Bluetooth was earlier just known for basic wireless connectivity for personal devices. It is now revolutionizing industrial applications. A related whitepaper highlights the evolution of Bluetooth technology and mainly focused on its growing role in the industrial IoT space. Industries are lately undergoing digital transformation and the need for reliable, efficient as well as flexible wireless solutions is in demand. Bluetooth technology is stepping up to meet the demands. It is expected that the market growth rate for the technology is expected be 34% from 2023 to 2028.

The industrial sector presents unique challenges and requirements. The need for robust connectivity, efficient operation, increased visibility and enhanced safety in automation processes is what required.

One of the key aspects of the role of Bluetooth in IIoT is its versatility across various applications. It helps in streamline operations and monitor machinery in real-time in manufacturing. It helps in reducing downtime and maintenance costs.

Bluetooth enables smart lighting and HVAC systems in commercial buildings. It helps in improving energy efficiency as well as comfort. Similarly, it ensures precise location tracking of valuable equipment and inventory in asset tracking. It helps in reducing losses and improving logistics.

The whitepaper also talks about the interplay between different wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi, 802.15.4 and Ultra-wideband (UWB). It also mentions how each plays a role in transforming industrial and commercial environments. Hence, it can be said that Bluetooth stands out as a key enabler of IIoT applications due to its low power consumption and robust connectivity.
