    Hi,

    Does AP 315(not IAP 315) using Controller 7205 support BLE scanning feature?​

    After following "https://community.arubanetworks.com/browse/articles/blogviewer?blogkey=9db04a8e-d8cb-4a63-bbe7-e90f069f9880"

    We are able to see "AR_AP_NOTIFICATION" messages from all APs. We send ACK message as per attahced link (https://github.com/lukaskaplan/aruba-rtls/blob/master/rtls_server.php)(https://community.arubanetworks.com/aruba/attachments/aruba/unified-wired-wireless-access/23715/1/RTLS_integrationv6.docx) , but still we did not get any RTLS payload from APs.

    Sample AR_AP_NOTIFICATIONmessage:

    00150ff201000000808db7c728380000ecace544048077e30ba2e25ed38cdce123e79dfe


    We see only "Beaconing" BLE mode in mobility controller. After enabling "Beaconing" in mobility controller, APs are emitting beacons. But we don't see BLE RTLS data(we are looking for our beacon RSSI,UUID) from APs. Our asset Tag(ibeacon) is physically  placed next to AP.

    Please help us.

    You need to setup IOT transport profile to setup BLE telemetry towards an external application.
    A good reference to find how-to can be found on: https://iot-utilities.arubademo.de/
