MB5000 & MB6000 IoT Bluetooth® Bridges

Zebra Bluetooth IoT Bridges Gather Critical Location Data for Actionable Business Insights

Edge-data and IoT technologies are transforming today’s industrial networks. Zebra Bluetooth® low-energy products are inexpensive relative to other active beacon solutions while providing all the capabilities of these technologies in an easy-to-manage solution. Zebra Bluetooth IoT bridges leverage Bluetooth low-energy and Wi-Fi technologies and work in tandem with Zebra Bluetooth Beacons to provide real-time location data to help companies maximize business efficiencies.

MB5000 and MB6000

The Zebra MB5000 Fixed-Location IoT Bridge

Easy to Deploy and Manage

Zebra MB5000 Fixed-Location IoT Bridges are compact, aesthetically pleasing units which are easy to configure, install and manage. Zebra’s IoT bridges capture Bluetooth low-energy beacon signals which are then filtered and backhauled over Wi-Fi. Leveraging a pre-existing Wi-Fi network simplifies deployment and minimizes infrastructure costs.

Fully Configurable

Fully configurable to meet custom requirements, Zebra Bluetooth IoT bridges deliver critical data for companies to analyze and convert into actionable business insights. Companies use the raw data gathered by Zebra bridges to identify asset location, improve workflows, and optimize productivity and profitability.

Secure and Convenient

Protected with the best-of-breed security protocols, Zebra IoT bridges are easy to manage securely using 2.5GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi with WPA/WPA2 personal and enterprise encryption. This allows configuration changes and network updates to be pushed remotely and en masse from a server without needing on-site support.


The Zebra MB6000 Mobile IoT Bridge

Mobile and Wearable to Extend Asset Visibility

Zebra MB6000 Mobile IoT Bridges are secure and operate automatically. Users need only wear them. Mobile bridges offer the added value of wearable mobility to extend your asset visibility. Mobile bridges work with fixed-location bridges to form a comprehensive location-data solution configurable to your unique requirements.


Zebra MB5000 & MB6000 IoT Bluetooth Bridges Deliver the Data Your Enterprise Can Use to Give Your Operations a Performance Edge Over the Competition.
