The Global Standard for Connection
Bluetooth® technology proves the power of connection. 4 billion devices will ship this year using Bluetooth to connect. To phones, to tablets, to PCs, or to each other.
And Bluetooth enables multiple ways to connect. After first demonstrating the power of simple point-to-point connections, Bluetooth broadcasting is now powering the global beacon revolution and accelerating new markets—like smart buildings—through mesh connections.
LE Audio will not only enhance the performance of Bluetooth audio, but will bring all its benefits to people with hearing loss and introduce Audio Sharing, an innovative new use case with the potential to once again change the way we connect with each other and experience the world around us.
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is creating a specification that will standardize support for wearable devices within existing smartphone-based COVID-19 Exposure Notification Systems (ENS). This effort is taking place within the Exposure Notification Working Group, which is open to all Bluetooth SIG member companies.
The effective, reliable range between Bluetooth devices is anywhere from more than a kilometer down to less than a meter.
Bluetooth mesh continues to revolutionize the IoT by playing a pivotal role in the development of emerging markets such as Smart Building, Smart Industry, Smart Cities, and Smart Home.
The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) member community continually strives to improve the security of Bluetooth technology, strengthening existing protections and introducing new security measures to meet the ever-evolving requirements of our connectivity landscape.
Bluetooth technology supports two radio versions, enabling developers to build products that meet the unique needs of their market.
