Will Beacons Replace RFID?

  • Fabien

    Do you think beacon can also be used to detect object crossing a line (as rfid) ?

    I agree with what Davika said. From a wider perspective iBeacon technology, GPS, NFC and RFID are all technologies that support proximity services. And while beacons might not entirely replace any of these technologies, there are some scenarios in which it best fror the businesses to combine iBeacon technology with one of the other technologies.
