Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or Bluetooth Smart, is a secure wireless technology that uses only a fraction of the power consumption of standard Bluetooth. BLE has micro-location capabilities, transmitting up to a range of 50 metres and facilitating highly accurate proximity-based services.

GPS is widely used for location-based services and most commonly in satellite navigation systems. However GPS cannot pinpoint proximity to the same accuracy as BLE, doesn’t work indoors and drains device batteries within a very short period of usage.

BLE is also the technology used by iBeacons, which were first supported within iOS 7. Integration with iBeacons allows push notifications to be delivered to devices based on their proximity, enabling a range of exciting and interactive communication and marketing opportunities.
