Bluetooth and Wifi

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (the brand name for products using IEEE 802.11 standards) have some similar applications: setting up networks, printing, or transferring files. Wi-Fi is intended as a replacement for cabling for general local area network access in work areas. This category of applications is sometimes called wireless local area networks (WLAN). Bluetooth was intended for portable equipment and its applications. The category of applications is outlined as the wireless personal area network (WPAN). Bluetooth is a replacement for cabling in a variety of personally carried applications in any setting and can also support fixed location applications such as smart energy functionality in the home (thermostats, etc.).

The specification of Bluetooth are a lot as the usage is very simple and various devices can be connected at a time .You can also switch between devices via Bluetooth. In other hand WiFi network is a complex network and hard to configure. You can use various devices with Bluetooth such as automation devices, mobile phones, keyboard, and mouse. While in WiFi network server, desktop, and notebook computer can be used. The rising issue of wifi and Bluetooth is the range because the range of Bluetooth is 10 meters and as compared to Bluetooth WiFi offering 100 meters range for user to make it more beneficial for user.

The security level of both Bluetooth and WiFi is also different from each other. Bluetooth has only 2 level of password to wrap little distance and escape user time. WiFi is a risky network because when lots of network attached with each other then hacker may try to access toward connected user and if succeed your data may be stolen. The power used for Bluetooth is very low and for WiFi it should be high because WiFi have long range of connectivity and Bluetooth have low. The similarities in both are frequency because both technologies have same frequency which is 2.4 Ghz.

Bluetooth is nonresident tools while wifi is residential equipments and its purposes. Both technologies are wireless but for different purposes. WiFi used to get access toward local area network in working areas while Bluetooth used to carry out personal application as smart energy. As we know WiFi is an Ethernet network and a user should configure it to get quick access to internet .Through WiFi transformation of files become easy. A user can also use hands-free and headset devices because it has a strong connection. WiFi prove good because it provide full strength network to enable fast connection. Same as Bluetooth is also very efficient technology for transformation of data between next to devices as telephone, modem, headset etc.

Both technologies are different because Bluetooth is a slow as compared to WiFi because WiFi is a fastest technology therefore WiFi also unsuited with it. WiFi enabled more and more user to connect with each other via wireless network. So bluetooth and WiFi have some resemblance but these both technologies complement each other due to their feature of connectivity, sharing, and speed. When we use these two technologies we can get better and battiest result of any project. WiFi enabled you to connect with internet without any wires but when you are exist in the range of hotspot, because WiFi works only in its specific range while Bluetooth offering quick exchanging of data and sharing opportunity of printer, laptop etc. In short the use of both technologies increasing day by day and both has something to looking forward.
