What is Bluetooth?
 Launched by a special interest group in
May 1998, Bluetooth is the code-name
for a wireless technology specification
for small form factor, low cost, short-
range radio links between mobile and
stationary PCs, mobile phones and
other peripheral devices, which will
work anywhere in the world.
          S.I.G. Founders
   Ericsson-a telephone Co. and leading provider
    in the new telecoms world.
   IBM- the world’s largest computer
    manufacture and world’s largest software Co.
   Intel-world’s largest chip maker and leading
    manufacturer of computer, networking and
    communications products.
   Nokia-leading mobile phone supplier.
   Toshiba-world’s 6th largest electronics and
    electronic equipment manufacturer.
Contributions by Founders

 Ericsson contributed the basic
 radio technology expertise.

 Toshiba  and IBM are developing
 a common specification for
 integrating a”Bluetooth” tech. into
 mobile devices.
Contributions by Founders

   Intel is contributing its advanced
    9mmX9mm chip and software

   Nokia contributes expertise in radio
    technology and mobile handset
Companies Joining Bluetooth

 3Com Corporation
 Lucent Technologies
 Motorola Corporation
     Bluetooth System
   Operates in the 2.4 GHz Industrial-Scientific-
    Medical (IMS) band.
   Has a 10meter to 100meter range
   Uses Frequency Hop (FH) scheme with 1600
    hops/sec, which divides the frequency band
    into a number of hop channels. All of this,
    together with an automatic output power
    adaptation to reduce the range exactly to
   During a connection, radio transceivers hop
    from one channel to another.
    Bluetooth System
 Supports up to 8 devices in a piconet
  (two channel/small network).
 Built-in-Security
 Non line-of-sight transmission through
  walls and briefcases.
 Regulated by governments worldwide.

    It will connect…….
 Printers
 Mobile Phones
 Hands-free Headsets
 LCD projectors
 Modems
 Wireless LAN devises
      Uses continued
 Notebooks
 Desktop PCs
 Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) ect…
 …… one another via Bluetooth short
  range radio modules installed in each of
  these devices.
   At home, your phone functions as a
    portable phone (fixed line charge).
    When your on the move, it functions
    as a mobile phone (cellular charge).
    And when your phone comes with in
    range of another mobile phone with
    built in bluetooth wireless technology
    it functions as a walkie-talkie(no
    telephony charge).
 You can access the Internet on your
  mobile computer via your mobile
 Unlock your car using your mobile
  phone that is equipped with bluetooth
         Future Plans
   By 2002, Bluetooth radio modules will
    be built into millions of mobile phones,
    PCs, laptops, PDAs and other devices.

   By 2003 Bluetooth is predicted to have
    more than 10 million mobile terminals
    built into cars in Europe and in the
 Wireless
 Wireless internet access
 Small form factor
 Low cost
 Low power requirements
 Multiple simultaneous wireless
 Available worldwide
 Application programmer interfaces
  (APIs) enable compatibility with new
  and legacy software applications.
 Full Integration into the Windows 98
  First and Second Edition and Windows
  2000 operating system.
 Speed of (1-2 Mbps)
   In-Car Internet terminals, faxes,
    stereo and video capabilities, and
    telematic equipment. (Telematic
    equipment provides traffic guidance
    with the use of telecommunications.)
 The Bluetooth SIG has yet to figure
  out how to keep Bluetooth from
  interfering with wireless LANs such as
  the 802.11 wireless LAN spec used by
  Apple’s AirPort technology. 802.11
  also runs on 2.4-GHz radio frequency.
 Telematic equipment could be setup to
  share vehicle velocity (speed,
  direction) and identification within a
  specified distance.
