With every passing month, it seems that more electronic devices are touted as being Bluetooth enabled. And, while many people are excited about the advent of its new products, others are left scratching their heads wondering, “What is Bluetooth?”
Bluetooth mobile wireless
Bluetooth utilizes radio waves, in the non-licensed range of 2.4 Gigahertz. This system has been designed with the intention of providing a secure and an inexpensive way to connect with and exchange information between other devices alike, all without the need of wires.
What is Bluetooth
In addition to the Bluetooth wireless phone models, which are probably the most prevalent type of devices on the market, you can now also find its headphones and speakers. It is expected that other Bluetooth wireless audio and video products will continue to be brought to the marketplace.
With this type of advancement, it is conceivable that some day the only wires you will need to tame, will be the power cords that some of these devices will need for their power supply. That would be a welcomed change from the tangles of cords and wires that are common in home offices and entertainment areas.
One of the best features, is that all its enabled devices function on a standard protocol. This means that all transmission of data and voice signals between two of its devices, even if they are produced by different manufacturers, is straightforward and simple to implement.
It was the need for a standardized communication convention that prompted the development of Bluetooth
Some of the other advantages of Bluetooth are: data transfers that are fast; communication with other devices alike that are not in a direct line of sight (as required by the infra-red protocol); inexpensive circuitry and components; the ability to transmit both data and voice concurrently.
