Radio TX Power vs Advertised TX Power

Radio TX Power vs Advertised TX Power

Radio TX Power is the strength of the transmitted signal (in dBm). For our beacons it goes from -40 to +4 dBm. The Radio TX Power impacts on the transmission distance: the higher the Radio TX Power, the longer the distance.
The Advertised TX Power is the Calibrated RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator), i.e. the received power measured at a reference distance, that is 0 mt for Eddystone and 1 mt for iBeacon packets. By default, the Calibrated RSSI is automatically scaled when Radio TX power is modified, so that the proximity estimation is not impacted.
