What’s inside the Virtual BLE Beacon Solution


Cisco Beacon Point hardware

Each Beacon Point can generate multiple virtual Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) beacons using Power over Ethernet (PoE) and beamforming. Manage it like any other enterprise-grade IT device. Beacon Point is available as a standalone device or as a plug-in module for the Aironet 3800.


Cisco CMX Cloud Beacon Center

Beacon Center makes managing virtual BLE beacons drag-and-drop simple. It’s delivered through the CMX Cloud portal and available by subscription.


Beacon Point SDK

Using our solution software developer kit, you can build mobile apps to deliver push notifications, provide turn-by-turn navigation, and capture BLE analytics.
