Configure Beacons for Optimal Positioning Accuracy

For optimal positioning performance the recommend transmitting frequency of the beacon should be set to 100ms/10Hz and the transmit power level to 0dBm.

Fathom Tags

Fathom Tags can be configured in Fathom Control or through the API

Third Party Beacons

Third Party Beacons should be configured in their own configuration tool. Configuration may require investigation into the third party beacons' beaconing definitions as the beacons can display their parameters in a different format.

 

In the example below, a table corresponds the TX power level to the decimal value (0dBm) that we would prefer. We then would have to input the appropriate TX power level into the device configuration tool alongside the beaconing interval (100ms) .
