Proximity technology, in particular Bluetooth beacons, are a major source of business opportunity and this book provides everything you need to know to architect a solution to capitalize on that opportunity. Learn the key standards--iBeacon, Eddystone, Bluetooth 4.0, AltBeacon—and how they work with other proximity technologies. Then build your understanding of the proximity framework and how to identify and deploy the best solutions for your own business, institutional, or consulting needs.
