Bluetooth is a very common device that can be found in any smartphone nowadays but it can not be said that everybody is using WiFi because there are lots of ways of surfing the Internet.
At many places, I found that people are confused about WiFi and Bluetooth and don’t know the basic difference between them. But, in reality, there is a great difference between Bluetooth and WiFi. So today I am going to differentiate between Bluetooth and WiFi. Have a look:
Bluetooth is a wireless communication medium that is often used for transferring data. It is used to transfer data such as songs, videos, etc in a personal area network. It is used for communication in a small range. Not all but master Bluetooth devices can communicate with seven devices at a time. Bluetooth is not as secure as WiFi.
The new version of Bluetooth is v3 and v4. The best Bluetooth device has an effective range of 100 ft. Bluetooth is not as costly as that WiFi.
WiFi has come from the word “Wireless Fidelity”. It is also a wireless communication medium often used to access internet services. WiFi is more effectively used in cafes, schools, companies and etc for faster internet connection. In WiFi technology, there is a central access point with which a group of computers is connected and work together. WiFi works in a fixed range. The speed of WiFi depends on the number of people connected to the same access point.
WiFi uses 802.11 standards. It has a much larger range than that of Bluetooth. WiFi is connected to a LAN (Local Area Network).
The latest WiFi update is wireless N. it is fast because it uses MIMO (Multiple-In-Multiple-out) technology. It sends two or more than two data frames in one transmission.
