Maxi BLE

Maxi BLE is a long-life battery-powered Bluetooth Low Energy beacon. With second-generation firmware version, it simultaneously supports multiple technologies: iBeacon, Eddystone (full support, with GATT and EID), Quuppa (emulation mode).
Maxi BLE is the perfect choice when operating life is a main concern. Typical scenarios are proximity mobile applications in retail or tourism, industrial applications, indoor positioning.
Maxi BLE is powered by two standard AA alkaline batteries, easily replaceable, and it comes in three enclosure versions: with flanges for wall-mounting (with snap-fit cover or back-screws) or without flanges (with back-screws).

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BLE 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.
