Hardware manufactures has already filled the market with the devices supporting the Bluetooth 5.

Speed is the need of the hour for the users and devices likewise in today’ world. Bluetooth 5 gets support for the higher transmission speeds up to 2 Mbps which helps in increasing the output power. In other words the now Bluetooth devices will be using less energy to send similar amount of data which will help in boosting the power efficiency of the devices.

But it has seen the reality so far however the coming of the Bluetooth 5 brings the support for the mesh network which allows different nodes to communicate directly with one another. Mesh network is already being adopted by a number of modern day wireless systems like Zigbee and Google Wi-Fi but it has never been used in the Bluetooth devices so far. Support for the mesh networking will pave way for better adoption and enhanced usage of the Bluetooth connectivity in the Internet of Things devices on a greater scale.
