Aislelabs now supports Google’s Eddystone Beacons

eddystone-beacon-aislelabs2

Yesterday Google announced Eddystone, an open-source alternative to Apple's iBeacon protocol. Apple introduced the iBeacon protocol in 2013 utilizing Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) as a solution to enable proximity for phones. With Eddystone, Google has now unveiled its own take on the already-established iBeacon protocol. While both Eddystone and iBeacon are very similar, both being BLE advertising packets, Google has chosen to make Eddystone a more open and extensible protocol. Also, by supporting Eddystone in its Nearby APIs, Eddystone beacons will be able to interact with apps other than those made by the venue.
