Bluetooth is a wireless short-range communications technology standard found in millions of products we use every day.
Products that use Bluetooth technology include:
- Portable speakers
A product with Bluetooth technology, such as a Bluetooth headset, has a tiny computer chip inside that contains the Bluetooth radio, and software that makes connectivity between devices possible.
When Bluetooth-enabled products, such as a cellphone and headphones, are in close proximity to each other, they connect or pair. A single Bluetooth headset can even connect to multiple devices at the same time. This enables you to talk on the phone or listen to music without the bother of wires or cords.
Organizations benefit from Bluetooth technology in many different ways. For example, Bluetooth’s short range makes it ideal for office situations with several enabled devices in close proximity, and the technology can also be used to transfer files from computers to mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones to transport information out of the office.
Bluetooth has also proved useful in the healthcare, manufacturing, entertainment and automotive sectors.
Bluetooth has even figured prominently during the COVID-19 pandemic with social distancing wearable devices that alert users when they have gotten too close to another human. The inventive Bluetooth wearables have included wristbands, badges, pendants and pocket-worn devices that are capable of detecting when one person is in close proximity to another and providing visual, audio, or haptic cues that can notify users to reestablish a safe distance.
It’s a market that is developing rapidly.
