Unformatted text preview: Bluetooth is a technology that connects devices and makes a small range network, which is called a piconet. A piconet has a primary station and seven ‘active’ secondary stations. Secondary stations can’t communicate with each other. There can be 8 additional inactive parked stations. They can be combined into a scatternet in which case a secondary station will become the primary in the new network. The first layer in the Bluetooth model is the radio layer. It uses the FHSS method to avoid interference. The baseband layer uses time division multiple access to communicate. The L2CAP layer uses a 16-bit length and can be 65,535 bytes. This layer multiplexes, segments and reassembles, assesses the quality of service and controls group management....
