Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for connecting devices. It uses radio frequencies to transmit information. By embedding a Bluetooth chip and receiver into products, cables that would normally carry the signal can be eliminated. Beyond pure cable replacement, Bluetooth wireless technology also defines how devices interoperate and exchange information, effectively adding intelligence and new functionality to enhance the way people experience connectivity.
