Bluetooth HOST Stack is independent of the operating system and hardware: 1) OS Independence -- the VOS (Virtual Operating System) concept makes Bluetooth HOST Stack directly adaptable to a wide range of RTOS (Real Time Operating Systems) for embedded systems like OSE, pSOS+, VxWorks, etc., as well as standard operating systems such as Windows and UNIX). Bluetooth HOST Stack can also be ported to more basic operating systems (e.g. single thread system) without changing the source code for the protocol layers. 2) HW Independence -- the Bluetooth HOST Stack is alignment independent and can operate in both little endian and big endian environments. 3) Compiler independent -- the code is implemented in ANSI C. Bluetooth HOST Stack is adapted/ported towards the customer's operating system and hardware through the implementation of two modules. The customer does not need to modify the source code for the actual Bluetooth protocol layers. This allows the customer to integrate updates of the Bluetooth HOST Stack by the simple means of compilation and linking.

Gathering requirements, doing a site survey and choosing the right equipment are the three most important factors for success. As in any other worthwhile project, make sure you spend enough time getting an understanding of what you need to deliver. As wireless HotSpots become more popular, the number of users at your HotSpot is likely to increase. Make sure you plan for the next revolution in communications. Third Generation (3G) Wireless Third Generation (3G) mobile devices and services will transform wireless communications into on-line, real-time connectivity. 3G wireless technology will allow an individual to have immediate access to location-specific services that offer information on demand. The first generation of mobile phones consisted of the analog models that emerged in the early 1980s. The second generation of digital mobile phones appeared about ten years later along with the first digital mobile networks. During the second generation, the mobile telecommunications industry experienced exponential growth both in terms of subscribers as well as new types of value-added services. Mobile phones are rapidly becoming the preferred means of personal communication, creating the world's largest consumer electronics industry. ...read more.
