Visibility Agent
When the printer is connected to a wired or wireless network, it will attempt to connect to Zebra’s Asset Visibility Service via the Cloud-based Zebra Printer Connector using an encrypted, certificate-authenticated web socket connection. The printer sends Discovery Data and Settings and Alerts Data. Data printed via any label formats is NOT transmitted.
To opt out of this feature, disable this setting. (For more information, see the “Opting Out of the Asset Visibility Agent” application note at zebra.com.)
