What is iBeacon?

iBeacon is a device to broadcast Bluetooth® signals that a smartphone can receive and understand.

These broadcasts unlock the potential to communicate with audiences at your chosen location. Right at the time of their visit. This makes iBeacon the perfect tool for creating micro-location and contextual user experiences.

Once you’ve added the GCell Standard Developer Kit (SDK) to your app you can understand their proximity to nearby locations and objects. You can also recognise a range of app user insights including location, movements and habits.

This data can be used to build a new generation of magical mobile apps and user experiences that connect our physical and digital worlds.

GCell offers a range of solar iBeacon and long-life iBeacon designed for large-scale commercial and enterprise use. All GCell Beacons are certified Apple iBeacon™ compatible.
