Beacon Technology

Proximity Beacons

Radius Networks RadBeacon proximity beacons are the industry’s first multi-beacons, providing concurrent support for both iBeacon™ and AltBeacon™ proximity technologies, and seamless proximity services across iOS, Android, and other emerging mobile environments.

RadBeacons are available with the widest range of power and packaging options, including AC-power, USB-power, long-life battery, indoor and outdoor, weatherproof ruggedized enclosures.

RadBeacon has been designed and certified by Radius Networks to meet Apple performance standards. iBeacon-enabled apps running on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch may be developed.

RadBeacon has been designed and certified by Radius Networks to conform to the AltBeacon proximity standard and is compatible with AltBeacon-enabled applications.

AltBeacon Spec

The Open and Interoperable Proximity Beacon Specification

Because there is no open and interoperable specification for proximity beacons, Radius Networks has authored the AltBeacon specification as a proposal for how to solve this problem.

More Info


A Proximity beacon community resource, WikiBeacon uses crowd-souced data to plot known beacons around the world. Search for a particular beacon by UUID, Major, and Minor, or explore our dynamic world map displaying beacons discovered using Radius Networks' Locate app for iOS and AltBeacon locate for Android.
