Enabling the Enterprise With the Reality of IoT: BluFi Launches at DEMO

Bluetooth to Wi-Fi Gateway Provides Low Cost, Scalable and Cloud Management Solution

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL and SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2014) - DEMO Fall - Today, Bluvision, Inc. (www.bluvision.com) unveils BluFi at DEMO in San Jose. BluFi is a Bluetooth beacon to Wi-Fi gateway that enables enterprises with the ability to manage assets and realize significant cost savings in operations through remote monitoring and alerts via Bluetooth iBeacons.

Gartner predicts that there will be 26 billion IoT devices in use worldwide by 2020. While the enterprise has been challenged with effectively implementing IoT, BluFi bridges the gap and provides a scalable, low cost solution that turns IoT a reality for many that want to leverage its benefits.

With the launch of BluFi, BluVision BEEKS have also realized upgrades with up to eight built-in sensors detecting ambient light, motion, sound, temperature, humidity, height, all in real-time. With BluFi, enterprises can use existing mobile and software systems to set up, manage, and receive alerts and data from up to 1-million beacons.

"IoT has had many challenges in being realized in the enterprise market," said Jimmy Buchheim, CEO of BluVision, Inc. "We are solving many of the connectivity issues with BluFi and eliminating the need for smartphone or tablet applications to be constantly monitored to get information. We are giving power back to IT departments and enterprises, to devote more time and money to the bigger needs of their business."

BluFi's platform enables enterprises with the power to manage beacons in various use cases including:

  • Facility Management - BluFi can detect any sensors embedded in Bluetooth beacon tracking tools to provide real-time data and updates on the status of assets. This allows IT and other departments to make appropriate adjustments.
  • Indoor Navigation - BluFi can detect and receive alerts from up to 1-million beacons. This can be applied for commercial and private enterprise use. Cases include retail customers find their way around a market (to find the products they need), an airport managing moveable assets and monitoring terminals, or around tradeshows locating booths and assets that need monitoring. 
  • Inventory Management - Keeping track of stocked and moving inventory, as well as internal warehouse assets that may need monitoring.

Jim Peters, CTO of SITA, the world's leading specialist in air transport communications and IT, said: "Bluvision beacon management solutions are already showing opportunities in the area of HVAC for cost reductions using this sensor technology in airports by detecting and managing fluctuations in real time, reporting to control systems which can then be used to adjust and stabilize air conditioning for maximum energy efficiency and traveller's comfort. It's one of many early advantages for beacons among the in-terminal navigation and contextual triggers Bluvision is enabling together with SITA's Common-use beacon registry."

BluFi can also be managed by BluZone™, BluVision's beacon management platform and suite of Bluetooth-enabled beacons. BluZone enables enterprises to understand and connect their mobile apps and platforms more closely with the physical world around them.
