The Official Bluetooth® Technology Web Site. IHS released details of its latest forecasts for the IHS Technology Connectivity in Consumer, Mobile and IT Market Tracker live from Bluetooth World.
The report puts Bluetooth penetration at 90 percent in 2014 for all mobile phones (not just smartphones), growing to 96 percent by 2018. Mobile phones serve as the hub for the Internet of My Things – the connectivity of the devices all around you like Bluetooth Smart enabled fitness, health, and sleep monitors, proximity tags, and even toothbrushes. Bluetooth protocols. The Bluetooth protocol stack is split in two parts: a "controller stack" containing the timing critical radio interface, and a "host stack" dealing with high level data.
The controller stack is generally implemented in a low cost silicon device containing the Bluetooth radio and a microprocessor. The host stack is generally implemented as part of an operating system, or as an installable package on top of an operating system. For integrated devices such as Bluetooth headsets, the host stack and controller stack can be run on the same microprocessor to reduce mass production costs; this is known as a hostless system.
