Callpod Dragon Bluetooth headset with a 100m range.Bluetooth is a standard and communications protocol primarily designed for low power consumption, with a short range (power-class-dependent: 1 meter, 10 meters,100 meters) based on low-costtransceiver microchipsin each device.
Bluetoothmakes it possible for these devices to communicate with each other when they are inrange. Because the devices use a radio communications system, they do not have to bein line of sight of each other; they can even be far apart if the transmission hassufficient power .
ClassMaximum Permitted PowermW (dBm)
100 mW (20 dBm)~100 meters
2.5 mW (4 dBm)~10 meters
1 mW (0 dBm)~1 meter In most cases the effective range of class 2 devices is extended if they connect to aclass 1 transceiver, compared to a pure class 2 network. This is accomplished by thehigher sensitivity and transmission power of Class 1 devices.

 Bluetooth profiles
In order to use Bluetooth, a device must be compatible with certain Bluetooth profiles. These define the possible applications and uses of the technology.
