Wireless Field Day wrapped up last week with an incredible visit to Levi’s Stadium, home of my San Francisco 49ers. As both a rabid football and Wi-Fi fan, it doesn’t get any better than this to culminate an already awesome week. Aruba Networks and Levi’s Stadium have set a new bar in terms of connectivity, engagement with the fan base and building for the mobile generation. Mobile Engagement at the stadium is done leveraging a custom app that has been location enabled using Aruba’s Meridian SDK and a hybrid Wi-Fi and low energy bluetooth (BLE) infrastructure. If you aren’t familiar with beacons and low energy bluetooth, please refer to my previous posts on the subject as they will serve as a good primer.<
Seeing a beacon infrastructure in place was pretty awesome! There’s a lot of planning that goes into that setup.
