Bluetooth technology – Bluetooth is a wireless advanced technology which is used in exchanging data between several different electronic devices. By using this technology, the easy and quick connections between electronic devices can be possible. It is a specification (IEEE 802.15.1) which is used in low power radio communications to connect computers, phones and other devices in short distance without the use of wire. The wireless signals with Bluetooth in small distances which is usually up to 30 feet (10 meters).
Concept of Bluetooth technology – The name “Bluetooth” technology is analogous to ‘blue eyed’ product. The basic idea behind this technology is to set rid of thick black cables running between monitor, keyboard, mouse, modem, printer, and telephone line. Bluetooth removes cables from almost everywhere such as TV,VCR, laptops, fax machines, scanners, and digital cameras. In fact, Bluetooth is a small and cheap radio chip which is designed to replace cables and transmitting it at a special frequency to a ‘receiver’ Bluetooth chip. This receiver then gives the information to a computer, phone or any other device.
This type of technology connects maximum eight devices all together and each electronic device provides a unique 48 bit address from the IEEE 802 standard with the connections being made point to point or multi point.
