APB Auto-Deploy will automatically configure AP Beacons when Beacons Management is enabled for a location. APB Auto-Deploy can configure Beacons Locations.
When Beacons Management is enabled for a location, ALL undeployed AP Beacons in that location will be configured for that location and available to be placed on a map.
The high-level tasks to complete are;
1a. Obtain list of APs and their respective Wired/BLE MAC addresses.
1b. Obtain mapping of physical location of AP beacons to configure (AirWave is the preferred platform to obtain physical AP locations)
2. Configure Beacons Management
3. Place AP beacons on Meridian map

APB Auto-Deploy will only deploy and configure AP Beacons. Battery-powered Beacons cannot be Auto-Deployed.
Beacons Management Requirement
To enable APB Auto-Deploy, Beacons Management needs to be enabled for your location.
Please go to Configure Beacon Management and Asset Tracking for more information on how to do this for your particular Instant/AOS rev.
After Beacons Management is configured, the infrastructure will send Meridian the list of known AP Beacons to Meridian, and will populate the Beacons list.
This can take up-to 30 minutes to fully populate
