Book Overview:

Bluetooth wireless technology is on the verge of revolutionizing communications, enabling virtually any communications device to transmit voice or data securely, at high speed -- without wires! It's no wonder everyone's talking about Bluetooth -- and now there's a complete, professional's guide to this remarkable technology. In Bluetooth: Connect Without Cables, two leading Bluetooth implementers explain the Bluetooth standard more clearly than it's ever been explained before -- and place Bluetooth in context, covering global markets, applications, complementary technologies, development issues, and more. Begin by understanding Bluetooth's origins and goals. Review the components of a Bluetooth system, how Bluetooth connections work, differences in Bluetooth's support for voice and data; security/management issues; key concepts such as piconets and scatternets; and system qualification. The book covers the Bluetooth protocol stack in depth, including module layers, host layers, and cross-layer functions. The authors conclude by placing Bluetooth in context: introducing complementary technologies, reviewing real-world implementation and development issues, analyzing the markets for Bluetooth technology, and previewing the future of Bluetooth.
