While the MOCA platform for iBeacon is still officially listed as a Beta product it looks like a fairly complete product from our initial assessment.
Although MOCA sell their own branded iBeacons, the MOCA platform appears to support any hardware conforming to Apples iBeacon specification as Beacons are entered via the MOCA dashboard using the familiar UUID, Major and Minor values.
When you sign up to the Beta program you’ll receive an email to let you know your on the Beta waiting list although in our case we were granted access less than an hour later.
The MOCA dashboard has a very clean UI and the entire interface was very snappy as we flicked around the various options. Given the background of MOCAs parent InnoQuant in Big Data, we’re expecting great things from the analytics side of the platform.
If you’re in the market for an iBeacon platform, we’d definitely recommend you give MOCA a try.
We’ve attempted to summarise the key features of the MOCA platform in our quick feature review table below. Let us know if you think there’s anything else we should include.
