iBeacon. Intelligent location-based device management.
Imagine walking into a room and having a printer automatically configured or application installed just because of your location.
iBeacon and dataJAR can deliver all this and more with our cloud MDM solutions.
What is iBeacon?
iBeacon is Apple's method of providing location-based information and services to iPhones, iPads and Macs.
It’s an implementation of Bluetooth low-energy (BLE) wireless technology that allows a device to distinguish between different beacons. When integrated into datajar.mobi it is ideal for providing location-based device management.
iBeacon enables us to seamlessly manage devices in classrooms and offices, delivering benefits and efficiencies specific to users’ locations.
What about privacy?
iBeacons do not track users – they simply broadcast a unique number that your iOS or Android devices can receive when they are in range of an iBeacon.
If permitted by the user, iOS and Android apps can use this number to present location relevant information or controls.
So users can feel confident that their privacy is in their control.
iBeacon is a native Apple technology, so it integrates seamlessly and scales effortlessly with our systems.
Apple has built iBeacon awareness into iOS, so it delivers a smooth user experience, protects privacy and uses very little battery power. (It can also be used by any device that supports standard Bluetooth 4 wireless communication.)
dataJAR can help you procure and integrate iBeacon technology into your school or business.
