We are excited to see that Bluetooth 5 is adopted and released. With up to 4x the range, 2x the speed and 8x the broadcasting message capacity, the enhancements of Bluetooth 5 focus on increasing functionality for the Internet of Things (IoT). Naturally, it will take some time for the devices and systems to be updated to reach a critical mass, but with the development of this and other methods, the IoT communications space is certainly providing a large range of competing technologies. Great for the industry, and with no clear leading technology at the moment – exciting times are ahead!
So with exciting developments in WiFi, SigFox, LoRaWan and Bluetooth it really is great for the industry, and with no clear leading technology at the moment – exciting times are ahead!
