4 Misconception For Beacon Technology In 2018


 (MENAFN Editorial) However, there are some casual misguided judgments, frequently dispersed by the media about the utilization of beacons and proximity marketing.

Take a look at the misconceptions that people assume for beacon as well as beacon app development.

Beacon Track People's Location
It is likely the most widely recognized of all. As a matter of first importance, reference points can't track you; they just communicate a flag that is grabbed by an application or they communicate a URL straightforwardly to your telephone. The cooperation between the beacon and your gadget happens at the application level, where you need to select in to permit guide connections. On the off chance that you choose not to select it, there is no connection and no following. When you believe the application merchant and permit beacon connections for a returned esteem, at exactly that point it is conceivable to find your gadget's area.

Intrusive Push Notification: The Only Use Of Beacon
Sadly, this isn't totally off-base. Beyond any doubt when iBeacon was released in 2013, a few organizations began to utilize reference points just to over-burden customers with push notifications, which brought about a terrible customer experience. Luckily, the proximity business has just passed that stage; significantly greater proximity/beacon point organizations are progressively information driven, and there are a few application areas where beacons can be utilized other than push notifications.

iBeacon Runs Only On iOS And Eddystone On Android
Absolutely wrong! iBeacons do take a shot at Android, however with a slight distinction. iBeacons can wake up applications on an iOS gadget regardless of whether the application isn't running. On Android, then again, you have to either have the application open or it should keep running out of sight. So you can utilize iBeacons on Android, they simply work diversely when contrasted with iOS.

Battery Loads Out Very Soon
Let's separate the greatest myth about beacon - device battery reduction. Beacons communicate through Bluetooth Low Energy signal, otherwise called Bluetooth Smart or Bluetooth 4.0. Contrasted with the former Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Smart is intended to lessen energy consumption altogether. It supports the smartphone which runs iOS and supporting range starts from iPhone 4s and on Android locally from the 4.3 Jelly Bean that was released in 2013. goTenna ran a verification on Oct 2015, where they were determined on discovering battery usage of various factors in an iPhone. The distinction between Bluetooth on and off was little to the point that they couldn't read it on their tools.the Bluetooth Smart is meant to reduce power consumption significantly. goTenna ran an experiment in Oct 2015, where they were determined on finding out battery usage of different variables in an iPhone. The difference between Bluetooth on and off was so little that they couldn't even read it on their instruments.

Although, there are many misconceptions beacon has changed the technology trend and beacon app development is growing day by day.

Our Methodology

Anyone can claim they do wireless site surveys, including those that walk around using free utilities that check for basic signal strength, without any training or understanding of how wireless works. That may be fine if you only need basic Internet connectivity, but if your network supports mission-critical applications, you need a professional-grade solution.

Our methodologies are what differentiate us from our competition. We start with the belief that combining the best tools and training with years of experience leads to the best wireless solutions available. Our formula for success includes the following:

Expert Certified Personnel

We start with a commitment to having the best trained personnel possible. We only employ or contract with Certified Wireless Network Professionals (CWNP).

We are proud to be a member of the prestigious CWNE roundtable, an exclusive committee of wireless experts dedicated to developing the highest level and most respect vendor-neutral certification in the wireless industry, as well as writing technical whitepapers.


Predictive Modeling

Predictive models, also known as virtual site surveys allow us to efficiently and accurately identify the number of access points required, as well as their initial placement and configuration. Modeling is ideal for creating "what if" scenarios that show us the effects of changes in real time. Our designs always start with a model which we then validate.


RF Spectrum Analysis

Because wireless networks operate in unlicensed frequencies, potential interference from numerous devices such as microwaves, cordless phones, Bluetooth devices, video cameras, etc. can have a significant negative impact. RF spectrum analyzers are the only devices that can identify physical-layer interference, and no onsite wireless site survey is complete without this service.


Onsite Site Surveys / Validation

When the highest degree of accuracy is required for your mission-critical applications, there is no substitute for a professional-grade manual site survey.

Our surveys start with temporarily mounting the same access points and antennas that will be permanently installed. We then use professional-grade software to test not only for signal strength, but Signal-to-Noise ratio (SNR) to test the signal's viability, interference and data rates. Our thorough approach is the most accurate solution available.


Detailed Deliverables

Our reports spell out the facts, and leave no doubt in the customer's mind as to what the wireless network does or will look like.
