Mobile and wireless computing: Bluetooth-a cable replacement and more
Similar to a knight in shining armor, along comes Bluetooth; offering instant connectivity, intelligent service identification, software driven system configuration, and a myriad of other advantages associated with replacing cabling with an RF link. All of this good stuff is provided for a target price of $5 per termination, a cost that is substantially lower than the cost of most cables with a single pair of terminations. This miracle of modern communication technology is achieved with a 2.4-GHz frequency hopping trans-ceiver and a collection of communications protocols. At least, that is the promise. The participants who include such industrial giants as IBM, Motorola, Ericsson, Toshiba, Nokia, and over a thousand other consortium participants provide credibility for the promise.
