Bluetooth Low Energy Training, Hands-On BLE Training

Bluetooth Low Energy Training, is a 3-day Hands-On BLE Training.

Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy are used for very different application and purposes. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) is used for low-power industrial IoT, M2M and home automation. BLE devices include use cases and applications that do not need to exchange large amounts of data, and run on battery power with low duty-cycle for many years.
