Yenlo organizes a webinar ‘Building the World’s Biggest iBeacon Living Lab with WSO2’ on September 29.
The city of Amsterdam, together with Yenlo and partners, is building the biggest iBeacon Living Lab with the help of WSO2 products. Beacons are small radio devices that send out a bluetooth signal that can be picked up by nearby smartphones. As part of the smart city initiative, these beacons will literally become part of the city. First, the iBeacon Mile (slightly longer than 3.4km), consisting of 60 beacon installations, will be built from the central station of Amsterdam to the Scheepvaartmuseum. Within a year there will be almost 3000 beacons throughout the city of Amsterdam.
Beacons allow for a much more precise determination of location (from 80 or so meters to less than 50 centimetres) enabling a new level of location based services both indoors and outdoors. Through this, navigation, hyper local advertising, couponing, showing historic content about monuments and many other services become a reality.
In order to make this possible we are creating a solution with WSO2 products to open up the beacons to developers by offering a set of public APIs. In this webinar we will discuss:
- The iBeacon Mile project
- How we open up a public set of APIs to developers using
- WSO2 API Manager
- WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus
- WSO2 Data Services Server
