For applications like CRM tools, presence analytics, or location-aware services which need to continuously gather presence data of wireless clients, EnGenius Cloud Acess Points are capable of delivering realtime presence data to fulfill the requirement.
EnGenius Presence Service can have cloud managed APs continuously gathering 802.11 probe request frames sent by wireless clients and then sending the data to 3rd party servers configured in EnGenius Cloud.
In EnGeniusCloud, the configuration of presence service is at
General Settings > AP > Advanced Settings
Following parameters can be configured in the page:
The data sent by EnGenius Presence Services is basically in JSON format with following objects:
The server receives the data via an HTTP POST message. Access points and EnGenius Cloud services DO NOT keep any of presence data. Accordingly, if the server specified in the configuration is down or otherwise unreachable, the HTTP POST will fail, making the data inaccessible. EnGenius Cloud will not provide any notification of such failure.
