I would like to find out whether Aruba ALE can support high availability? If yes, is there any reference guide?
Hi Airheads community, I have a question about Aruba location services
Aruba tags and beacons can be located by android and IOS devices, but what if I need to build an app in a server that reads the location (every minute) of each beacon and store the data in a database? there an API for Python or .NET? or is it obligatory to pass through Meridian?
thanks and regards
I am confuse respec to a implementation of Aruba Tag (BLE).
I know that i need Aps with BLE integrated for comunicating with aruba tag cloud, But Why I can´t integrate Aruba tag with normally aruba beacon?
Y have this beacons propagate in a build and i don´t have ap/ble.
Is there a way for use tag with beacon and sensor in a IAP architecture?
without AP with BLE integrate

For asset tracking (Aruba Tags) you will need 'observers' that can hear your tag. Your tag is just transmitting, just like Aruba beacons. Both are not connected to the network.
In the case of beacons for wayfinding or proximity, the mobile phone with App is the observer. It hears the beacons and from that information can determine it's own location.
With tags, the observers are BLE enabled access-points, which can be both Instant or controller APs from the 3xx series with built-in BLE radio or 2xx series with a USB port and USB beacon that acts like BLE radio.
Because the AP is connected to the network, it can report the received signals from the tags and the Meridian cloud can correlate that to a location of the tag if it hears the tag on multiple APs.
So the reason you need APs is that you need devices that can receive BLE signals from the tags.
I have been appointed the Meridian deployment guy at my workplace. With my Meridian deployment I am looking to do much of the work myself.
My question is with regards to vectorising the maps. How do I vectorise the maps myself?
I have read online and online forums say that all I need to do is open the floor plan in Adobe Illustrator and save the file. Can you guys confirm if you are able to vectorise the maps on your own ? Is someone from Aruba able to confirm the process they use?
Hi, Vectorizing a map yourself will take up a lot of effort, better keep it through the Meridian t...
Vectorizing a map yourself will take up a lot of effort, better keep it through the Meridian team.
That being said, you can do some work on vectorizing a map yourself, but there are a lot of layers (the map advanced formatting on Meridian will give you an idea: http://docs.meridianapps.com/developers/map_layer_styling) that you would have to pay attention to and format and set in the right order. Assuming you have the right map vectorized, you will still need to save it in the right format and upload it using the Meridian maps APIs.
A good start would be to download an already vectorized map, check it out and edit it, then upload it to a new building to test your results.
Otherwise, stick to vectorizing through the Meridian team by creating your building/floor and then requesting the conversion by sending an email with your map file and map ID reference that you've created - instructions appear when you create that new floor on Meridian (it's free as long as you have an active subscription).
I've already provisioned my IAP to the central, the question is how do i make sure the same AP can be integrated with Airwave so that heatmap and clarity can be generated?
Can i depend ALE to be solely integrated it with Aruba Central without using the airwave as the deployment involve outdoor public areas and no floor plan is available...

Central has clarity, you simply need a token (not sure if it is still in BETA but your local Aruba rep can tell you).
I do not believe requires visualRF floorplans but you can definitely use ALE with central as there is an option to enable it.
Either I read somewhere or someone told me that a single ALE 2.x server will support up to 2000 access points and 100 controllers depending on the size of the appliance or VM.
With respect to the controllers, is this physical controllers or could this be Aruba Instant Virtual Controllers?
For example, if a customer had 200 shops each with a single Aruba instant in them, does this mean that they would need 2 ALE servers to support the 200 virtual controllers they have?
Mike, We could add around 100 controllers and 8 Airwave in single ALE server but shoul...
We could add around 100 controllers and 8 Airwave in single ALE server but should not cross the APs limit mentioned in the server sizing guide.
So if you are planning to add individual VCs then max we could add 100 entries in single ALE.
Before we start using Meridian-based wayfinding in our sites, my CyberSecurity team is requiring a security review of Meridian. This is standard practice for us when an internal solution uses a third party for any aspect of the solution. One of the questions they've asked me is if any Personally Identifiable Information is sent to or stored in Meridian.
I know that Meridian must know about the mobile devices commuicating with it through the wayfinding app but I don't what specific information is transferred to Meridian from each device. Is it just a device MAC address, IMEI or other unique ID or is there more information, like user information or phone number?
Thank you in advance for helping me understand.

I'm the Meridian team's technical writer. We've had some questions about Meridian and personally identifiable information come up before, so I thought I'd take a little time to explain how all of this works.
In short: Meridian-powered apps do not send personally identifiable information to anyone, whether the Meridian server or a third-party.
Meridian-powered apps use Bluetooth signals generated from Aruba Beacons to calculate a user's current location and also to send notifications--what we call campaigns.
When Aruba Beacons are configured for proximity, they can either send a notification message to the end-user's device or send data along to a third-party server. These campaigns are configured by the Meridian administrator for a particular location. In some cases, for example, a Meridian-powered app may have a user login. A campaign could send that user ID to a third-party endpoint when that user enters a specific area in a location.
By default, though, when a campaign is triggered, no personally identifiable data is sent.
On iOS, the Meridian-powered app sends its identifierForVendor value. On Android, it sends its advertising ID. These are used for the purposes of cooldowns, so that a user doesn't continue to receive the same notification over and over again. These two values can't be used to personally identify someone.
I hope this helps answer your questions. If not, I'm happy to clarify anything that isn't clear.

I put my placemarks on the map, but when i put the preview it shows only the option "View on Map", I saw on the help tab and on different applications that when you preview or enter the Place mark it shows "Get directions to here" how do switch to this option, I don´t know if its because my routing its wrong or if it is on the different options that the placemarks have, if anyone can help out with this one it would be apreciated. Thanks

It's possible to import event feeds in XML, RSS, iCal, and JSON formats.
We have some documentation about importing feeds into the Editor here:

i works with the meridian editor
in the placemark's options, i can see a "landmark" option (see attached picture)
the documentation doesn't tell anything about what a "landmark" is
does anyone know this feature ?

Our Meridian team has taken a look at your screenshots and determined that this isn't a bug. It's expected behavior for different devices to display the map differently. Even the same device with different resolution settings would display things differently.
I hope this helps address your concerns.
