Introduction:

Bluetooth Operation, Security, Applications and Coexistence Training Course Hands-on

This comprehensive three-day Bluetooth Operation, Security, Applications and Coexistence Training course introduces and analyzes Bluetooth wireless networking based on Bluetooth specification 2.1 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate).

Participants begin by studying Bluetooth signal propagation characteristics, modulation, packet structure, data and audio processing, and error control. 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.

Duration: 3 days

Customize It:

• If you are familiar with some aspects of Bluetooth Operation, Security, Applications and Coexistence Training, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
• We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the Bluetooth Operation, Security, Applications and Coexistence Training course 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 Operation, Security, Applications and Coexistence Training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
