Edge Relay

The BC510 is a customisable Bluetooth 4.2 gateway that intelligently aggregates and relays data at the edge of the network. When used in conjunction with the BlueCats Loop Location Engine, it can be deployed at scale to determine the real-time location of Bluetooth LE tags.

Leveraging the power of edge computing technology, the BC510 can process thousands of Bluetooth LE tag signals simultaneously and transmit the captured data over Ethernet (PoE) or Wi-Fi.

The BC510 is for indoor use in stock format, but is easy to house in an IP-rated enclosure for outdoor or industrial environments.

Simple Deployment
  • Compact size conveniently integrates into any environment
  • Uniquely configurable via a web interface
Manageable
  • Over-the-air updates (firmware)
  • Device diagnostics (performance, status, and more)
Powerful & Flexible
  • Process thousands of Bluetooth LE tag signals in real time
  • Send data to cloud or on-premise service with MQTT, UDP or HTTP(S)
Broadcast Range
  • Proximity detection, line of sight: up to 400 m
  • Normal operation: 100 m
