Generally, Bluetooth gateway can be defined as the intermediary between any Internet of things platform and sensor. It works by taking data from these sensors or smart devices and converting it into Bluetooth. Then, it transmits the data to the Internet of things platform or Bluetooth agent.
The Bluetooth gateway can also be defined as an Ethernet gateway, which acts as a Bluetooth client due to the built-in modified software.
MOKOBlue Bluetooth gateway works by scanning and detecting all devices or sensors within the scope of the gateway. It allows all devices it detects to communicate and manage their communications through the central Internet of things platform.
When all Bluetooth clients approach the gateway, they will be notified; So they're C
It's easy to find. The following figure shows how the Bluetooth gateway works.
In order to build this gateway, we need to connect the electrical system first. When connecting the wires, please note that the standard sensor connection is different from the radio module connection. The reason is that most Ethernet modules do not share SPI with radio modules.
The next thing to do when building a gateway is to configure it. Make sure to select the port, MAC, and fixed IP address to use for the gateway at this stage. The MAC address you choose must be unique and cannot be used in other networks.
The Bluetooth gateway acts as a bridge between all Bluetooth devices and sensors or the Internet of things. In addition, the core of the cloud Internet of things can use Bluetooth as a bridge to communicate with devices. When you distribute Bluetooth devices in many different places, you need some data for analysis. This data should be on a shared server.
In this case, you can deploy the gateway in each location where the Bluetooth device is located. The Bluetooth gateway can act as a bridge by integrating data into a central location. The following figure shows the function of the Bluetooth gateway as a bridge.
