With the Snom Beacon Solution, Snom offers a cost-effective and contemporary solution to integrate professional location and asset tracking and alarm systems** into any existing Snom DECT multi-cell system*.
The Snom M9B Beacon Gateway works as a Bluetooth satellite that is connected to a Snom M900 base via a DECT data connection. The beacon gateway itself can either transmit Bluetooth signals continuously (TX) to scan registered devices in its vicinity or react in receive mode (RX) to signals from approaching beacons. 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 Snom M900 base. At the same time, the M9B is compatible with many Bluetooth beacons from well-known manufacturers such as iBeacon, AltBeacon or Eddystome.
The Snom M9B Beacon Gateway can be operated by battery as well as by USB power adapter and is therefore flexible and can be retrofitted at almost any location.
This allows a wide range of scenarios to be mapped, from indoor navigation, theft protection, inventory management, tracking solutions and much more. On the one hand, the beacons are inexpensive to purchase, can be installed with minimal effort and consume hardly any power thanks to the BLE standard (Bluetooth Low Energy). In addition, beacons normally do not affect already existing infrastructures such as WLAN, DECT or mobile radio. Even medical devices remain undisturbed.
*Snom M9B Beacon Gateways can only be operated with Snom M900 bases.
**Third party software is required in many applications.
This device has Bluetooth headset support.
This device communicates using the radio standard for telecommunications called DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications).
This device is able to receive updates via radio, i.e. OTA (over-the-air). As a rule, the DECT handsets must be in their charging cradle for this.
With the Snom M9B Beacon Gateways we offer an ideal solution for professional "location and asset tracking" as well as alarm systems into a into a Snom DECT multi-cell system of the M-series. The Snom M9B Beacon Gateway works as a Bluetooth satellite, which connects via a DECT data connection to a Snom M900 DECT base station. The 4 antennas integrated in the Snom M9B enable thanks to beamforming in the range of 1-1.5 metres, in order to protect objects from theft, for example. protect objects from theft. For the individual requirements of tracking (alarm, monitoring, signalling), we work with specialised specialised third-party providers.
