This year, the Bluetooth® community made major strides in wireless innovation. Around the world, community members worked diligently with global partners to publish comprehensive case studies that validate the reliability, flexibility, and scalability of Bluetooth technology across a wide range of platforms and infrastructures. From real-time asset tracking to networked lighting control, Bluetooth technology is being used to support sustainable solutions that enhance operational efficiency and reduce operational costs.

Here is a look back at some of the top Bluetooth SIG member case studies of 2022.

Achieving the Best Wireless Performance and Connectivity for Large-Scale Industrial IoT Solutions In Hazardous Area Environments

Cassia Networks partners with Extronics to deliver a flexible wireless solution that deploys at scale to support optimal, cost-effective performance. The combination of Cassia’s long-range Bluetooth® capabilities and Extronics’ pre-certified wireless enclosure helps ensure customers can connect multiple wireless sensors and/or tags for various IoT use cases, such as condition monitoring and personnel and asset tracking applications.

Tapkey Enables Mobile Access

Key-based locking systems are going out of fashion, especially for shared vehicles, hotel rooms, or rented offices. Handing over the key requires a face-to-face meeting or shipping. Things can be done more efficiently and quickly with a cloud-based platform. Owners and service providers can use it remotely to issue, revoke, or set time limits for authorizations. And the user then simply opens the door: either via Bluetooth Low Energy or, in an alternative solution, via NFC.
