  3. 3. How well do you know your bluetooth history?
  4. 4. Where did bluetooth get its name?
  5. 5. Where did bluetooth get its name? a) Blue shark b) Danish King c) Sophisticated robot communications system
  6. 6. The name "Bluetooth" is taken from the 10th century Danish King Harald Blatand - or Harold Bluetooth in English. During the formative stage of the trade association a code name was needed to name the effort. Over an evening discussing European history and the future of wireless technology several felt it was appropriate to name the technology after King Blatand. He had been instrumental in uniting warring factions in parts of what is now Norway, Sweden, and Denmark - just as the technology is designed to allow collaboration between differing industries such as the computing, mobile phone, and automotive markets. The code name stuck. Source: Bluetooth.org

  24. 24. Classic Bluetooth BLE Data Rate 1-3 Mbps 1 Mbps App Throughput 0.7 – 2.1 Mbps ~ 100Kbps Transmit Power (Distance) Class:1 - 20 dBm (~ 300 ft) Class:2 – 4 dBm (~30 ft) Class:3 – 0 dBm (~3 ft) Max 10 dBm (~450 ft) Average CPU Power consumption 20x to 100x 1x Packet Size Large Short (8 to 27 Octets) Frequency 2.4 GHz ISM 2.4 GHz ISM BLE vs Classic Bluetooth Comparison
  25. 25. BLE Communication Modes • Broadcasting (advertising) Mode • Connection Mode
  26. 26. BLE Communication Modes • Broadcasting (advertising) Mode – Tags transmit periodic beacons – No listen – Three pre-defined BT channels for beacons • Connection Mode – Used to transmit data in both directions between peers Advertising Data
  27. 27. What Category Do Devices Fall Into?
  28. 28. iBeacon : Introduction • iBeacon is a standard for advertisement developed by Apple • It allows mobile applications to listen for advertisements • iBeacon defines how the advertisement packet should look like Advertisements
  29. 29. iBeacon : Introduction • iBeacon is a standard for advertisement developed by Apple • It allows mobile applications to listen for advertisements • iBeacon defines how the advertisement packet should look like Advertisements

  48. 48. Wi-Fi Aware • Specification From Wi-Fi Alliance • Direct response to iBeacons • New Capability on Wi-Fi enabled devices that enables discovery of nearby information and services • Requires to be Wi-Fi Aware Certified – WFA will start certifying products end of 2015. • Technical Aspects: • Common ‘heartbeat’ so devices are awake at the same time to save battery • Protocol defines how services are discovered and advertised • Its still early stages • Expect consumer devices to be certified first @AirTight
