BLUETOOTH

Bluetooth is another industry group developing a specification for low-cost, short-range radio links between mobile computers, cameras, and other portable in-home devices. Bluetooth technology is the result of cooperation between leaders in the telecommunications and computer industries. It is the code name for a technology specification for small form factor, low-cost, short-range radio links between mobile PCs, mobile phones, and other portable devices. It enables home networking users to connect a wide range of computing and telecommunications devices easily and simply, without the need to buy, carry, or connect cables. It delivers opportunities for rapid ad hoc connections, and the possibility of automatic, unconscious, connections between devices. It virtually eliminates the need to purchase additional or proprietary cabling to connect individual devices. Because Bluetooth can be used for a variety of purposes, it will also potentially replace multiple cable connections via a single radio link. Bluetooth is being promoted and has been adopted by a group of companies called the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). This includes promoter companies 3Com, Ericsson, IBM, Intel, Lucent, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, and Toshiba and 1,665 adopter companies (at the time of writing).

Technology Overview

The Bluetooth technology is an open specification for wireless communication of data and voice. It is based on a low-cost short-range radio link, built into a 9 x 9 mm microchip, facilitating protected ad hoc connections for stationary and mobile communication environments.
