Bluetooth 5 is Here To Take Back The Lead in IoT

It looks like whole Beacon family is about to become more useful, as Bluetooth 5 technology is here. For who follow the latest advancement of Bluetooth, you know it’s no longer just about connecting headphones and speakers to your smartphone, but is shifting to become a conduit for the Internet of Things, thanks to new features including extended range, faster speeds, and the ability to send more data to devices without needing a direct connection. The announcement was expected, after Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s Mark Powell discussed plans in a public email earlier in June. Bluetooth 5 signals a shift away from the “version x.x” naming template that has been in use since the technology was introduced.
