7 Important Points
You Want To Know About Bluetooth 5
Bluetooth 5 specifications are ready and available for manufacturers. Bluetooth is a wireless technology of communication between electronics devices. It is a standard for exchanging data over short distances (using short-wavelength UHF radio waves in the ISM band from 2.4 to 2.485 GHz) from fixed and mobile devices by building personal area networks (PANs).
Bluetooth is widely used among mobile devices, including some common uses like connecting wireless speakers or headphones to file transfers among devices. Whether a smartwatch or wireless keyboard, a wide variety of Bluetooth enable devices are available.
Here are a few important points about Bluetooth 5:
① Bluetooth 5 supports connectivity upto 40 metres distance nearly four times longer than its predecessor.
② It has a data transfer rate of 2Mb/s, twice as fast in terms of performance, plus it will carry eight times the amount of information. It means more data and faster speed rate.
③ Designed for the Internet of Things (IOT) devices. Bluetooth 5 is targeted for IOT beacons which can communicate location specific information. Increased broadcast message size (Up to 8 times more broadcasting message capacity over Bluetooth 4.2) due to higher bandwidth targets for better performance.
④ Robust Signal and Low Energy: Since Bluuetooth 4.1, it is improvising the Bluetooth Low Energy Data Channel Selection Algorithm. It helps in reducing the potential interference caused by other Bluetooth or Wireless devices in any given area.
⑤ It is estimated 13.9 billion Bluetooth 5 enabled devices be ready for shipments by 2020.
⑥ Improved detection and interference prevention at the edges of the 2.4 GHz ISM band and the neighboring LTE band.
⑦ Devices implementing only the low energy feature of Bluetooth 5 will be backward compatible with Bluetooth 4.2, 4.1 and 4.0 devices.
