How Wirepas Mesh Works for Location 

Extronics iTAG XB range of location tags support Wirepas protocol. The Wirepas solution uses RSS (Received signal strength) to approximate the location of a tag. It is like Wi-Fi in this way, however the location anchors used in a Wirepas system, like our iTAG XB40, are battery powered, require no external cabling, and form their own self-healing, scalable mesh network.

Network management is handled by each location anchor in a Wirepas mesh network. The anchors self-negotiate the best way to offload the RSS data to the positioning server via a Wirepas gateway. This ensures there are no single points of failure if one anchor should fail.
