In recent years, wireless ad-hoc networks have acquired significant importance. Correspondingly, a great deal of attention is offered towards short range radio systems that are operated using Bluetooth technology and IEEE 802.15 Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPAN). Piconets form the fundamental architectural unit in WPANs. Bluetooth is a Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) technology, which enables devices to connect and communicate via short-range ad-hoc networks. BlueTooth WPANs (BT-WPANs) are characteristically used to twist stand-alone devices located in the range of about 10 m into networked equipment.
