Abstract

Six years after the adoption of the standard 4, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) has officially released the main features of Bluetooth 5. It is a major development in short-range wire- less communication technology. As stated by the SIG, the new standard will change the way peo- ple approach the Internet of Things (IoT) signifi- cantly. In this article, the future IoT scenarios and use cases that justify the push for Bluetooth 5 are introduced. A set of new technical features that are included in Bluetooth 5.0 are presented, and their advantages and drawbacks are described.
