    Hi!

     

    In order to apply the aruba asset tracking solution do i need to use the aruba tags with aruba wlan infrastructure only, or can i use aruba tags with 3rd party ble enabled APs?

     

    Thanks

    you need aruba asset tags along with meridian asset and map subscription.

    Thanks for the answer!

    But it does not address my main question and concern that is whether i can use the aruba tags, the aruba meridian and map subscription and 3rd party APs.

     

    Because as far as i am concerned you cannot use the asset tracking solution without ble enabled APs.

    Hi Aryap,

    You can’t use arubatags, the aruba meridian and map subscription with 3rd party APs. At least, as per documentation and my current knowledge.

    You need a dedicated Aruba infrastructure if you want to make this ecosystem work.
