The rapid development of the Internet of Things market has made various wireless technologies more widely used. Among them, various applications based on Bluetooth technology will be widely distributed in various industries. With the release of the Bluetooth 5 standard and the strong introduction of the Bluetooth Mesh network function, the continuous improvement of Bluetooth specifications and technologies has made Bluetooth's position in the Internet of Things market more prominent. This article will elaborate on the emerging markets and common application scenarios of BLE.
Bluetooth, as the most common transmission protocol, was first widely popularized through mobile phones. Today, when the big wave of intelligent hardware in the Internet of Things (IoT) is coming, Bluetooth shows its advantages because of its low power consumption, and it has become one of the basic protocols for connection in the era of the Internet of Things.
BLE remote networking solution, includes a gateway (Bluetooth+3G/4G, Bluetooth+WIFI)+multiple Bluetooth device networking, which can be controlled via smart phone/flat panel terminal Internet or Bluetooth. Using the latest BLE4.2 technology, the number of network devices can be up to 64 (specifically determined according to the function of network control required)
The Internet of Things platform should be constructed based on the current Internet and communication technology, without relying on specific hardware modules. Users can access the Internet of Things based on their own device technology architecture
From the application level, the birth of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) has a subversive significance for IoT applications. At present, more used on most mobile devices is Bluetooth 4.2, and the biggest feature of the Bluetooth 4.2 standard is: faster data transmission, stronger privacy function, and IPv6 network support.
In the Internet of Things industry, Bluetooth may be the best choice for wireless communication applications, because Bluetooth technology has a broad audience, with low power consumption, intelligence, and low cost . It has been widely used in all IoT smart products including smart home, smart wearable devices, consumer electronics, smart medical and automotive equipment. Since Bluetooth technology plays such a large role in the Internet of Things, the function of the Bluetooth module is naturally not to be underestimated. This article will also explain in detail the powerful functions of the Bluetooth module.
