Transport Protocol And Data Format

 

The transport protocol is MQTT. Here's a sample data.

 

{

 

"id":"ABCDEF123456",

 

"raw_beacons_data":"F4B85ED84CB7123456781234123412341234123412347DAD33B1C6FF41;0117C538C0CF23A01AF0232A45189C0E323FB773F5EF00100020B3FFB2;"

 

}

 

It's a json data. The key "id" is the MAC address for the receiver. The key named "raw_beacons_data" contains the beacon datas. The iBeacon datas are splitted by semicolon. The sample data F4B85ED84CB7123456781234123412341234123412347DAD33B1C6FF41
