BlueRange is the state of the art Smart Beacon Management solution, based on bluetooth mesh technology.
BlueRange provides an enterprise-oriented end-to-end solution to manage large-scale beacon and IoT device installations. BlueRange comes with a complete platform offering. It is a reliable and easy way to manage beacons for numerous use cases in various industries like lighting, retail, health care and production.
With the growing progress in the Internet of Things (IoT) sector, the demand for device management of IoT devices is increasing. The high amount of experience in Mobile Device Management qualifies the Relution platform for evolutionary development into an IoT platform. The further development of our Beacon technology improves use cases relying on Smart Beacon Management. BlueRange provides the necessary components for businesses that need a scalable and easy-to-manage infrastructure for location based services:
BlueRange is available as SaaS or on-premise solution to clients and partners. The platform allows clients
to manage all hardware, software and the BlueRange BLE mesh.
BlueRange also allows you to manage all kind of beacons, smart beacons and other IoT devices. Software usage, software updates, and content management are all controlled from the platform's dashboard. In use cases with mobile apps applied within a mesh, BlueRange is used to address and manage all SDK related activities.
As a multi tenant platform, it allows users to scale, enroll and manage tens of thousands of locations and even more devices / nodes.
Based on ten years of platform experience, our beacon management platform is easy to connect with other systems to either access or distribute data. BlueRange delivers a clear and intuitive structure and user interface that ensures a good overview, even on multiple sites and with numerous beacons in use simultaneously. The aggregated data can be displayed in list views, charts, static or live maps.
The firmware on our BlueRange SmartBeacons was specifically developed to support the auto-meshing function.
The integrated protocol is the optimal solution for Bluetooth Low Energy mesh cases. It guarantees maximum of performance with a minimum of power consumption.
Its modular architecture ensures high stability and security and yet flexibility and performance. Over-The-Air firmware updates provide a convenient way to deal with changing requirements in different use cases.
The BLE Mesh Protocol
A bluetooth mesh is comparable to a network of small devices (beacons) which form a virtual grid. Within this grid, digital transactions via a mobile apps or other digital devices can be traced and monitored.
Our BlueRange mesh is based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology and is backward compatible to Bluetooth 4.1. While the mesh protocol is a new feature of Bluetooth 5.0, our BlueRange mesh protocol supports Bluetooth up to version 4.1 and therefore both current and older mobile devices. The advantages of a BLE mesh are numerous:
- It allows users to easily digitize small and large spaces, so physical space can become part of an interaction based environment.
- A BLE mesh is smart, stable and easy to use.
- It provides full control over all activities happening within the mesh.
- The mesh is a low cost infrastructure solution which is easy to set up.
- The mesh can be implemented in existing infrastructure or can be operated independently.
Smart Beacon and Beacons
BlueRange beacons are available in two forms:
As a smart beacon providing bidirectional communication, most suitable to set up a BLE mesh;
or as simple beacons, which can be applied to assets or integrated into wearables, etc.
Our beacons come in a variety of sizes and forms. Depending on the client´s requirements, a beacon can be battery powered for short and long service periods, depending on size and use cases, or a fixed line device. If required the beacons can be integrated in certain infrastructural components and fixtures such as lighting. Bluerange is compatible with a number of lighting OEMs.
Offline Mode: Our SmartBeacons are online, so your customer’s phones can be offline – this makes it possible to send customizable campaign information to your app – even if there’s no mobile network connection.
We advise clients to work with our beacons to experience the power of a BLE mesh and the many possible use cases. In case clients already have beacons, or would like to source their own beacons, we can provide the necessary specifications and supply them with the necessary software. This will guarantee the best results and performance.
The Mesh Gateway
The mesh gateway is a key component of operating a BLE mesh.
The gateway, the access point, and the controller of all beacons, acts as a channel (gateway) to the BlueRange cloud platform.
Our BlueRange mesh gateway communicates via a Raspberry Pi mounted SmartBeacon with the Internet. The mesh gateway is a powerful device which allows a BLE mesh with a hundred SmartBeacons to be operated smoothly.
Depending on the operational environment and the according use cases, it might be useful to add one or more mesh gateways to achieve the best result.
The next bluetooth
BlueRange is ready to provide IoT and beacon solutions using the Bluetooth 5.0 standard on request. For BLE, it comes with four times increased range and increased capacity of connecting multiple specific devices enabling more use cases than before.DISCOVER MORE ABOUT OUR TECHNOLOGY >
