"In an effort to catalyze the adoption of the Bluetooth wireless
connectivity technology, IBM is releasing its BlueDrekar protocol
stack, designed to satisfy the Bluetooth certification requirements
and encourage development for the new technology. In addition
to the BlueDrekar protocol stack, IBM is releasing its loadable
Linux module of the Line Discipline Driver for the HCI UART
Transport Layer under GNU license as a developerWorks
"The Bluetooth standard, named after the Viking King Harald
Blaatand (Bluetooth) II, is a short-range wireless communication
industry specification that allows portable, personal devices to
interact which each other and other stationary devices. It
primarily serves as a replacement for peripheral cables and other
short-range wireless technologies like the infrared data access
standard (IrDA). However, unlike IrDA, this technology uses the
spread spectrum radio frequency, and therefore it supports
omnidirectional multiple connections without even requiring
communicating devices to be in line of sight."
"BlueDrekar, named after the Viking vessel, consists of a
loadable module of the protocol stack for the Bluetooth wireless
technology with open APIs with manual pages, as well as code
samples illustrating how the driver can be used. This will allow
developers to develop applications without having to develop their
own protocol stack."
