· Hardware,RTLS,Wi-Fi

Cisco reveals that over half a million of their Meraki Wi-Fi routers in the field have built in Bluetooth hardware that enables them to act as iBeacons. Thanks to a recent cloud update, these can also be used as beacon gateways to monitor third party beacons. We talk to Colin Lowenberg who is responsible for managing the Cisco Meraki API product offering about what this means, the functionality available, how it’s being used by customers and how Cisco wants to work with other vendors in the beacon ecosystem.
