That is to reach the group of thirty companies by doubling the speed in the fifth version, with four times to send the range and verachtvoudiging the capacity unfocused data. “This will be the way that Bluetooth transmits information away from the pairing of devices to a iot device without an Internet connection.” Moreover, the Bluetooth beacons will make a lot more powerful, including to send ads, for example smartphones around.

Bluetooth SIG Bluetooth will deliver 5 latest early next year, so it is likely that devices with the new specification will appear in the course of next year. Usually new equipment follows quickly on the establishment of a new bluetooth version. The current version is 4.2.
