Aruba Location Services

with Aruba Beacons

Bring real-time location context to your mobile apps

Aruba Beacons leverage Bluetooth Low-Energy (BLE) technology to power indoor location and wayfinding, proximity-aware push notifications, and other location-based mobile engagement services for enterprise venues.

Small, low-power wireless transmitters, Aruba Beacons broadcast radio signals at regular intervals that can be heard and interpreted by iOS and Android devices equipped with Meridian-powered mobile apps from Aruba. With the Aruba 320 series APs, you can remotely manage battery-powered Aruba Beacons or you can use the new Aruba Sensor to manage deployments over any Wi-Fi.
