BLE-beacon supported technologies

BLE-beacon supported technologies

The following technologies are supported simultaneously: the two main technologies for proximity-beacons for mobile applications, iBeacon and Eddystone, together with a technologies for RTLS BLE tags, Quuppa. This is the first worldwide firmware to support these three technologies at the same time. It also advertises a proprietary frame, BlueUp Sensors, for sensor data broadcast.
Additionally, it guarantees full support for Eddystone specifications. This means that you will be able to manage BlueBeacon beacons (for configuration of Eddystone frames) also using open-source development tools for Eddystone beacons, such as Proximity Beacon API from Google or nRF Beacon for Eddystone app from Nordic Semiconductors.
