Bluetooth is a wireless communication technology that can be used for close range of data transmission from one digital device to another. It relies on short-range radio frequency, and any device that incorporates the technology can communicate as long as it is within the required distance.
It is essentially a one-to-one wireless connection that uses 4 GHz band radio waves. This is the same frequency which other wireless technologies in the home or office, such as cordless phones and WiFi routers use.
- Bluetooth offers a uniform structure for a wide range of devices to connect and communicate with each other.
- It has achieved global acceptance and almost any Bluetooth enabled device, anywhere in the world can connect to another Bluetooth enabled device nearby.
- Low power consumption when compared to wifi and other such wireless systems.
- It also costs much less to implement.
