					Bluetooth profiles

The profile found in Bluetooth will describe how
The technology is used. Profiles can be best
described as vertical slices through the protocol
stack. They will look at options in each protocol
which are mandatory for the profile.

The profile will also vary the parameter
for each protocol. The concept of the profile
used to decrease the risk of interoperability
problems between the different products. This
profiles will not normally define any additions to
the Bluetooth specification, which is why you
Add new profiles where you need them. The
Bluetooth underlying technology is the same except
The specific method used is defined.

Generally, all profiles of Bluetooth are
based on the GAP (Generic Access Profile). There
Nine profiles that fall into the category of GAP, and
they are u200b u200bhieronder:
1. AVRCP - Audio / Video Remote Control
2. ESDP - Extended Service Discovery Profile
3. CIP - Common ISDN Access Profile
4. PAN - Public Area Network Profile
5. HCRP - Hardcopy Cable Replacement
6. GAVDP - Generic Audio / Visual Distribution
7. A2DP - Advanced Audio Distribution Profile
8. VDP - Video Distribution Profile
9. HID - Human Interface Device Profile

To put it another way, usage models will describe
Bluetooth device and its applications
profiles. The usage model focuses
three main categories - voice / data access points,
peripheral interconnects, and PAN (Personal Area

The voice and data access points involve connecting
computers to communicate with devices
a wireless connection. In this way the data can be transferred
In a wireless house, without the need for cables or
other forms of connectivity.
PAN is another important use of the model
strong appeal to business customers. Bluetooth
networks are easy to set up in virtually every type
of the environment. An example would be meeting
others on an exchange.

Instead of having contact information beamed via
infrared business cards can quickly and easily
transmitted wirelessly via Bluetooth. It is a fact
that many documents can be exchanged
the same way - making the use and potential
virtually endless.

The Bluetooth   profile is very important for the
specification   because it allows you to do so much
more. You can   use peripherals and devices
the profiles,   and virtually everything else that you

If Bluetooth grows and gets bigger and better,
You can count on the profiles to expand and get
more functions. If you have experience with
Bluetooth profiles, you need to know exactly what
they are and what you can do with them. If not,
all you need is a Bluetooth device - and a lively
