Expect better, faster Bluetooth in 2016 thanks to IoT

Not only will Bluetooth Smart devices get a 4x range boost, they’ll also work as a mesh network for the fast growing IoT market.

Sourced through Scoop.it from: www.zdnet.com

The overall range of Bluetooth Smart devices will expand 4X and data transfer speeds will be doubled over today’s devices. More importantly, particularly for small IoT devices, the additional throughput and speed won’t require any addition power over current wireless devices.  Even better: Next year, Bluetooth Smart gains mesh networking features.  That means you can have a wide range of Bluetooth objects in the home or office and worry far less about overall network coverage for them. Each device can repeat network signals to others on the network.   To help grow the IoT market — expected to top 6.3 billion devices next year — the Bluetooth SIG is smartly changing with the times so that it can stay in the forefront of people’s minds when it comes to smart connected devices.
