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 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 in Bluetooth and WiFi. So today I am going to differentiate between Bluetooth and WiFi. Have a look:
Bluetooth is a wireless communication medium which is often used for transferring data. It is used to transfer data such as song, videos, etc in a personal area network. It is used for the communication in a small range. Not all but master Bluetooth device can communicate with seven devices at a time. Bluetooth is not as secure as WiFi.
The new version of Bluetooth is v3 and v4. Best Bluetooth device has an effective range 100 ft. Bluetooth is not as costly as that of WiFi.
WiFi has come from the word “Wireless Fidelity”. It is also a wireless communication medium often used to access internet services. WiFi are more effectively used in cafe, schools, companies and etc for faster internet connection. In WiFi technology there is a center access point with which a group of computers are connected and work together. WiFi works in a fixed range. Speed of WiFi depends on the number of people connected to a same access point.
WiFi uses 802.11 standards. It has much larger range then that of Bluetooth. WiFi is connected in a LAN (Local Area Network).
The latest WiFi updated is wireless N. it is fast because it uses MIMO (Multiple-In-Multiple-out) technology. It sends two or more than two data frame in one transmission.
I think that with this article now you can differentiate between Bluetooth and WiFi more clearly. I will be updating this article when found some new different. If you know something new difference between both of them, then share in the comments.
