How does uBeacon Mesh work?
A “Mesh” is a network of which nodes are formed by beacons. Some are connectable nodes, i.e. can accept connections from mobile devices. Generally at least one is also a gateway to a server or external network, where the information is passed onto. uBeacon Mesh devices can operate in both iBeacon and Mesh modes simultaneously.
Business rules and technical configuration are handled through the ubudu Manager console.
