Several large and well-known companies developed Bluetooth as an industry standard. The standard was introduced in order to specify how hand held devices, computers and other peripherals would communicate with one another without the need for cables. It uses short distance radio signals in order to generate communication between one device and another in close proximity. It is already widely used around the world in particular in bluetooth headsets, used for speaking on your cell phone when driving. However, data can be passed between any bluetooth devices within range.
Bluetooth is the simplest and most widely available technology of its kind. This means that manufacturers can build bluetooth-enabled devices quickly and effectively and pass this saving directly on to consumers. It is also extremely convenient and bluetooth devices are usually incredibly small. This is why it is used in hands free headsets for use with cell phones.
Because bluetooth is the industry standard, this means that it is widely accepted and regularly used by companies from all over the world for many different reasons. Because it is so easily accessible and the transfer of data from one bluetooth device to another is completely free it is the most popular option. It is also incredibly easy for consumers to use and in many cases it is simply a case of turning the bluetooth devices on and then sending the data as required.
Due to 128-bit encryption and adaptive frequency hopping, bluetooth is a secure method of transporting data over short distances. Whether you want to transfer files from your notebook to your computer or you want to talk on your cell phone while you are driving, bluetooth technology is likely to be the answer you are looking for. Businesses and individuals all around the world, use bluetooth on a regular basis.
