This five-day Bluetooth Training In-Depth course undertakes a comprehensive study and analysis of Bluetooth wireless networking based on Bluetooth specification 4.0, which includes the alternate MAC/PHY (AMP) and low energy (LE) integration. Included are the Bluetooth basic rate (BR) and enhanced data rate (EDR) systems along with both LE and IEEE 802.11 AMP communication methods.

We will begin by studying Bluetooth signal propagation characteristics, modulation, packet structure, data and audio processing, and error control. Performance comparisons among BR, EDR, LE, and 802.11 AMP communication methods are made. The role of the Bluetooth link manager in establishing a connection and implementing security and encryption measures is then discussed.

Various higher layers in the Bluetooth protocol stack are examined such as packet segmentation and reassembly, service discovery, the host controller interface, and the implementation of application profiles. The Bluetooth qualification program is discussed. Finally, the ability of Bluetooth to coexist with other wireless networks in the 2.4 GHz band is analyzed.

  • Describe authentication and encryption methods available with Bluetooth
  • Explain how a Bluetooth device searches for other Bluetooth devices
  • Describe how a piconet is established and master-slave interaction occurs
  • Explain how the link is managed and how the user date is transported
  • Understand the differences between BR, EDR, 802.11 AMP, and LE protocols
  • Show how Bluetooth authentication and encryption operate
  • Discuss the role of a Bluetooth profile
  • Understand the Bluetooth qualification program
  • Analyze Bluetooth’s ability to coexist with other wireless networks
  • Let us know your reason for studying Bluetooth so we can customize the course to your group’s needs. The Bluetooth Training In-Depth course can be tailored for audiences such as equipment or application developers, networking specialists, and less technical audiences such as management, marketing/sales, and others.
  • If you are familiar with some aspects of this Bluetooth Training In-Depth course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
  • We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Bluetooth Training In-Depth around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
  • If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the Bluetooth Training In-Depth course in a manner understandable to lay audiences.

The target audience for this  Bluetooth Training In-Depth course:

  • Professionals who are developing or implementing high-performance wireless systems will benefit from the detailed analysis of the Bluetooth BR, EDR, LE, and 802.11 AMP specifications, including range calculations, modulation, and packet structures, and how Bluetooth devices find each other and establish communication links among them. Designers will gain insight into how device authentication, encryption, and other security measures are implemented in Bluetooth, and how a Bluetooth device communicates with its host. The strengths and weaknesses of Bluetooth against other wireless network protocols, and the interference they cause to each other, will be especially useful to those who must select one or more wireless methods best suited to their specific applications.
