As we know bluetooth is widely used for many of the reasons such as copying data between wireless mobile and fixed devices. It is used as headset for hands free use. It is used in many more electronic devices to make them operate without the need of wire connectivity for example, keyboard,mouse and so on.

Devices communicate in 2.4GHz ISM band in master-slave configuration. The maximum slave supported are about 8. It helps transfer information at the 1Mbps rate. Further increase of speed is supported in latest bluetooth releases V3,V4 and V4.1. Refer following link to know difference between various bluetooth versions. GFSK modulation is employed in bluetooth. As it operates in small area it is also referred as PAN(Personal Area Network).
