Be Location Ready with Aruba Meridian Wayfinding

Hospitals, airports, museums, theme parks, large resorts, stadiums, retail and conference centres are advancing with the deployment of indoor location positioning systems. The ability to pinpoint a smartphone inside a venue is significantly enhancing the visitor experience.

Aruba Meridian Wayfinding is currently in action at the Levi Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, Santa Clara, where attendees can be precisely directed to their seat anywhere in the 68,000-seat stadium.

How Aruba Meridian Wayfinding works?

Aruba Meridian is a simple subscription-based licensing mobile cloud-based SaaS (software as a service) application, that requires a high quality, high performing wireless network, Bluetooth beacon technology and a user’s smartphone to triangulate a person’s location to 1-3m accuracy within venues.

The Aruba Meridian app builder guides users to produce a unique customised application for their venue or they can use the SDK options to integrate the solution into a current application already in use.

The high performing optimal Wi-Fi network has the ability to track smartphones in real time, anonymously representing each device or person as a blue dot on a map of the venue. Low energy Bluetooth beacons with a limited range of 75m can be deployed to communicate with any smartphones in range.

Together these technologies offer tangible benefits for both customer and venue.
