While wireless technologies are sometimes perceived as unable to support the levels of reliability needed for challenging commercial and industrial use cases, Bluetooth® technology uses several techniques to improve the reliability of wireless communication. Proof of this claim can be found in the results of real-world use cases that validate the reliability of Bluetooth technology in demanding commercial and industrial settings.

The articles and white papers below (from those who understand the challenge of implementing wireless solutions in crowded, noisy environments) help showcase the reliability and resilience of Bluetooth technology. And for a detailed discussion on the many mitigation techniques Bluetooth technology uses to increase reliability, download this newly published paper from Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) Developer Relations Manager Martin Woolley, Understanding Reliability in Bluetooth Technology.
