Currently, the technologies have evolved a lot in a few years, making the mobile devices able to provide the services that we currently enjoy. Hence, the Bluetooth 5 is now available to device manufacturers, offering 2x speed and 4x range improvements.
Bluetooth 5 Is Now Available To Device Manufacturers
One of the most important advances we left the end of the last century is undoubtedly the wireless communication. Just look back and see how it has changed the way we relate. Thus, we should thank the technologies such as Bluetooth, mobile networks, infrared, or Wi-Fi.
These technologies have evolved a lot in a few years, making mobile devices able to provide the services that we currently enjoy. Now, almost two decades after the first protocol comes the latest version of Bluetooth, a technology that has been very helpful when the Wi-Fi did not work for some tasks.
As we all heard earlier in June, that the fifth version of the Bluetooth will be developed to be much faster and powerful, plus more compatible with the new concepts of connection that are coming into our lives. The Bluetooth 5 is a notable improvement over previous versions, seeking an increase in performance with lower energy consumption by connecting devices that are located nearby.
This fifth version is much faster and arrived with 4x range ability, yes, now it is 4 times higher than before, with a transfer rate of 50 Mbps. This rate represents a significant increase in version 4.2 is 24 Mbps. The ability to send data becomes 8 times higher, implying a greater stability of connections. There is also an improvement that avoids interference with other existing technologies.
Obviously, to enjoy the improvements brought devices will need to have the new version. Bluetooth 5 has been officially launched, now it’s up to the manufacturers that they included the Bluetooth in Special Interest Group (exceed 30,000) to start implementing the new specification in its products.
It is hoped that we can begin to see the Bluetooth 5 in action in the upcoming devices during the first half of 2017. In any case, it is an improvement that makes little sense in this era of Internet of Things.
