
Pairing of Bluetooth devices is accomplished by creating an initialization key that is used to authenticate the
devices and create a link key for them. Entering a common PIN number in the devices being paired generates the
initialization key. The PIN number is never sent over the air. By default, the Bluetooth stack responds with no key
when a key is requested (it is up to user to respond to the key request event). Authentication of Bluetooth devices
is based-upon a challenge-response transaction. Bluetooth allows for a PIN number or passkey that is used to
create other 128-bit keys used for security and encryption. The encryption key is derived from the link key used to
authenticate the pairing devices. Also worthy of note is the limited range and fast frequency hopping of the
Bluetooth radios that makes long-distance eavesdropping difficult.
Recommendations are:
• Perform pairing in a secure environment
• Keep PIN codes private and don't store the PIN codes in the mobile computer
• Implement application-level security.
The Microsoft stack supports Smart-pairing. For detailed information, refer to the Microsoft MSDN.

Appendix B Voice Quality Manager
Introduction
The Voice Quality Manager (VQM) is a software package that resides on the MC9500-K. VQM enables a set of
features for Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) calls, and a sub-set of those features for cellular line calls. The VQM user
interface is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, so complex tasks such as enabling the Acoustic Echo
Canceller (AEC) while a call is in progress are done with very little or no user intervention.
Features
The VQM software:
•
Improves the voice transmission quality without using additional battery power.
•
Turns on the AEC for VoWiFi calls automatically, without user intervention.
•
Prioritizes the outgoing audio IP packets.
•
Provides user-selectable audio modes (speakerphone and handset) with a single tap of the VQM icon. A
VQM icon in the title bar of the device indicates the audio mode currently in use.
•
NDIS 5.1 compliant.
Enabling VQM
To enable VQM:
1.
Tap Start > Programs > File Explorer.
2.
Navigate to the Windows folder.
3.
Locate the file VQMAudioNotify.
4.
Tap the filename to enable VQM.

MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
Audio Modes
The MC9500-K can be in any one of the seven different audio modes. The mode is visually indicated by the VQM
icon on the title bar.

The VQM icon indicates that the device is in speakerphone mode without Acoustic Echo Cancellation (indicated by
the gray VQM icon). The audio modes and their corresponding VQM title bar icons are:

Changing Audio Modes
Depending upon the audio mode being used, the mode can be changed by tapping the VQM icon in the title bar.
The audio mode can only be changed only while the user is on a call.

The table below lists the current audio mode and the subsequent audio mode after tapping the VQM icon.

Bluetooth headset
Speakerphone
If the audio mode is set to speakerphone and the user taps the VQM icon, the audio mode changes to handset.
If the user is using a Bluetooth headset, tapping the VQM icon un-pairs the Bluetooth headset from the device
causing the audio to be routed to the default mode. In VQM 2.5, there is no way to go back to the Bluetooth
headset using the VQM icon if it is un-paired The only way to reconnect the Bluetooth headset to the device is by
using the BTExplorer application.
If the user taps the VQM icon when a wired headset is connected to the mobile device, the audio mode does not
change. The audio continues to get routed to the wired headset.
If the user taps the VQM icon while not on a call there is not change to the audio mode.
Tap and hold the VQM icon in the title bar to display a notification dialog box that contains:
•
AEC: The Acoustic Echo Canceller status
•
DSCP Marked Packets: The number of outbound voice packets that have been recognized and marked as
high priority by VQM.
•
VQM Version: The VQM version number.
Figure B-2 VQM Audio Control Dialog Box
Voice Packet Prioritization
IP soft phones transmit voice packets in the same manner as any other application that sends data over the
network. On a network with different types of traffic, voice packets are given the same priority as any other traffic,
and therefore may be subject to delays.
WiFi Multi-media (WMM) is a solution to this problem. WMM is a specification that supports prioritizing traffic, and
“higher-priority” packets can be given preferential treatment.
B-4
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
To make use of WMM, the devices that generate traffic must mark their packets as high or normal priority in a field
in the IP packet called Differentiated Services Code-Point (DSCP). The wireless infrastructure, which must be
configured to support WMM, gives a higher priority to packets that have been marked as high priority through
DSCP marking by the devices that generate traffic.
VQM detects if there is an ongoing Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) call, and if so, marks outgoing voice packets (Only
outgoing voice packets can be marked. The incoming voice packets have already been through the network, so it
makes no sense to mark them.) as high-priority using DSCP. This enables WMM-compatible wireless infrastructure
to treat the voice packets preferentially. This results in fewer delays for voice packets, which in turn improves the
call quality.
Limitations
•
There is no VPN support in VQM.
•
Only the Avaya softphone is currently supported.
Acoustic Echo Cancellation
Acoustic Echo occurs during a voice call when the audio from the earpiece enters the microphone of the same
device. This results in the person at the other end hearing back a delayed version of his/her own voice (“Echo”).
Needless to say, “Echo” is not desirable, and needs to be suppressed. This is the functionality performed by the
Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC). There are two approaches to suppressing the Echo:
•
Turn the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) on permanently. This approach is not very efficient because the
device consumes more power when the AEC is on.
•
Turn the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) on only when there is an ongoing call.
VQM follows the second of the two approaches mentioned above.
VQM automatically turns on the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) when the mobile device is in a VoWiFi call. When
the call is terminated, VQM turns the AEC off. Note that the AEC is turned on for speakerphone and handset
modes and does not get turned on for wired headset and Bluetooth headset modes. The AEC is not required for
wired headset because the audio volume is quite low (because of the proximity of the earpiece to the ear), and
therefore it is very unlikely for the audio from the earpiece to go in to the mouthpiece. Bluetooth headsets typically
have an Echo Canceller built in. Turning the AEC on only while on a call saves battery power, compared to leaving
the AEC turned on permanently.
The AEC is not turned on for Cellular calls because the WWAN phone application has a built-in echo canceller.
Disabling VQM
To disable VQM perform a warm boot.

Assisted GPS
GPS can be used in stand-alone or Assisted GPS (A-GPS) modes. A Stand-alone GPS receiver downloads data
from GPS satellites. It can take several minutes to get a fix. By using GPS Location servers, A-GPS dramatically
improves the performance of the Time To First Fix (TTFF) of GPS receivers by providing them with data that they
would ordinarily have to download from the GPS satellites and other aiding data that helps the acquisition. With the
A-GPS data, GPS receivers can operate faster and more reliably.
A-GPS follows the Secure User Plane Location (SUPL) protocol which allows the MC9500-K to communicate with
a location server.
To configure SUPL on the MC9500-K:
1.
Tap Start > Settings > System > GPS Setup icon.

Smart Re-Aiding causes the MC9500-K to reconnect to the SUPL server and download new A-GPS data if there
are satellites in view and the number of satellites in use fall below the SVLimit value and the length of time passed
since the last SUPL session is more than the value set in the Interval field.
Timing Control on Opening determines whether a SUPL session is established when the GPS port is opened. If
the length of time passed since the last successful SUPL session is less than the set interval, a SUPL session is
not established when the GPS port is opened.
Tap the Factory Reset button to perform a factory reset on the GPS chip.

Glossary
A
API. An interface by means of which one software component communicates with or controls another. Usually used to refer
to services provided by one software component to another, usually via software interrupts or function calls
Aperture. The opening in an optical system defined by a lens or baffle that establishes the field of view.
Application Programming Interface. See API.
ANSI Terminal. A display terminal that follows commands in the ANSI standard terminal language. For example, it uses
escape sequences to control the cursor, clear the screen and set colors. Communications programs support the ANSI
terminal mode and often default to this terminal emulation for dial-up connections to online services.
ASCII. American Standard Code for Information Interchange. A 7 bit-plus-parity code representing 128 letters, numerals,
punctuation marks and control characters. It is a standard data transmission code in the U.S.
Autodiscrimination. The ability of an interface controller to determine the code type of a scanned bar code. After this
determination is made, the information content is decoded.
B
Bar. The dark element in a printed bar code symbol.
Bar Code. A pattern of variable-width bars and spaces which represents numeric or alphanumeric data in machine-readable
form. The general format of a bar code symbol consists of a leading margin, start character, data or message character,
check character (if any), stop character, and trailing margin. Within this framework, each recognizable symbology uses
its own unique format. See Symbology.
Bar Code Density. The number of characters represented per unit of measurement (e.g., characters per inch).
Bar Height. The dimension of a bar measured perpendicular to the bar width.
Glossary - 2
MC9500-K Mobile Computer User Guide
Bar Width. Thickness of a bar measured from the edge closest to the symbol start character to the trailing edge of the same
bar.
BIOS. Basic Input Output System. A collection of ROM-based code with a standard API used to interface with standard PC
hardware.
Bit. Binary digit. One bit is the basic unit of binary information. Generally, eight consecutive bits compose one byte of data.
The pattern of 0 and 1 values within the byte determines its meaning.
Bits per Second (bps). Bits transmitted or received.
BOOTP. A protocol for remote booting of diskless devices. Assigns an IP address to a machine and may specify a boot file.
The client sends a bootp request as a broadcast to the bootp server port (67) and the bootp server responds using the
bootp client port (68). The bootp server must have a table of all devices, associated MAC addresses and IP addresses.
boot or boot-up. The process a computer goes through when it starts. During boot-up, the computer can run self-diagnostic
tests and configure hardware and software.
bps. See Bits Per Second.
Byte. On an addressable boundary, eight adjacent binary digits (0 and 1) combined in a pattern to represent a specific
character or numeric value. Bits are numbered from the right, 0 through 7, with bit 0 the low-order bit. One byte in
memory is used to store one ASCII character.
C
CDRH. Center for Devices and Radiological Health. A federal agency responsible for regulating laser product safety. This
agency specifies various laser operation classes based on power output during operation.
CDRH Class 1. This is the lowest power CDRH laser classification. This class is considered intrinsically safe, even if all laser
output were directed into the eye's pupil. There are no special operating procedures for this class.
CDRH Class 2. No additional software mechanisms are needed to conform to this limit. Laser operation in this class poses
no danger for unintentional direct human exposure.
Character. A pattern of bars and spaces which either directly represents data or indicates a control function, such as a
number, letter, punctuation mark, or communications control contained in a message.
Character Set. Those characters available for encoding in a particular bar code symbology.
Check Digit. A digit used to verify a correct symbol decode. The scanner inserts the decoded data into an arithmetic formula
and checks that the resulting number matches the encoded check digit. Check digits are required for UPC but are
optional for other symbologies. Using check digits decreases the chance of substitution errors when a symbol is
decoded.
Codabar. A discrete self-checking code with a character set consisting of digits 0 to 9 and six additional characters: (“-”, “$”,
“:”, “/”, “,”, “+”).
Code 128. A high density symbology which allows the controller to encode all 128 ASCII characters without adding extra
symbol elements.
Glossary - 3
Code 3 of 9 (Code 39). A versatile and widely used alphanumeric bar code symbology with a set of 43 character types,

T
TCP/IP. (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) A communications protocol used to internetwork dissimilar
systems. This standard is the protocol of the Internet and has become the global standard for communications. TCP
provides transport functions, which ensures that the total amount of bytes sent is received correctly at the other end.
UDP is an alternate transport that does not guarantee delivery. It is widely used for real-time voice and video
transmissions where erroneous packets are not retransmitted. IP provides the routing mechanism. TCP/IP is a routable
protocol, which means that all messages contain not only the address of the destination station, but the address of a
destination network. This allows TCP/IP messages to be sent to multiple networks within an organization or around the
world, hence its use in the worldwide Internet. Every client and server in a TCP/IP network requires an IP address, which
is either permanently assigned or dynamically assigned at startup.
Telnet. A terminal emulation protocol commonly used on the Internet and TCP/IP-based networks. It allows a user at a
terminal or computer to log onto a remote device and run a program.
Terminal. See Mobile Computer.
Terminal Emulation. A “terminal emulation” emulates a character-based mainframe session on a remote non-mainframe
terminal, including all display features, commands and function keys. The VC5000 Series supports Terminal Emulations
in 3270, 5250 and VT220.
Terminate and Stay Resident (TSR). A program under DOS that ends its foreground execution to remain resident in
memory to service hardware/software interrupts, providing background operation. It remains in memory and may
provide services on behalf of other DOS programs.
TFTP. (Trivial File Transfer Protocol) A version of the TCP/IP FTP (File Transfer Protocol) protocol that has no directory or
password capability. It is the protocol used for upgrading firmware, downloading software and remote booting of diskless
devices.
Tolerance. Allowable deviation from the nominal bar or space width.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. See TCP/IP.
Trivial File Transfer Protocol. See TFTP.
TSR. See Terminate and Stay Resident.
U
UDP. User Datagram Protocol. A protocol within the IP protocol suite that is used in place of TCP when a reliable delivery
is not required. For example, UDP is used for real-time audio and video traffic where lost packets are simply ignored,
because there is no time to retransmit. If UDP is used and a reliable delivery is required, packet sequence checking and
error notification must be written into the applications.
UPC. Universal Product Code. A relatively complex numeric symbology. Each character consists of two bars and two
spaces, each of which is any of four widths. The standard symbology for retail food packages in the United States.
