Fujitsu Introduces Bluetooth Smart Beacon for IoT Solutions
Fujitsu Components America, a subsidiary of Fujitsu, has introduced a battery-powered Bluetooth Smart beacon designed to be paired with existing or OEM-developed Internet of Things (IoT) applications and other custom features, in order to provide a complete, wireless beacon solution. The beacon is suitable for indoor navigation at train stations, airports and exhibition halls, the company reports, as well as logistics management, health care, retail couponing, and point-of-presence for museums and expos.
The beacon, made with Fujitsu's MBH7BLZ02 Bluetooth Smart module, is packaged in a plastic case measuring 40 millimeters by 31 millimeters by 12 millimeters (1.6 inches by 1.2 inches by 0.5 inch), and weighs 10 grams (0.4 ounce). Sample application source codes for iOS and Android operating systems are available to enable practical demonstrations, the company reports. The beacon is FCC-, IC- and CE-certified and meets the Bluetooth v4.1 specification. Samples are available now, according to Fujitsu, with general availability expected in January 2016.
