Solution Overview

For effective real-time tracking, “best guess” methods won’t work. Aruba’s Asset Tracking solution provides location accuracy to approximately 3m/10ft that pinpoints the items being tracked within a defined area. The Aruba solution is also scalable as it uses BLE-enabled APs and low-cost BLE based Aruba Tags—which means you can easily add more tags as your needs expand.


As technology has evolved, so have the breadth of solutions when it comes to asset tracking. While the Aruba Tags are BLE-based, our wireless infrastructure supports a large variety of other  RTLS solutions, too. The choice to move forward with Aruba means that in phase one, you can select basic asset tracking, leverage your existing wireless infrastructure, and then support third-party tags and infrastructure, as needed.
