WPANs Technologies Beginning

  • Mohsen A. M. El-Bendary
Part of the Signals and Communication Technology book series (SCT)


Contents of the beginning of the personal wireless communications and original Bluetooth version are presented and the classes of the power also. Bluetooth technology forms its network from eight devices, this network is called Piconet. Every piconet contains from one device acts as a master and seven device act as slave. There are two types of physical connections, the ACL and SCO connection for voice communications. This chapter also presents the different Bluetooth protocols. The Bluetooth technology can be considered adaptive packets technology; there are different packets format can be employed for user data transmission. The different packets are introduced in this chapter.
