ZEBRA 9160 G2

ZEBRA 9160 G2


You need to manage and track inventory in some of the most challenging outdoor environments — from seaports and rail yards to airports and expansive outdoor manufacturing yards. Not only are these areas vast, but materials are often present that can wreak havoc on a traditional Wi-Fi signal, from large metal shipping containers to water, wood, ceramics, microwave dryers, other 2.4 GHz wireless networks and more. The 9160 G2 wireless gateway solves that problem with Narrowband wireless connectivity. Narrowband provides a robust and secure wireless connection for simple data applications that can cost-effectively cover every inch of your sprawling facility. Just one 9160 G2 base station covers up to one mile — a distance that would typically require 10 Wi-Fi access points. And since our advanced network and data protocols overcome Narrowband bandwidth constraints, your workers get sub-second access to the information they need to accurately and efficiently move inventory in, through and out of your facility. Get affordable wireless connectivity for your largest spaces with Narrowband, only from Zebra.

Easy, cost-effective wireless coverage in every inch of your facility

Narrowband is ideal for your largest, most expansive areas, minimizing infrastructure requirements and cost while delivering a solid dependable connection in challenging RF environments. Regardless of the types of materials or volume of traffic in the 2.4 GHz band that are present in your environment, they will not degrade the signal. And since the mobile devices connected to your narrowband network operate in low power receive mode, the resulting substantial energy savings ensures that your workers have plenty of power for a full-shift.

Flexible backhaul options

The 9160 G2 offers wired and wireless options to connect to your network. You can connect the 9160 G2 to your network with a single Ethernet cable — with support for Power-over-Ethernet, there is no need to run power. The optional Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g radio provides a wireless connection to your network, addressing areas where running a cable is too challenging or expensive. And the wide variety of indoor and outdoor 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz directional and sector panel antennas ensure a robust wireless connection back to your enterprise network.

Easy remote management

Centralized and remote management of security, configuration profiles and software upgrades makes network management easy.

A total solution

In addition to the 9160 G2, you’ll need devices that can run on the Narrowband network. That’s why our Omnii XT15 handheld and VH10 vehicle mount mobile computers offer Narrowband radio options. These rugged devices are ready for the toughest environmental conditions. And whether workers are on foot or driving a forklift or other material handling vehicle, there is a device option that is perfect for the job
