Bluetooth Learning To Live With WiFi

Everyone seems to love talking about how all the different wireless technologies might compete against each other. However, people are realizing more and more, that as different technologies are built for different purposes, some may be very complementary together. ExtremeTech takes a look at the issues involved having Bluetooth and WiFi coexist. Some people are worried about interference between the two, but work is being done to combat that problem. In theory, it definitely makes sense to offer a combined solution. The two were built for very different purposes, and while you can shoehorn some uses designed for one into the other, it’s not a very elegant solution. However, the bigger issue might be how to deal with some of the other wireless data technologies that are cropping up every day now. It seems like we’re going to face the typical standards battle that so many new technologies seem to face.
