Multi-tenant Beacons

Multi-tenant Beacons are location Beacons that are shared between one location and one or more other locations.

How Multi-tenant Beacons Work

In some situations, it's useful to share location Beacons between different locations.

Multi-tenant Beacons only support location Beacons. Proximity Beacons can't be shared between locations.

For example, if you're a hospital, you may want to create a Meridian-powered app for your staff and another app for your patients. By using multi-tenant Beacons, you could provide blue dot location-aware routing to your staff and patients using the same location Beacon deployment.

Multi-tenant Beacons uses a parent/child model for deployment. Once a parent location has been enabled by the Meridian team, any number of child locations can share those location Beacons using either the same or a different map image.

Child locations must use either the same map image as a parent location or an image that is the same dimensions as the parent map.

Multi-Tenant Beacons Limitations

There are several limitations to multi-tenant Beacons that are worth mentioning.

  • Multi-tenant Beacons only use location Beacons.
  • Map images can be shared between parent and child locations, but routing and placemarks aren't shared.
  • Campaigns aren't shared between parent and child locations.
  • In the Meridian Editor, Beacons Management isn't available for child locations.
  • Aruba Tags aren't currently available for child locations.
