Configures Eddystone beacon payload parameters. Configure these parameters only if the Bluetooth radio interface‘s operational mode is set to ‘le-beacon‘, and the beacon‘s emitted transmission pattern is set to either ‘eddystone-url1‘ or ‘eddystone-ulr2‘.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points – AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h, AP7602, AP7612, AP7632, AP7662, AP8432, AP8533


eddystone [calibration-rssi <-127-127>|url [1|2] <WORD>]


eddystone [calibration-rssi|url [1|2] <WORD>]
eddystone [calibration-rssi <-127-127>| url [1|2] <WORD>] If the Beacon transmission pattern has been set to either ‘eddystone-url1‘ or ‘eddystone-url2‘, configure the following Eddystone parameters:
  • calibration-rssi – Configures the Eddystone beacon measured calibration signal strength, from -127 to 127 dBm, at 0 meters. Mobile devices can approximate their distance to beacons based on received signal strength. However, distance readings can fluctuate since they depend on several external factors. The closer you are to a beacon, the more accurate the reported distance. This setting is the projected calibration signal strength at 0 meters.
    • <-127-127> – Specify a value from -127 to 127 dBm. The default value is -19 dBm.
  • url [1|2] <WORD> – Configures the Eddystone URL
    The following keyword is common to the ‘eddystone-url1‘ and ‘eddystone-url2‘ keywords:
    • <WORD> – Enter a 64 character maximum eddystone-URL1/eddystone-URL2. The URL must be 18 characters or less once auto-encoding is applied. URL encoding is used when placing text in a query string to avoid confusion with the URL itself. It is typically used when a browser sends data to a Web server.
