Bluetooth Training Bootcamp

Bluetooth is a wireless short-range communications technology standard found in millions of products we use every day.

Products that use Bluetooth technology include:

  • Headsets
  • Smartphones
  • Laptops
  • 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.

Bluetooth has emerged as a money saver for many organizations. 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 is especially making its mark in retail. Speed, agility and efficiency are what retailers look for. Thanks to Bluetooth technology, advanced tools are evolving day by day to support retail businesses.

Bluetooth doesn’t simply reduce your expenses and improve your planning, more than that, it provides organizations with a competitive edge to thrive and grow in the market.

It’s also important to note that Bluetooth won’t affect your cellular data in any way.

Bluetooth works using short-range radio waves, not an internet connection. This means that Bluetooth will work anywhere you have two compatible devices — you don’t need any sort of data plan, or even a cellular connection.

Bluetooth has also proved useful in the healthcare sector. Wireless connections made possible by Bluetooth can automatically log information from medical equipment like stethoscopes, pacemakers or glucose monitors into computers or electronic logs, saving both doctors and patients valuable time and making medical equipment more accessible.

Bluetooth-enabled fitness equipment can make it easier to follow exercise routines, with heart-rate monitors and GPS trackers that automatically report routes or calories burned to smartphones or stereo headphones that stream music from a mobile device without wires to get in the way of your workout.

For home entertainment, the technology can connect all of the elements of a home theater without wires or stream audio or video from a mobile device or computer onto a TV or speakers.

When you’re on the road, Bluetooth can also connect enabled devices to your car’s electronic panel, so that you can answer a cell phone, play music from a mobile device or get directions from a GPS device directly from your car’s navigation display.

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.

Bluetooth Training Bootcamp Course by Tonex

Bluetooth Training Bootcamp, is a 3-days Hands-on Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth LE (BLE) Training Bootcamp with workshops, and exercises. This is a  practical Classic Bluetooth and BLE Training with hands-on activities. Learn about Bluetooth Classic and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless technology standards. Both Classic Bluetooth and BLE operate in the 2400-2483.5 MHz range within the ISM 2.4 GHz frequency band. In Classic Bluetooth, data is split into packets and exchanged through Bluetooth channels (79 designated channels, 1 MHz in bandwidth). Bluetooth Classic is a good fit for consumer products vs. BLE with lower power consumption for Machine to Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT). BLE also operates in the 2.4 GHz ISM band and unlike classic Bluetooth it remains in sleep mode most of the time (low duty cycle).
