Bluetooth wireless technology has a range of about 30 feet. However, depending on the device class, this range can extend to about 100 meters. Bluetooth technology consumes low amounts of power and provides audio, data and voice connections between different devices. It pairs devices using a spread-spectrum, full-duplex signal at the rate of 1600 hops per second.
Many manufacturers today implement Bluetooth wireless technology in their products, from smartphones and tablets to medical devices and automobiles. These devices are available globally, with over 19 million shipping every week. While Bluetooth offers wireless technology to be adopted by manufacturers, many of these manufacturers have software upgrades specific to their devices, with some offering adapters that add more Bluetooth functionality, depending on the devices.
