Bluegiga Bluetooth Access Server combines multiple network technologies
The WRAP Multiradio Access Server enables the use of mobile phones and other devices with Bluetooth technology to wirelessly access and synchronise content and applications in both the corporate intranet and the Internet. First applications include the synchronization of email and calendar systems and news services.

The product combines a Bluetooth access point (100m range) with local application hosting and processing capability and transparent routing to other networks. With three built-in Bluetooth modules, Bluegiga WRAP Multiradio Access Server manages up to 21 simultaneous connections. Support for WLAN, GSM and GPRS technologies are added with a CF card. Wireline interfaces include Ethernet LAN, USB and RS232. Routing between different communication technologies is completely transparent to the users.

Currently the company offers a small application for Symbian Series 60 smartphones (Nokia 3650, 6600) that enables TCP/IP connectivity over Bluetooth when interfacing with the server. Applications like Opera browser, SIP clients, IM clients can benefit of having access to a office LAN instead of using the GPRS connection to retrieve e-mail, content and applications. In the case of SIP clients even voice calls using VoIP are possible.

Support for a higher number of simultaneous Bluetooth connections enables the provision of Bluetooth Hotspots, offering a wireless Internet connection to cell phones and PDAs. As a new service targeted to the users of Bluetooth enabled smart devices, Bluetooth Hotspots open up a variety of opportunities for local wireless marketing and promotional purposes.

Applications for a Bluetooth Access Server include a range of telemetry solutions, such as wireless monitoring of patient condition in medical institutions. An emerging field is Machine-to-Machine communication (M2M), using systems based on Bluetooth in remote monitoring, control and configuration of machines in industrial plants. Application can be developed using Linux tools. Bluetooth support includes LAN Access, Serial Port and Object Exchange profiles.
