A Bluetooth ad hoc network can be formed by interconnecting piconets into scatternets. The constraints and properties of Bluetooth scatternets present special challenges in forming an ad hoc network efficiently. This paper, the research contributions in this arena are brought together, to give an overview of the state-of-the-art. Simply stated, Bluetooth is a wireless communication protocol. Since it's a communication protocol, one can use Bluetooth to communicate to other Bluetooth-enabled devices. In this sense, Bluetooth is like any other communication protocol that one use every day, such as HTTP, FTP, SMTP, or IMAP. Bluetooth has client-server architecture; the one that initiates the connection is the client, and the one who receives the connection is the server.
