Broadcom and BVRP partner to improve Bluetooth connections

Broadcom and BVRP partner to improve Bluetooth connections
Broadcom Corporation announced a strategic partnership with BVRP Software to combine the BVRP Mobile PhoneTools mobility software suite with its Widcomm BTW (Bluetooth for Windows) Bluetooth software.

As a result of this strategic partnership, Broadcom will have exclusive rights to integrate the Bluetooth version of BVRP's Mobile PhoneTools software within its Widcomm BTW software. The new software package will only be available to Broadcom's Bluetooth partners since the version of Mobile PhoneTools has been specifically developed for tight integration with Broadcom BTW 4.0 software, announced last November. The combined Bluetooth software solution allows customers to connect to the Internet over GPRS, send Short Message Service (SMS) transmissions, or transfer pictures, music, video, calendar items and contact lists to and from their PCs and mobile phones using single mouse clicks and no cabling.
The BVRP Mobile PhoneTools software provides users with a graphical representation of a cellular phone that appears on their desktops or notebook computer screens. Once connected via a wireless Bluetooth link, the user can operate all of the primary phone functions directly from his or her computer:
  • Access and surf the Internet via any GPRS/EDGE/CDMA cellular data links
  • Transfer pictures, music and video to and from their camera phones and their PCs
  • Send and receive SMS messages directly from their PCs
  • Exchange phone numbers and contact information between their PCs and mobile phones
  • Synchronize calendars between their PCs and mobile phones
  • Send and receive emails and faxes directly from a PC
  • Download and manage multimedia files, such as ring-tones, images and other files.
    Broadcom's Widcomm BTW 4.0 Bluetooth software incorporates the latest software "profiles" to ensure a common set of features between two Bluetooth devices. Bluetooth profiles are developed and standardized through the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG). The Widcomm BTW 4.0 software features many of the latest profiles, which provide advanced multimedia capabilities, including the Generic Audio Video Distribution Profile (GAVDP), Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) and Audio Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP). The software also supports the Basic Imaging Profile, which provides the ability to "push" and "pull" images wirelessly between a mobile phone or digital camera and a PC.

    The software, including the BVRP Mobile PhoneTools software, is currently available to Broadcom partners, who will incorporate it to upcoming releases. End-users will always find the latest version from the O&M. USB dongles and embedded modules with the new software package will be available in early 2005 from all of Broadcom Bluetooth partners, including Tecom, USI, Microlink/Foxlink, Billionton, WNC (Wistron NeWeb Corporation), Foxconn, CC&C, Air2U, Formosa and J3, among others.
