What is the difference between Bluetooth wireless technologies and other technologies, such as UWB, 802.11g, 802.11a, 802.11b, WLAN, Wi-Fi, AirPort, Infrared, and ZigBee?
While there are many differences, key among them are range, power consumption, and intended use. Bluetooth wireless technology in its most common implementations has a range of 30 feet (10m). This range, depending on the Bluetooth device class, can extend to 100 meters and has been shown, in some tests, to support an even greater range. Bluetooth technology consumes a low amount of power and is therefore appropriate for mobile and battery-operated devices. The technology provides voice, data, and audio connections between devices.
