High-Speed Bluetooth is On the Way

High-Speed Bluetooth is On the Way


A new technology known as “High Speed Bluetooth,” which will combine Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies, will make communication much easier for users, especially those handling large files. That’s according to a report released earlier this week by ABI Research.

The brief, “Bluetooth Over 802.11,” concludes that High Speed Bluetooth is the next logical progression in wireless technology.

“For consumers it’s a win, because the upgrade is totally transparent to them. They’ll just see better data throughput and faster file transfers,” ABI senior analyst Douglas McEuen said as part of the announcement.

The first devices featuring the technology are expected to appear late this year. The technology was announced by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. For more information on the study, visit www.abiresearch.com
