It’s a common misperception that Bluetooth® technology is only an effective solution for short-range applications. In truth, Bluetooth technology supports a wide spectrum of achievable ranges between two devices, providing developers tremendous flexibility. For years, companies have been developing and testing long-range Bluetooth solutions to meet various market needs. It’s been proven that a Bluetooth signal can be reliably received by another device more than a kilometer away. 

Check out the videos below to see how leading innovators verify the extended range capabilities of Bluetooth technology.
