Part 3: The Bluetooth Profiles Examined > The Networking Profiles

Chapter 15. The Networking Profiles

The final group of version 1.0 profiles is what we term the networking profiles. This group consists of the LAN access, dial-up networking and fax profiles. As noted in the preceding chapters, each profile includes the aspect of a serial port, and the dial-up networking and fax profiles include an element of telephony. But to our way of thinking the primary focus of these profiles is on multihop (long-haul) data communications and networking. Clearly both dial-up networking and LAN access are intended to facilitate data networking, and the fax profile seems to have more in common with data networking (especially of the dial-up kind) than it does with voice telephony. All of the profiles in this group include an element of access to a wide area network for data communication.

All three of these profiles are intended to take advantage of Bluetooth wireless communication to make a well-known existing task easier by removing the need for cables. Using a fax or accessing a network, either directly or through a dial-up connection, are common tasks for many people. The profiles examined here define how to do these tasks in Bluetooth environments, without wires.
