The global wireless standard for simple, secure connectivity.

Bluetooth 5 continues to drive the revolution of how people experience the IoT, with the simple, secure connectivity you expect.

 

Security

Bluetooth adheres to U.S. federal security regulations, ensuring that all Bluetooth devices are capable of meeting and exceeding strict government security standards.

Low Energy

The power-efficiency of Bluetooth with low energy functionality makes it perfect for devices that run for long periods on power sources, such as coin cell batteries or energy-harvesting devices. Bluetooth 5 offers the option of increased range or speed, and it’s always low energy.

Coexists with other technologies

Bluetooth 5 also includes updates that help reduce potential interference with other wireless technologies to ensure Bluetooth devices can coexist within the increasingly complex global IoT environment.
