1Q 2017 | IN-4422

There have been a lot of trials and PoCs for BLE beacon technology over the last 3 years, with many lessons learned along the way. One of the biggest barriers has been the interoperability of the necessary components required for a successful customer-facing solution. ABI Research has always urged companies to look at the overall solution before moving forward.
