IoT NY Meetup #12- All About Beacons


This month, we’ll step into the world of beacons with a Beacons 101 session, and deeper discussion around beacon deployment, analytics, services and underlying technology.

We’ll touch on:

• Architecting cross-platform solutions for Bluetooth Smart, iBeacon, Android

• Mechanics of radios, pairing, fleet management

• Variety and range of devices/access points that function as beacons

• Emerging use cases around proximity and other sensing services

• Blurring of physical and digital worlds and approaches to drive further innovation


Dave Mathews is Founder & CEO of the NewAer. NewAer has created a peer-to-peer discovery and communication platform for all operating systems which developers can build upon for a better than iBeacon experience. The platform leverages WiFi, Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart or NFC in devices for a software only rollout to support proximity services.

Sharat Potharaju is the co-founder & CEO of MobStac. MobStac is a cloud-hosted platform that enables location-aware mobile apps to contextually deliver content or commerce. MobStac's new product Beaconstac provides native SDKs and a comprehensive backend (including a content management system) for app developers to rapidly build location-aware apps leveraging beacons.
