Announcing Updated Reader Configuration Software and Firmware

June 29, 2015 Louise Ping

Octane 5.4 is now available for download

We are excited to announce the availability of Impinj Octane 5.4, firmware that enables Speedway, xArray, and xPortal readers to access LLRP data from RAIN RFID tags. Octane 5.4 firmware is now available for Impinj authorized partners and our customers that have Enhanced Maintenance. All other users should contact the company their reader was purchased from to request firmware updates. In this update, we added functionality to the firmware based on your feedback. Also based on feedback, we graduated the Octane Java SDK from beta status.

Updates in Octane 5.4 include:

  • Expanded RAIN RFID tag tracking functionality with Impinj xArray tag direction mode.
    • Get entry, update, and exit reports for tags as they move through designated sectors via Octane Java SDK 1.2
  • Enhanced security profiles to protect your reader.
    • Require readers to authenticate to gain network access using standards based 802.1x.
    • Leverage SFTP to protect upgrades by authenticating to a remote server and ensuring secure transport of files.
    • Encrypt Customer Application Partition (CAP) files to secure embedded applications.

Authorized partners and Enhanced Maintenance customers can download Octane 5.4 here: https://support.impinj.com/hc/en-us/articles/204383817-Latest-firmware-utilities-and-development-libraries-for-Impinj-readers-and-gateways
