iBeacon is a feature that comes with Apple's mobile device iOS. The way it works is that devices equipped with Bluetooth communication use BLE technology to send their own unique ID to their surroundings.The application that receives that ID takes some action based on that ID.
Eddystone is an open source Bluetooth beacon platform from Google. Eddystone uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology for peer-to-peer communication.
SKYLAB Bluetooth beacons are supported in both iBeacon and Eddystone modes. It can meet the diverse needs of users' practical applications.
Users can flexibly select two different modes of beacons, iBeacon and Eddystone. iBeacon and Eddystone configuration parameters can be modified by SKYLAB according to the actual application requirements.
The modification of iBeacon and Eddystone mode configuration parameters are not the same. The following describes the differences of SKYLAB VG05 beacon configuration modification.
The left side is the introduction of iBeacon mode configuration. The right side is the configuration introduction of Eddystone mode.

(1) Configuration parameter modification of VG05 in iBeacon mode:
Users can modify parameters such as Bluetooth beacon name, UUID, User service data, Major, Minor, Measured Power, transmit power, broadcast interval, password, etc. in the APP.
（2)Modification of VG05's configuration parameters in Eddystone mode
Users can modify parameters such as URL, Other Setting (UID, EID, TLM) in the APP.
