Bluetooth Hotspot: Extending the Communication Range Between Bluetooth Devices
Bluetooth is a wireless radio specification designed to replace the cables as the medium for data and voices signals between electronic devices. Bluetooth's design sets a high priority on small size, low power consumption and low costs. The Bluetooth specification seeks to simplify communication between electronic devices by automating the connection process. In this paper, the authors explain Bluetooth protocol stack and its different layers, then moving on to how Bluetooth networks are formed and devices are located. The proposed idea in this paper is to develop Bluetooth hotspot and examine two different implementation approaches.
