Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Asset Tracking
Bluetooth is a wireless network technology that connects various Internet of Things (IoT) devices.
BLE is a type of wireless communication technology. This technology enables various wireless devices to connect and communicate with each other to deliver a specific message. Industries such as healthcare, manufacturing, and warehousing – have found great benefit from Bluetooth LE for tracking and monitoring their most critical assets via an asset management solution.
Due to small data transfers, tags offer lower-power consumption, faster transmission speed, and accuracy, creating a positive impact on a company’s performance. One benefit is that batteries do not need frequent replacement. Companies can save on battery costs and labor costs.
Benefit 1: Bluetooth Low Energy vs. Bluetooth
Bluetooth LE is an even more efficient form of Bluetooth because it conserves even more energy by going into sleep mode when not in use.
Benefit 2: Secure Network
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has traditionally relied on connections to mobile phones. By using Symphony Link-to-BLE bridge devices, you can manage BLE peripherals over a large area without relying on handsets.
Benefit 3: Fraction of the Cost
By using BLE connections as the last links in your sensor network, you can leverage low-cost chipsets from a mature ecosystem of suppliers and vendors.
Benefit 4: Effortlessly Send Data
When BLE and Symphony Link combine, you can connect all sensor data for your wide-area industrial applications without sacrificing real-time bidirectional communication.
Bluetooth LE is a leading choice for industries in need of indoor asset tracking because of its ability to locate important assets quickly and accurately without straining on tag battery life.
Link Labs Real-Time Location System (RTLS) — with no WiFi or IT dependency — tells employees where equipment, parts, and products are. Knowing the location has dramatically reduced bottlenecks and wasted time. IIoT enables staff to improve customer satisfaction and enhances profitability.Read More
Healthcare organizations can track assets by room or throughout a larger facility in real-time. Create custom alerts that are sent by text message or email so you can be made aware of a provider coming onto the floor or a machine being taken off the floor. View custom reports showing where assets are and have been, including historical location data.Read More
