A BLE system can consist of one or more BEACON, a wireless device that transmits a Bluetooth Low Energy information package. You can receive this from either a nearby smartphone or gateway and use it to calculate your location in relation to the beacon. This technology allows you to provide contextualized information and increasingly connect the online world with the offline world.
In the simplest version, a BLE BEACON periodically sends its unique identification code, while the more complex models integrate various types of sensors: temperature, humidity, pressure, microphone or accelerometer. In these configurations, the BEACON becomes a strategic device for monitoring machinery in a production environment, for detecting temperature in smart building applications, and for collecting data for predictive maintenance and other routine operations in the world of the Internet of Things.
FasThink together with companies that are qualified in the design of BLE BEACON and Gateway guarantees the connectivity and integration of the devices to the IT systems through the middleware platform CONNECT.
