Over recent years, the market for wireless communications has enjoyed tremendous growth. Wireless technology now reaches or is capable of reaching virtually every location on the face of the earth. Hundreds of millions of people exchange information every day using pagers, cellular telephones, and other wireless communication products. With tremendous success of wireless telephony and messaging services, it is hardly surprising that wireless communication is beginning to be applied to the realm of personal and business computing. No longer bound by the harnesses of wired networks, people will be able to access and share information on a global scale nearly anywhere they venture.

he !." #H$ %ndustrial, &cientific, and 'edical (%&') band is poised for strong growth. *ueling this growth are two emerging wireless technologies + Wireless ,ersonal.rea Networking (W,.N) and Wireless /ocal .rea Networking (W/.N). dominant W,.N technology is a short-range wireless technology called 0luetooth. he

1esigned principally for cable-replacement applications, most 0luetooth implementations support a range of up to 23 m and speeds of up to 433 5b6sec for data or synchronous voice transmission. 0luetooth is ideal for applications such as wireless headsets, wireless synchroni$ation of ,ersonal 1igital .ssistants (,1.s) with computers, and wireless peripherals such as printers or keyboards.

.utomatic communication between various devices within a small area in a house or an office makes it possible to provide uniDue and innovative services to a

professional worker or a small group of workers using portable devices. 0luetooth technology has this potential and is coming along fast and Duick. %t will replace clumsy wires, make information transfer automatic without synchroni$ation cradles and introduce many new applications. echnology visionaries hope that it will do what infra red could not do over the past six years. he proposed 0luetooth solutions (hardware and software-based ) would automatically synchroni$e mobile devices when end Eusers enter their offices or home. %ntel and others are designing the sending and receiving radio freDuency chip sets. &ince the start of this initiative in 2AA@, interest in 0luetooth has grown tremendously signified by 2@33 members of 0luetooth consortium by mid !333. While 0luetooth consortium demonstrated prototype products in the 2AAA-!333, there are no production , Duality end user products using 0luetooth technology as of now, as far as we know. :omponent products (radios and chips) that can be integrated into finished products have started becoming available from ;ricsson and others. However, here is an opportunity for more start-up companies. %r1. is a competing technology and has been implemented in many products for over ?-4 years now but 0luetooth has a few distinct advantages- with ;ricsson6'icrosoft6%ntel team behind it. %n our opinion, there are relative benefits with several competing technologies, there is some overlap too. /et competitive products thrive so that we the users get the best solutions.

0luetooth is wireless technology and a short-range radio technology. 0luetooth wireless technology makes it possible to transmit signals over short distances between telephones, computers and other devices and thereby simplify communication and synchroni$ation between devices. %t is a global standard that+

- eliminates wires and cables between both stationary and mobile devices - facilitate both data and voice communication - offers the possibility of ad hoc networks and delivers the ultimate synchronicity between all your personal devices

0luetooth is actually a standard for wireless communications between devices in a personal area network (,.N) using radio freDuency for a short range ( around 23 meters). &o any two device that follow the standard can communicate and exchange data between each other without the need of any connection to be made between them. . group of 0luetooth devices like a mobile phone, a digital camera, a hand held device etc can instantly from a network with each other as soon as they are switched on. >ou could have a mobile phone in your pocket and you could be sending emails using your laptop without making any connection between your laptop and the mobile. >our refrigerator could be placing an order with the supermarket if your milk supply has been exhausted using your mobile phone. 0luetooth technology eliminates the need for numerous and inconvenient cable attachments for connecting fixed computers , mobile phone, mobile computers , handheld devices , digital cameras and even new breed of digital appliances. %t will enable user to connect a wide range of computing and telecommunication devices easily and simply, without the need of buy, carry or connect cables, Duite often proprietary to a specific device. %t delivers opportunities for rapid ad hoc connections, and the possibility of automatic, unconscious, connection between devices . %t creates the possibility of using mobile data in a variety of applications. 0luetooth makes wireless communication and networking between devices in a small locali$ed area of a room or a small office as easy as switching on the light. %n 0luetooth all the connections between devices are instantaneous and invisible and the device can talk even if they are not in line of sight because 0luetooth utili$es a radio based link. >our laptop could send information to a printer in the next room, or your

micro wave could send a message to your mobile phone telling you that your meal is ready. 0riefly, 0luetooth technology uses radio waves in !." #H$ band. herefore, no line of sight is reDuired supports multipoint, not just point to point works in a small confined area 23 to 2= meters apart is able to support speed of 2- ! 'bps today but will offer higher speeds in future chip sets are relatively inexpensive F23 to F !3 today in large Duantities E will go down in future has significant industry support with over 2@33 members in the industry consortium. %n shortly the 0luetooth wireless technology comprises hardware, software and interoperability reDuirements. 0eyond unleashing devices by replacing cables, 0luetooth wireless technology provides a universal bridge to existing data networks, a peripheral interface, and a mechanism to form small private ad hoc groupings of connected devices away from fixed network infrastructures. 0luetooth radio uses a fast acknowledgement and freDuency-hopping scheme to make the link robust, even in noisy radio environments.


0luetooth replaces wires, cables and line of sight remotes. %t allows communication among 0luetooth-enabled devices using a low-power radio freDuency. %t gives its users the freedom of movement (within 73 feet) and does away with the limitations of cord lengths, ports and physical barriers such as walls or doors. %t is ideal for creating ,.Ns (,ersonal .rea Networks).

0luetooth enabled devices have the ability to Grecogni$eH one another through a series globally adopted radio freDuency standards set by the 0luetooth :onsortium. With this technology, devices can transmit to one another without having to be continuously configured. ;ricssonIs intention was to have the technology adopted across many different industries and products. 'any different types of technology manufacturers have gotten on board. .s a result, 0luetooth now has many far-reaching applications. ,alms

can send documents to printers without wires. 'obile phones can communicate with the B, the oven and HB.: system. world, software needs to be available. he major area of deficiency is in software Once large companies begin to adopt the development using 0luetooth. %n order to really move the technology into the business technology and more importantly recogni$e the need to have 0luetooth as part of their companyIs software packages, products and more applications will begin to experience an increased level of production and the technology will begin to move into the mainstream.

8ecently, increased debate has been whether or not 0luetooth or Wi-*i would win the JwirelessI war. here have been many discussions that one or the other would prevail. %n fact, most likely, they both will exist together. .lthough both are wireless platforms, each has advantages and disadvantages. :urrently, 0luetoothIs demand is in small areas where power, si$e and cost are issues. 0luetoothIs advantages are that it uses relatively little power compared to Wi-*i. he technology itself is also smaller so it can fit in places where Wi-*i cannot, for example mobile phones and headsets. 0luetooth

technology is becoming cheaper and therefore more available for cost-sensitive technology purchasers. .nother important aspect to consider is that Wi-*i is a wireless network access technology, and 0luetooth is truly a wireless communication technology, meaning that users donIt have to go through an access point to gain wireless connectivity.


%n phase with the % -boom the mobility among people has constantly grown and wireless technologies for voice and data have evolved rapidly during the past years. :ountless electronic device for home, personal and business use have been presented to the market during recent years but no widespread technology to address the needs of connecting personal devices in ,ersonal .rea Networks (,.N) . he demand for a system that easily could connect devices for transfer of data and voice over a short distances without cables, grew stronger. 0luetooth wireless technology fill this important communication need, with its ability to communicate both voice and data wirelessly, using a standard low- power, low cost technology which can be integrated in all devices and thus enable total mobility. he price will be low and result in mass production. he more units around, the more benefits for the customer.

0luetooth was invented in 2AA" by /.' ;ricsson of &weden. ;ricsson decide to name their new technology after Harld 0latand (0latand K 0luetooth) who was the king of 1enmark from A"3 ..1. to A@2 ..1. 1uring his rule, he 9nited 1enmark and Norway and brought christianity to &candinavia, hence the inspiration on the name , uniting devices through 0luetooth. he legend sys that he was very fond of blue berries that gave him bluish teeth. %n *ebruary 2AA@ a &pecial %nterest #roup (&%#) was formed with a mission of creating, promoting and implementing 0luetooth. %t consists of ;ricsson and eight other telecommunications and computer industry giants-7:O', %0', %ntel, /ucent, 'icrosoft, 'otorola, Nokia and oshiba, which is today known as &pecial ,romoter #roup. /ater that year they publicly announced their intention to produce a global and royalty Efree specification making it possible for everyone to develop 0luetooth products.

%n Lune 2AAA they released the first 0luetooth specification.

his should have

been the beginning of a new era, with the 0luetooth wireless technology integrated in all possible appliances. 1espite the difficulties companies have already invested large amounts of money in 0luetooth wireless technology and they seem to be convinced that the Cstandard will be accepted and widely used. o-day it has !233 of adopter6associate member companies including all the major companies in the telecom, computer and home entertainment industries . 0luetooth eDuipped appliances has introduced in !332, but the real commercial break through in !33!.

'any companies have declared that 0luetooth wireless technology will be incorporated into their products. ;specially when components becomes cheaper. %n a forecast made by :ahners %n-stat #roup (Luly!333) the product availability during the next couple of years was defined as three waves. a) H; *%8& W.B; %t is believed to occur around the turn of the year

Technical Fea !"e#

0luetooth operates in the !." #H$ %&' band and utili$es 4" 'H$ of the spectrum. his range varies across different countries, based on government regulations. 0luetooth uses a combination of several standards to ensure a robust connection. . $"e%!enc&' h())in* scheme is used to avoid radio interference and add a level of security to 8* connections by using a different freDuency within the available %&' band for each data packet transmission. ;ach piconet is defined by its uniDue freDuency-hopping pattern that is defined by an algorithm based on the master device address.

Ti+e Di,i#i(n D!)le- .TDD/ is actually a fancy way of describing the fact that the
radio unit does not transmit and receive at the same time. 11 means that the radio must set itself to transmit for one time slot, and then switch itself to receive for the next time slot.

S)eech C(0in* (:B&1) is the particular voice data transmission algorithm used by
0luetooth - itNs simply a way of digitally encoding the characteristics of analog data. 0luetooth also uses small data packets, which are protected with *orward ;rror :orrection (*;:) or .utomatic 8epeat 8eDuest (.8M), and :yclic 8edundancy :heck (:8:) for error correction. 'ore information on these algorithms is available at .nywhere> or in the 0luetooth :ore &pecifications.

0luetooth devices may communicate at a range of 23 meters. his range may be extended to 233 meters when using a scatternet topology to transmit messages, or by increasing the radio unitNs transmission power.

0luetooth devices may communicate at a speed of up to 2 'bps, and may maintain simultaneous voice and data connections. 1ata connections may be synchronous or asynchronous, with data rates of "7! 5bps and 4!2 5bps respectively. 9p to three simultaneous voice connections may be maintained at a data rate of ?" 5bps. Boice connections are always synchronous.


0luetooth is a high- speed , low power microwave wireless link technology, designed to connect phones, laptops, ,1.s and other portable eDuipment together with little or no work by the user. 9nlike infra-red, 0luetooth does not reDuire line- of Esight

positioning of connected units. he technology uses modifications of existing wireless /.N techniDues but is most notable for its small si$e and low cost. he current prototype circuit are contained on a circuit board 3.Acm sDuare, with a much smaller single chip version in development. he cost of the device is expected to fall very fast, from F!3 initially to F= in a year or two. %t is envisioned that 0luetooth will be included with in eDuipment rather than being an optional extra. When one 0luetooth products comes within range of another, (this can be set to between 23cm and 233cm) they automatically exchange address and capability details. hey can ten establish a 2 megabit6sec ink (up to ! 'bps in the second generation of the technology) with security and error correction, to use as reDuired. he protocols will handle both voice and data, with a very flexible notebook topography. his technology achieves its goal by embedding tiny, inexpensive, short range transceivers into the electronic devices that are available today. he radio operates on the globally- available unlicensed radio band,!."=#H$ (meaning there will be no hindrance for international travelers using 0luetooth-enabled eDuipment), and supports data speed of up to 4!2 5bps, as well as three voice channels. he 0luetooth modules can be either built into electronic devices or used as an adopter. *or instance in a ,: they can be built in as a ,: card or externally attached via the 9&0 port.

0ut beyond untethering devices by replacing the cables, 0luetooth radio technology provides a universal bridge to existing data networks, a peripheral interface, and a mechanism to from small private ad hoc grouping of connected devices away from fixed network infrastructures. 1esigned to operate in a noise radio freDuency environment, the 0luetooth radio uses a fast acknowledgment and freDuency from other scheme to make the link robust. 0luetooth radio modules aviode interference from other signal by hopping to a new freDuency after transmitting or receiving a packet. :ompared With other system operating in the same freDuency band, the 0luetooth radio typically hops faster and uses shorter packets. his makes the 0luetooth radio more robust than

other system . &hort packages and fast hopping also limit the impact of domestic and professional microwave ovens. 9se of *orward ;rror :orrection (*;:) limits the impacts of random noise on long distance links. he encoding is optimi$ed for an uncoordinated environment . 0luetooth guarantees security at the bit level. .uthentication is controlled by the user by using a 2!@ bit key. 8adio signal can be coded with @ bit or anything upto 2!@ bits. he 0luetooth radio transmissions will conform to the safety standards reDuired by the countries where the technology will be used with respect to the affect of radio transmission on the human body. ;missions from 0luetooth enabled devices will be no greater than emissions from industry-standard cordless phone. he 0luetooth modules will not interfere or cause harm to public or private telecommunications network. he 0luetooth base band protocol is a combination of circuit and packet switching. &lot can be reserved for synchronous packets. ;ach packet is transmitted in a different hop freDuency. . packet nominally cover a single slot, but can be extended to cover up five slots. 0luetooth can support an asynchronous data channel, up to three simultaneous synchronous voice channels. Which simultaneously supports asynchronous data and synchronous voice. %t is thus possible to transfer the data asynchronously whilst at the same time talking synchronously at the same time. ;ach voice channel support an asymmetric link of maximally 4!2 kb6s in either direction while permitting =4.? kb6s in the return direction ,or a "7!.? kb6s symmetric link.

he 0luetooth radio is the hardware transceiver unit that implements the 0luetooth radio specification. he purpose of the specification is to provide compatibility between 0luetooth devices that operate in the !." #H$ %&' band, and to define the Duality of the system. *urther information on the 0luetooth radio specifications may be found in the 0luetooth core specification document. he 0luetooth baseband consists mainly of a /ink :ontroller (/:) that carries out baseband protocols and low-layer link routines. ,rotocols defined within the scope of the baseband specification include (among others) physical channels and links, data packet definitions, error correction and detection, logical channels, channel control, and hop selection. *or more information about the 0luetooth baseband specification, see the 0luetooth core specification document. .n example implementation of the 0luetooth radio and baseband is the ;ricsson 0luetooth 'odule. %n addition to the hardware, this module contains the firmware that implements the baseband specifications. .s youNd expect, there are a number of other manufacturers developing 0luetooth modules too.
