Bluetooth technology was developed to replace cumbersome wires in portable and personal electronic devices with radio frequency wireless communication. It has since found its way into numerous mobile applications as well as home and automobile use. Bluetooth is an open standard for short-range Radio Frequency (RF) communication. Bluetooth technology is used primarily to establish Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN), commonly referred to as ad hoc or Peer-To-Peer (P2P) networks. This allows users to form ad hoc networks between a wide variety of devices to transfer voice and data.
