BlueUp develops beacons and sensors based on Bluetooth Low Energy technology: our BlueBeacon series offers one of the widest choice of proximity beacons on the market.
Our beacons are internally designed (from antenna to firmware) and made in Italy.
BlueBeacon devices support the most advanced beacon firmware on the market, the first BLE-beacon firmware worldwide to offer simultaneous support of the following
technologies: iBeacon (released by Apple), Eddystone (released by Google, with full support of new Eddystone specifications, including new configuration GATT and
encrypted Eddystone-EID), Quuppa (a location technology with sub-meter accuracy), Sensors (a BlueUp proprietary frame for sensor data advertising).
BlueBeacon beacons are compatible with all mobile operating systems (iOS, Android, Windows Phone) supporting standard Bluetooth 4.0 (or later).
A comparative table of the beacons is available in the Support section, to help you choose the most suitable model for your application.
Beacons are supplied in a "white-label" enclosure: custom silk-screen or digital printing available on demand
Possibility of supplying beacons with pre-configured parameters to customer specifications
Implementation and integration of custom features and functionalities
Interfacing BLE beacons and devices with new or existing applications or back-end systems
Mechanical changes, design of new enclosures to customer specification
BlueUp provides a set of tool for management, configuration and monitoring of BLE beacons.
Moreover, BlueUp can provide the following services:
- technical support for mobile applications development (for iOS and Android), based on Bluetooth Low Energy, iBeacon and Eddystone technologies;
- turn-key BLE-beacon infrastructures: planning, design, supply, installation and maintenance services;
- consultancy for the design and implementation of BLE beacon-based systems and solutions.
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 to create beacons that can be used for a variety of applications. BlueBeacon devices are certified from Google.
Nearby Notifications helps users to discover what's around them, by surfacing location-specific notifications for apps and websites, with no prior app install required.
Nearby Notifications is supported on Android and works with all types of Eddystone beacon, and also iBeacon.
The Physical Web is an open approach, developed by Google, to enable quick and seamless web-based interactions with physical objects and locations.
The Physical Web uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) because of its ubiquity on mobile devices, and is based on Eddystone-URL format.
BlueBeacon-series beacons are 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.
