Creates an IoT Device-Type Imagotag policy and enters its configuration mode. Use this option to enable support for SES-imagotag‘s ESL (Electronic Shelf Label) tags on WiNG APs with USB interfaces.

ESL tags are small, battery-powered devices used by retail businesses to display information, such as product code, pricing, etc. These tags are activated, configured, and managed through an SES-Imagotag provided server. The tags and server communicate through an ESL communicator (a USB dongle), connected to the USB port on the WiNG AP. This communication is over the 2.4 GHz band using a proprietary RF protocol. The ESL communicator acts as a bridge between the tags and the server, using WiNG AP as an infrastructure device.

This policy, when applied on an AP, enables the AP recognize the ESL communicator, and facilitate communication between communicator and tags.

The policy can be applied to the AP‘s self (in case of stand alone AP), or pushed to the AP through the adopting controller. In the latter case, apply the policy on the AP‘s profile.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP-8432
  • Wireless Controllers — RFS 4000
  • Service Platforms — NX 5500, NX 75XX, NX 95XX, NX 96XX, VX 9000


The policy is applicable only on the AP-8432 model access point, which supports the USB interface.
