Bluetooth Technology in Today. Technology is changing in our life constantly. Personally I feel that with out technology the quality of the lives we live would still be the same we just would not be able to communicate with each other as easily. Communicating with people is a very important and a necessary and sufficient condition for our daily lives. Would businesses be able to operate at the same speed? Communications however, effects much more than just the business world. You can guess how much you can get accomplished if you can’t not communicate with other people; other than those close enough to you to talk to. Imagine if it still took one week or more days to get your mail from Korea to USA. Communications effects our daily lives. Recently a new technology was introduced to the electronics world. This technology is known as Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a wireless LAN technology designed to connect devices of different functions such as telephones, notebooks, computer (desktop and laptop), camera, printers, coffee makers, like household application and so on. The name Bluetooth was from the Ericson Company. It named for Harald Blaatand, the king of Denmark (940-981) who united Denmark and Norway. Blaatand translates to Bluetooth in English. The inventors of the Bluetooth technology thought this a fitting name for their technology which allowed different devices to talk to each other. 1

The Bluetooth wireless technology is an open, accepted standard for wireless communication. It was developed by Dr. Sven Mattisson and Dr. Jaap Haartsen at Ericsson Mobile Communications in Lund, Sweden. Initially Bluetooth was to be used as an interface between mobile phones and their accessories. It soon became clear that the uses for this new wireless technology were manifold and Ericsson decided to share their technology, offer free licenses to any company that adopted the new technology, and brought together an ideal group to promote this technology. This association, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, or SIG chose the following as its Mission Statement: The Bluetooth SIG will support a collaborative environment and drive programs to develop and advance Bluetooth wireless technology in order to exceed personal connectivity expectations and meet the needs of a changing world. How did Bluetooth come about? Bluetooth is a specification for a wireless technology, developed by members of the Bluetooth SIG (Special Interest Group). The SIG was founded in February 1998, and initially consisted of the five companies Ericsson, Intel, Toshiba, Nokia & IBM. These companies worked diligently to come up with the technology we call Bluetooth. Today more than 1800 companies have joined the SIG to work for an open standard for the Bluetooth concept. Today the SIG consists of 9 promoter members Motorola, Lucent, Toshiba, Lucent, Microsoft, 3Com & 2
