We are pleased to announce that we have now added the latest high spec Bluetooth USB dongles to our product range. Bluetooth is a wireless protocol allowing voice and data transmission over short distances currently V2.0 devices can transmit or receive up to 100 meters apart. Typical devices that use Bluetooth technology are phones, telephones, laptops, personal computers, printers, GPS receivers, digital cameras, and video game consoles.
Bluetooth devices advertise all of the services that they provide which makes the process of discovering and connecting to compatible Bluetooth devices quick and easy. To connect to another Bluetooth device this is known as pairing and usually requires the device that you are attempting to connect or pair with to accept your request.
A USB Bluetooth dongle is a plug and play device that plugs into a spare USB slot on your computer which then allows you to transfer data between your computer and any Bluetooth device within range.
The Bluetooth Specification is based on frequency hopping spread spectrum technology and was developed in Sweden in 1994 By Jaap Haartsen and Sven Mattison who were working for Ericsson Mobile Platforms. The specifications were formalised by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group In 1998.
