Bluetooth 5 Expands into the Smart Grid | Wireless

Bluetooth is an established standard driven by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) and is today’s leading connectivity technology in terms of volume shipments and installed base.

It is one of the fastest-growing wireless technologies according to ABI Research. Before Bluetooth 4.0, devices connecting to phones or computers had mostly been limited to audio headsets or human interface devices (HIDs) (mice, keyboards and other applications) using Classic Bluetooth for streaming audio or transferring large packet sizes at a high data rate.

The primary limitation for Classic Bluetooth was its comparatively high-power consumption, which made it limited for low-power applications using coin cells or other batteries.
