Typical usage descritpion

There are two APIs available - one to get the list of iBeacons deployed at and airport, and the second to get details of an iBeacon. The typical use scenario for an app is as follows:

  • Retrieve the list of beacons at an airport before the day of travel through an airport (to get the most up to date list)
  • Setup region monitoring for the UUID and/or majorIds of the beacons relevant to your use case(s)
  • When the passenger's phone comes into proximity of a beacon, it will be woken up. The app can then do some 'Ranging' to get the details on the UUID/major/minor
  • Query the registry to get full details of the beacon from the registry
