Location-based services (LBS)

LANCOM access points are able to work as LBS clients with an LBS server. In this case, they report any BLE clients within range to the LBS server, which can then offer location-based services to those clients. As of LCOS LX 5.30, an HTTP interface is supported.

Using the HTTP interface, access points can send LBS data directly to a freely configurable HTTP endpoint. The data is sent in JSON format, which ensures easy processing at the receiving end.

Note: In order for the access point to collect BLE data, the BLE feature has to be switched on separately. Please refer to Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Location based services.
