What is XRange2000?
XRange2000 is a long range Bluetooth® transmitter that can be used for Bluetooth® communications or Bluetooth® advertising. It covers a very long range (1000m and can be extended to 2000m) when compared to normal cheap Bluetooth dongles currently available in the market. Unfortunately, the cheap dongles are claimed to cover a 100-meter radius, but they actually do not cover a fraction of that. The XRange2000 can cover a very long range and it's compatible with BlueMagnet if you're looking to use it for Bluetooth advertising.
XRange2000 for Bluetooth Advertising
The XRange2000 Bluetooth® transmitter has a long range that can reach to 2000 meters, but if you're intending to use it for Bluetooth advertising, be advised that it will NOT be able to cover that distance because the Bluetooth® radios of the recipient cell-phones are much weaker than the XRange2000 (to minimize power consumption). That's why the Bluetooth Advertising range will not be 2000m. According to our field tests, we were able to deliver advertisements to phones at a distance of 250 meters far from our advertising hotspot. This means that by using XRange2000 with BlueMagnet, you can cover a range with radius of 250 meters. That's a circle with 500 meters in diameter which is considered impressive to accomplish using Bluetooth. By combining the power of the XRange2000 with BlueMagnet, you can send FREE Bluetooth advertisements to as many recipients as possible.
