This session will explain the technology foundation of Bluetooth beacons, and will explore the role of Bluetooth Smart, the new Bluetooth 5 standard and its future direction. Core to the ecosystem are the standards from Apple and Google—iBeacon, Eddystone and the Physical Web—that are becoming deeply embedded in every smartphone. This review will provide an understanding of what is and is not possible with beacon technologies using these standards.
