Information About Configuring RFID Tag Tracking
The Switch enables you to configure radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag tracking. RFID tags are small
wireless devices that are affixed to assets for real-time location tracking. They operate by advertising their
location using special 802.11 packets, which are processed by access points, the controller, and the location
appliance.

2. (Optional) no location rfid status
3. location rfid timeout seconds
4. location rfid mobility vendor-name name
5. (Optional) no location rfid mobility name
DETAILED STEPS
Step 1
Command or Action
Purpose
location rfid status
Enables RFID tag tracking.
By default, RFID tag tracking is enabled.
Example:
Switch(config)# location rfid status
Step 2
(Optional) no location rfid status
Disables RFID tag tracking.
Example:
Switch(config)# no location rfid status
Step 3
location rfid timeout seconds
Example:
Switch(config)# location rfid timeout
1500
Specifies a static timeout value (between 60 and 7200 seconds).
The static timeout value is the amount of time that the switch maintains
tags before expiring them. For example, if a tag is configured to beacon
every 30 seconds, we recommend that you set the timeout value to 90
seconds (approximately three times the beacon value). The default value
is 1200 seconds.
Step 4
location rfid mobility vendor-name name Enables RFID tag mobility for specific tags. When you enter the location
rfid mobility vendor-name command, tags are unable to obtain a DHCP
address for client mode when attempting to select and/or download a
Example:
Switch(config)# location rfid mobility configuration.
vendor-name Aerosct
Note
These commands can be used only for Pango tags. Therefore,
the only valid entry for vendor_name is “pango” in all lowercase
letters.
Step 5
(Optional) no location rfid mobility name
Example:
Switch(config)# no location rfid
mobility test
Disables RFID tag mobility for specific tags. When you enter the no
location rfid mobility command , tags can obtain a DHCP address. If a
tag roams from one subnet to another, it obtains a new address rather than
retaining the anchor state.
