Bluetooth

Bluetooth wireless technology is a low-power, short-range radio technology that can be used
to wirelessly connect computers, printers, personal digital assistants, cell phones, and other
devices.

Unlike infra-red technology, Bluetooth's reliance on radio signals means that devices do not
have to be in the same room, office, or cubicle with an unobstructed line of sight in order to
communicate. This wireless technology increases portability and efficiency within business
network applications.

Bluetooth adapters are available for USB and parallel connections.
