    iBeacon technology, made possible by BLE, enables mobile application developers to base their applications on proximity. We would like to know how proximity can be integrated in the development of mobile applications. In the thesis we take a deeper look at iBeacon technology where monitoring and ranging are examined and the differences between location and proximity explained. Available options used for the configuration of iBeacons are also presented. Then two existing iBeacon applications are analyzed. Following that different use cases are listed and sorted into three groups. Large scale iBeacon deployment options are presented and examined. Lastly an Android and an iOS application which use iBeacon technology for displaying patient data are developed. A comparison between the development of iBeacon applications on both platforms is made based on the development of the applications. At the end the developed application are analyzed with the use of a SWOT analysis.
