Course Overview

Course in a Nutshell

Bluetooth is a technology for connecting devices using wireless connections rather than cables. It uses radio frequencies in the 2.45 GHz range to transmit information over short distances. Products that support Bluetooth have hardware and software embedded within them to facilitate communication using Bluetooth protocols.
The course begins with an introduction to Bluetooth, its applications, networking implementations, and hardware. This is followed by a more detailed study of the Bluetooth protocol architecture and the component Bluetooth protocols, which will help provide a solid understanding of the structure of the protocols, their functionality, and the associated procedures. Reference will be made to the Bluetooth standards throughout the course. Bluetooth software functionality and requirements will also be addressed.
