Bluetooth Networking - Taking Handheld Computing to the Next Level
wireless technology is takinghandheld computing devices to the next level –wireless networking anytime anyplace. WithBluetooth enabled handhelds users will be able toeasily connect to the Internet and gains access totheir email (whether it is POP3 or behind thefirewall corporate email), browse the web, andstay connected with instant messaging. Andusers will be able to connect to their corporateLANs gaining access to the intranet, corporatedatabases, database synchronization, and desktopsynchronization for PIM data and documents.Bluetooth wireless technology will power newusage models for the handheld giving the usersunprecedented flexibility and connectivityoptions for truly anytime anyplace networkingsuch as:
Handheld-to-handheld collaboration forpersonal area networking (WPAN)
Handheld-to-LAN access point connectivityfor local area networking (WLAN)
Handheld-to-cellular phone communicationsfor wide area networking (WWAN)Only Bluetooth wireless technology on thehandheld can provide all of these networkingoptions. And it is due to the inherent advantagesof Bluetooth. First and foremost, because of thefrequency hopping nature of Bluetoothnetworking, there is no frequency planningrequired allowing a user to network anytimeanyplace. Next comes into play is form factor.Anytime anyplace networking only works whenthe handheld is easy to carry around. Bluetoothchip sets are small enough to fit on SD and CFcards, and are already embedded in cell phonesand some handhelds.And for anytime anyplace networking longbattery life is a prerequisite. Bluetooth enabledhandhelds are providing battery life that lastanywhere from 50% to 300% longer than otherwireless technologies. And last but not least isspeed. Handhelds by their nature are consideredlow bandwidth devices because of limitedmemory, CPU horsepower, screen size, andgraphics capabilities. Bluetooth wirelesstechnology, at over 600 kbps, is fast enough forthe most demanding applications written for thehandheld.With handheld wireless networking coming intoits own, and Bluetooth being the ideal technology,the question is how to make Bluetoothnetworking easy to use. Users are not going towant do a manual discovery process every time(like in personal area networking where the userchooses who to network with) when they want toget on the local area network. It would be likeasking a cellular phone user to first discover all of the cell towers in range, pick one, try and connectto it, if it is busy try the next one and so on untilyour are connected. The cellular user just hits the“send” button and he or she is connected. He orshe does not care how he or she got connected; heor she just got connected.The ideal Bluetooth local area networking usagemodel would be where the user would require noBluetooth knowledge. With Bluetooth accesspoints providing complete coverage throughoutthe enterprise, a user is not going to keep track of where they are or how many are out there. If multiple access points are in range the user isgoing to want to be connected to the access pointthat provides the most bandwidth. And if there
