How Bluetooth® Technology Makes Wireless Communication Reliable

The challenge of wireless interference and the key techniques Bluetooth technology uses to overcome it.


Understanding Reliability in Bluetooth Technology

A detailed discussion of the many techniques Bluetooth technology uses to increase reliability.


The Challenge of Interference

One of the biggest challenges for any wireless technology in providing reliable data communication is interference.

Unlike wired data communications technologies, wireless technologies must share the transmission medium. For example, Bluetooth technology operates in the same 2.4 GHz ISM frequency band as Wi-Fi and technologies that utilize the IEEE 802.15.4 standard. As a result, it’s possible for a packet being transmitted between two Bluetooth devices to be corrupted or lost if it collides with a packet being transmitted at the exact same time and frequency between other in-range Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or 802.15.4 devices.
