Nokia has introduced Wibree wireless technology which is short-range wireless connection that is seen as a cheaper, more efficient to Bluetooth wireless technology in some situations. Wibree should be considered as an add-on to Bluetooth technology as it works on the same hardware and can even work in standalone environments with out the Bluetooth hardware.
What is the difference between Wibree and Bluetooth?
Wibree and Bluetooth both operate at 2.4GHz and have a similar range of around 10 metres but the difference between the two lies in the continuity of the data being transferred. While Bluetooth is suited to constant uses such as streaming data or voice connectivity, Wibree is being touted as ideal for infrequent bursts of data – where the connected device will need to consume much less power.
- Ultra low peak, average & idle mode power consumption
- Ultra low cost & small size for accessories & human interface devices (HID)
- Minimal cost & size addition to mobile phones & PCs
- Global, intuitive & secure multi-vendor interoperability
With the launch of Wibree Nokia is bringing more energy efficient wireless technology to masses, so we can expect more efficient mobile devices soon.
