BlueBeacon Maxi 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).
BlueBeacon Maxi 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.
BlueBeacon Maxi 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).
Easily-replaceable alkaline batteries offer the longest operating life on the market
nRF51822 SoC and optimized antenna design, for best on the market signal performances
Easy wall installation: the perfect choice for indoor navigation and positioning
Beacon can be configured, with a secure AES-128 ECB encrypted-password access
8 slots configurable for non-connectable advertising frames:
- 4 slots, each configurable for Eddystone frame types: UID, URL, TLM or EID.

iBeacon technology creates a small area of detection for Bluetooth 4.0 enabled mobile devices. BlueBeacon devices uses iBeacon licensed technology, and have been certified by BlueUp to meet
Apple Proximity Beacon Specifications
Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines BLE formats for proximity beacon advertising, with different frame types that may be used
individually or in combinations. BlueBeacon Maxi is certified from Google for full support for Eddystone specifications.
BlueBeacon Maxi is compatible with Quuppa Intelligent Locating System, a powerful technology platform for novel location based services and applications. It enables real-time tracking of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
smart tags and devices, with accuracy even down to a few centimeters.
