BLE beacon gateway can be used to detect any smartphones(like iPhone and Android cellphone), laptops, or handsfree devices which comes into the coverage area of this Bluetooth Gateway and in general any devices which works with Bluetooth interfaces, without being connected to a specific Access Point. Users have to do nothing to be detected as the Bluetooth radios are integrated into their smartphones. Therefore, BLE beacon gateways are often used with beacons together to provide RTLS location based promotional services.
BLE beacon gateway can automatically detect iBeacon, Eddystone, AltBeacon, or any other BLE Beacons nearby, collect data from them, and then pass on advertising data over 4G cellular, Wi-Fi, etc., to the server by MQTT/HTTPS protocols.
To make Beacon + Gateway work, firstly, you have to put beacon/tag on persons/items you may want to linked to. Beacon is a broadcast protocol based on the BLE protocol. Beacon will advertise data packet to the surrounding at regular intervals.
At the same time, you need to set up some Bluetooth beacon gateways, they will receive the data packets broadcast by Beacon at intervals when performing the scanning action. The content of the packet can contain up to 31 bytes.
Meanwhile, when the BLE beacon gateway receives a broadcast packet, it will indicate which Beacon MAC address the broadcast packet comes from (each Beacon has a unique MAC address), and what the current received and transmitted signal strength indication value RSSI.
After receiving the data, Bluetooth beacon gateway will send it to cloud servers by MQTT/TCP/HTTP protocols, and cloud servers will send the command back.
