What does it mean, 'pax'? No - it's not 'peace', in this technological context. Pax here does mean: "persons approximately".
It's some sort of 'industry jargon'. You better should say: "people counter".

Depending on available WiFi and BLE signals around, it could be, based on statisticsl methods, calculated, how may people are gathering in a crowd nearby the detection device. Not the individual MACs are stored, but the sums of those, being all together and also their changings over time - all live repeated in minutes!

Note: It's not about individual tracking!

This could be helpful, generally spoken, in all places, where people are gathering, as a more or less, big crowd and it could be useful (e.g. for public services, shopping malls, public transport companies, etc.) to know (approximately) how much people there are together.
