How Are Bluetooth® Technology & the IoT Related?, Oceanside-Escondido, California

These days, it can be difficult to keep up with what seems like constant advancement in the technological world. However, as a business, you’ll need to stay abreast of the major topics that will inform your success, such as the relationship between Bluetooth® technology and the Internet of Things (IoT). If you’re not well-versed in these matters, use the following overview to ensure your enterprise excels.

What Is Bluetooth?

For years, internet use has leaned away from the untidy hazards of cables and wires. From mouses and keyboards to headphones, wireless connectivity has decluttered the workspace and streamlined its functionality. Bluetooth is the technology that allows these accessories to connect to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.

Essentially, it uses radio waves to communicate over short distances—usually no more than 30 feet. While Bluetooth-compatible devices both send and receive radio waves on 79 frequencies, this band is separate from those used for radio, cellphone calls, or medical facilities, so you don’t have to worry about interference. Because the waves only travel a short distance, they don’t use much power, and they’re far more secure than other wave-based systems, such as Wi-Fi.

What Is the Relationship Between Bluetooth & the IoT?

IoTThe IoT is an umbrella encompassing all of the devices that contain sensors and chips, which transmit and accept data and communicate with one another. For example, Bluetooth-compatible devices such as smartphones and modern cars can automatically sense and connect to up to eight devices at a time.

While most of these devices can connect to the internet, the radio waves they communicate with are separate from the internet that you’re used to browsing on your computer. Therefore, the concept of the internet is now broadening, becoming the Internet of Things.

As technology continues to advance, you’ll start to see the addition and sophistication of Bluetooth-based systems, in everything from public transportation to factory floors. The increasing number of devices that are becoming a part of the IoT also raises questions of security, as data sharing is central to the role of Bluetooth devices.
