M9B Beacon Gateway

Beyond VoIP

With our professional VoIP DECT solutions, we offer our customers worldwide reliable and powerful communication systems for everyday business. Depending on the area of application, we offer our customers the perfect solution for their requirements.

But communication alone is not enough - we go one step further. With the Snom M9B Beacon Gateways, we offer a cost-effective, state-of-the-art solution to integrate high-profile location and asset tracking as well as alarm systems into any existing Snom DECT multi-cell system*. And it's easier than ever! The Snom M9B can be powered by battery as well as by USB power adapter, making it flexible and retrofittable to almost any location. 

The Snom M9B Beacon works as a Bluetooth satellite that is connected to an M900 DECT base station via a DECT data connection. The beacon itself constantly sends out Bluetooth signals to scan registered devices in its vicinity. The 4 antennas integrated in the M9B enable precise live location of a registered device thanks to beamforming in the near-field range of 1-15 metres and report this information in real time to the nearest M900 base station. At the same time, the M9B is compatible with many Bluetooth beacons from well-known manufacturers such as iBeacon, AltBeacon or Eddystome.
