Many of Zebra's newer range of thermal printers, including the QLn220 QLn320 QLn420, support integration with their Link-OS environment. We've recieved several questions asking exactly what is Link-OS, and how it can benefit them, so in this post we'll be taking a quick look at Zebra's exciting new printer integration solution.
Zebra's Link-OS™ is their operating system that is designed for cloud-based applications that ties in with their vision of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. The Internet of Things refers to smart interconnected devices that communicate with each other and provide more information and control in real time. An example would be using technologies and applications to identify and track the condition of assets or transactions within or across organizations. The idea is that this information helps businesses and their customers remain informed and provide the ability to make dynamic business decisions.
Zebra have used this concept to create the Link-OS environment: an open platform that pairs an operating system for smart Zebra devices with powerful software apps, making the devices easy to integrate, manage and maintain from any location. Link-OS allows you to manage or print from any Zebra device connected to your network of zebra products, which are easy to access with their intuitive app suite. The app is available on iOS, Android and Windows phones operating system.
