A look at Estimote’s new cloud-connected LTE beacons
Estimote have been creating super pretty Bluetooth beacons since 2013, helping spot the location of people and their phones in indoor situations. They've got a new LTE beacon that can report its indoor and outdoor position, so I asked Jakub Krzych, CEO & Co-Founder of Estimote, to give us the lowdown.
What are Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons?
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons are connected tech that doesn't get quite as much attention as other emerging tech like VR and AI. Beacons are often not understood, they're Bluetooth and we like Bluetooth... but what about having Bluetooth on a small device is that exciting anyway? Here's a look at what BLE beacons are and why they are actually pretty darn cool.
Estimote’s Wojtek Borowicz on the opportunities of beacons
Recently, whilst talking about BLE beacons and my recent endeavours with them, Wojtek Borowicz from Estimote and I crossed paths and he was kind enough to agree to answer some of my questions on Bluetooth Beacons for Dev Diner. BLE beacons are a very exciting technology and one which is really starting to take off! I'm hoping to have a few more interviews on this space in the weeks to come - stay tuned!
