Hello Alberto,
as I know a BLE device such as the BLE112 supports multiple connections.
What's not possible per spec is, that a peripherals is advertising while it is connected.
So if you are connected with an e.g. iPhone and you want to discover your peripheral with another iPhone the second iPhone will not be able to see it. Once the peripheral was already discovered and you know the UUID of this particular peripheral you should be able to connect.

I have never tried this but I know that there are configuration parameters in the BLE112 SDK where you can define the max. number of connections of the module.

Hope this helps,
Michael.

hello,

if ble112 supports multiple connections, but you can't connect if already connected to a device, so how can you connect to another IOS devices. How can you use this multiple connections feature?

Thanks

Hello ZSolt,
have you already tried this?
I'll try to check if this is possible.

Cheers,
Michael.

I asked Jeff from Bluegiga, you can do it only if the ios device acting a slave and your ble device is the master, but that can use lot of power, or you make your ble device as a advertising non connecting beacon. Multiple connection is possible between ble dongle as master and other ble slave devices, but not IOS devices. Kind of frustrating...and I'm also having some problem with bgsript.
