Airnet developer Platform
Aironet Developer Platform (ADP) is a programmable application development platform that’s designed for quick prototyping and on-boarding to Cisco DevNet and its marketplace. Paired with the Cisco Aironet 3800 Series Access Point, the developer platform allows you to develop third-party applications and technology that you can place on a generic Aironet 3800 module for internal use or commercialization through DevNet. Or to put it another way; if you can imagine it, you can do it.
Thanks to applications that you design yourself, or ones that come from a third-party, your wireless network is poised to be a more powerful tool by leveraging the AP itself to host third-party application or technology. No longer a device that just provides cutting-edge Wi-Fi, your access point is now a development platform. Whether it’s creating applications that allow you to interact with customers on a more granular level, or real-time monitoring of product inventory in a warehouse, there are thousands of uses for the ADP framework that can be tailored to a customer’s wishes.
For lot of healthcare to retail, there are many use cases being developed with the ADP. In one potential retail use case, a partner can leverage ADP to develop an application that dynamically changes product prices in stores via a centralized server. This saves retailers both time and money as workers no longer have to spend time walking up and down long aisles and changing individual price tags. The price change application can be detailed enough so that the prices of specific items will be updated. That means these prices can be raised or lowered via a few clicks whenever a sale is occurring. Also, by utilizing the existing Cisco infrastructure, a dedicated Ethernet drop for this solution is not necessary.
