'Aruba' just announced the release of the first cloud-based beacon management system. In recent years, a number of airports have turned to beacon technology as a means of improving the customer experience. This beacon system is specially designed to reduce IT overhead and make it easier for airports to manage the technology.
The 'Aruba Sensor' is a beacon management system that combines a small WiFi client with a Bluetooth low energy radio. This technology allows airports to manage all beacons from a single location, even if they span across multiple networks. The idea is to make it easier and more cost-effective for IT departments to manage and monitor beacon data. This means that IT personnel can monitor battery life, power settings and issue software updates all from a single location.
By allowing airports to manage beacons remotely, the Aruba Sensor can ultimately save valuable IT resources and cut down on overhead costs.
