Synopsis

The technology of Bluetooth is nothing new, but in, many respects it can still seem like more of a buzz word rather than an accepted technology.  You may see the ads for Bluetooth enabled devices, although you still may be wondering what it is.

Capabilities
The Bluetooth definition is a wireless technology that is a worldwide specification for a small form factor, low cost solution that will provide link between mobile devices and other electronic  devices.

Similar to 802.11 b/g wireless and many cordless telephone systems, Bluetooth operates on 2.4 GHz radio signals.  The 2.4 GHz band seems to be a bit crowded, with interferences between the devices a bit hard to avoid.  Telephones are now being offered at the 5.8 GHz frequency band, which will help to remedy this.

The technical specifications of Bluetooth will indicate a maximum transfer rate of 723 kbps with
a range of 65 - 328 feet, all depending on the  class of that particular device.  The speed is a
fraction of what is offered by wireless standards, so it's obvious that Bluetooth doesn't really  pose a threat to replacing your wireless network.
