iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. Bluetooth LE devices use iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications

Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines Bluetooth LE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used individually or in combinations. The BlueUp beacons have been certified by Google in accordance with the requirements of the Eddystone specifications.
