There is not a single person in the world acquainted with technology that is not aware of Bluetooth. It has been a wireless technology service that has enabled people to share or exchange various things from music files to documents since the smartphone became available to the general public. It has served us for years and has undergone numerous updates since its inception to become what we know and appreciate today.
Recently, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, consisting of the group of managers of the Classic Bluetooth, went a step further and reinvented Bluetooth technology. They introduced Bluetooth Low Energy which is possibly the next step in Bluetooth technology and is quickly creating waves in the Bluetooth and technology industry in general.
Bluetooth Low Energy or ‘BLE’ for short is sometimes referred to as the Bluetooth Smart. It functions in almost the same way as regular Bluetooth except for one major difference; it uses considerably less energy than classic Bluetooth. It is well known that leaving regular Bluetooth on drains a considerable amount of battery, a factor that we know all too well with our smartphones. BLE is essentially designed to address this problem when using Bluetooth in a much simpler way that can be described as only utilizing the Bluetooth function at exactly the time that it is needed. For instance, despite being on, a file or any data for that matter will only be sent at specific times and the entire process will consume considerably less power from your device as it would have with regular Bluetooth. This all sounds technical, but in short the Bluetooth Smart technology is a step up from regular Bluetooth and now has a much wider range of applications.
With BLE, Bluetooth developers are unlimited in the many ways they can model Bluetooth to apply to many other devices and products out in the market. For instance, Bluetooth Smart can be modeled to be able to communicate with various devices in health care, enabling them to communicate various elements such as blood pressure or glucose levels. This could mean reaching a very wide health care audience and even making service delivery in the health care sector that much more effective. Other areas where Bluetooth Smart technology can be applied include fitness and sports, security and alarm systems, internet connectivity and so much more.
