ZF Openmatics Support for ZF BLE Tag Communication

You can manage ZF TAGs and implement BLEBluetooth Low Energy. The BLE functionality is offered by Bluetooth® to enable devices to run for long durations with low power consumption. location service using the third-party ZF Openmatics. To support this feature, Aruba Instant APs with built-in IoTInternet of Things.

Configuring ZF Openmatics

The ZF TAG data scans and provides feedback to the ZF server if the ZF endpoint is configured in the IoTInternet of Things. IoT refers to the internetworking of devices that are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity features allowing data exchange over the Internet. profiles.

Configure the IoT transport profile as follows to enable ZF Openmatics support on the Aruba Instant AP:

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the end point type for ZF Tags:

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") #endpointtype ZF

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the end point URLUniform Resource Locator. URL is a global address used for locating web resources on the Internet. for ZF Tags:

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") # endpointURL https://app.detagtive.com/backend

 

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the username and password for ZF Tags:

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") #username <username>

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") #password <password>

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the transport interval for ZF Tags:

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") #transportInterval 60

The default is 300 seconds. The recommended value for ZF is 60 seconds.

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configure the payload content for ZF Tags:

(host) (IoT Data Profile "<profile-name>") #payloadContent ZF-Tag

The following CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command applies the IoTInternet of Things. IoT refers to the internetworking of devices that are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity features allowing data exchange over the Internet. profile on the Instant AP:
