Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed (HS) may offer wireless data speeds of up to 24Mbps
There will be a day when we can wirelessly transfer those massive 12 megapixel image files from your digital camera to your mobile phone in a matter of seconds, then here’s an answer. The technology is called Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed (HS) and is being worked on by Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). The main objective of the project has been to improve the interoperability between Bluetooth devices. This technology will add WLAN to the MAC layer, physical layer and other layers the existing model of Bluetooth. There’s word that good WLAN connections can offer speeds of up to eight times the current speed of 3 Mbps – which totals up to 24 Mbps.
This opens up new doors for those who want to go onto develop advanced wireless connections that use Bluetooth as the base communication channel. The sad part is that Bluetooth 3.0 + High Speed (HS) cannot be used with existing wireless communication systems of its kind because of protocol conflicts.
