Blue­tooth 5 Tar­gets IoT

Twice the speed, four times the range

Micro Mart - - Google Fact Check -

The Blue­tooth Spe­cial In­ter­est Group has of­fi­cially adopted Blue­tooth 5 as the lat­est ver­sion of the core Blue­tooth spec­i­fi­ca­tion this week. With the lat­est spec­i­fi­ca­tion now avail­able to man­u­fac­tur­ers and de­vel­op­ers, we can ex­pect to see hard­ware built with Blue­tooth 5 within two to six months. The spec­i­fi­ca­tion nat­u­rally comes with a bunch of im­prove­ments over Blue­tooth 4.2, in­clud­ing eight times the ca­pac­ity, two times the speed and four times the range.

Blue­tooth 5 is re­ally all about the In­ter­net of Things, though, help­ing to re­duce po­ten­tial in­ter­fer­ence with other wire­less tech­nolo­gies to en­sure that Blue­tooth de­vices can “co­ex­ist within the in­creas­ingly com­plex global IoT en­vi­ron­ment”. The ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor of the Spe­cial In­ter­est Group wrote in a re­lease that Blue­tooth was “rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing how peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence the IoT” and that by de­creas­ing con­nec­tion bar­ri­ers, IoT would be­come a seam­less ex­pe­ri­ence.

So now you know.
