Check on the controller
#show ap debug ble-table ap-name <name> to display the beacons table
Apologize for asking an elementary question, but you would run that from Diagnostics/General/SSH Terminal, correct?
I'm clarifying because I don't believe my permission level allows shell access. (I get:
Note: Please refresh the page to re-connect Public key authentication is not supported For security purposes, the user needs to re-enter the password
Is there no other way to get the BLE UUID?
We need to have shell access to APs to run those command. I dont think we have anyother way to check the beacon table list.
OK, I'll see if I can have someone else run the command.
Let me ask you, Pavan, if I have the AP's BLE mode set to "beaconing" will I need to do anything else in order to pair a device with the beacon?
I keep reading about "the Meridian app" but not sure where that is accessed from.
AP 325 is inbuilt beacon (which acts as indiviudal beacon) when configured with meridian details it start sending the beacon info to controller and to meridian cloud. If it is IAP then it will send data directly to meridian cloud.
IAP30x >Meridian Cloud
If have you battery powered beacon and want to manage then you need USB power beacon plug in to APs.
We have meridian cloud (edit.meridianapps.com) where you could create iOS and Android apps that provide your visitors turn-by-turn directions, location and time-based push notifications, and other location-based services.
If you want to create account , please check with your Aruba accounts team, who could help you in getting account in meridian.
Pavan, does a Meridian account something that involves additional licensing fees?
We have different types of meridian subscriptions available, if you are looking for a trail I believe it will be valid for 3months (not sure exactly) and need to buy for full subscription.
Please check with your accounts team for more details.
I do not have the budget to pay for additional features.
So, just want to clarify: even if I have ble op mode set to "beaconing," that alone will not turn the ble beacon on?
(I have identified the beacon UUID #.)
Could you let me know why you want to enable beacon if you are not using meridian?
The becon capability exists to send data to Meridian. It cannot be used otherwise...
sleeper, you may want to look into the Aruba battery powered beacons. They would allow your third party app to receive a basic, unmanaged beacon's signal.
Personally I thought the AP325's beacon would send out beacons even when not connected to Meridian, but I could be wrong - mine is connected to Meridian on the demo trial.
The Meridian management apps are all iOS apps from their play store, but you have to sign in to an active Meridian account to use the app.
