Does Airwave gives beacon based heatmaps

Hi There,

 

Let me know if anyone knows whether Airwave gives beacon based predictive heatmaps for deployment.

You will need to clarify the context of your question, and what 'beacon-based heatmaps' are? To some degree beacons are used to identify the ESSID of neighbors and other indicators

We can not deploy beacons in Airwave VisualRF, beacons are used to increase client location accuracy and number of beacons and distance successvie beacons deployed is based on your enviroment.

 

For better location accuracy, normally successive beacons are placed <=40ft apart.
Beacon distances may vary based on various factors (e.g. path vs. area
model, reflective vs. non. reflective environments, varying ceiling heights, etc.)

Hi Jhoward,

Aruba Bluetooth beacon devices for asset management, as we deploy the APs as per predictive heatmap for complete coverage, like that I am asking how to deploy or mount the beacon devices for complete coverage.

avan answered your question then. I was thinking you wanted mapping off wifi beacons (the transmitting of beacon frames), not BLE (the hardware BLE beacons) heh.
