Bluetooth has a lot to offer to an increasingly difficult market. Bluetooth can bring the promise of freedom from the cables and simplicity in networking that has yet to be matched with LAN (Local Area Network).
In key markets, wireless devices and laptops, the closest competitor to Bluetooth is infrared. Infrared has many key features, although the line of sight that provides not pass through walls or other barriers, such as Bluetooth.Bluetooth

Unlike infrared, Bluetooth isn't a line of sight and it provides ranges of up to 100 meters. Bluetooth is also low power and low processing with an overhead protocol. What this means, is that it's ideal for integration into small battery powered devices. To put it short, the applications with Bluetooth are virtually endless.
Disadvantages

Bluetooth has several positive features, and you should be very difficult to find and cons, taking into account the actual competition. The only downsides are real throughput and safety. Infrared can have data transfer rates of up to 4 Mbps, which provides very fast rates for data transfer, while Bluetooth only offers 1 Mbps

For this reason, infrared has yet to give up completely and is considered by many to be the house as Bluetooth. Infrared has inherent security due to its look.

The greater range and radio frequency (RF) of Bluetooth is much more open to interception and attack. For this reason, security is a very important aspect to the Bluetooth specification.

Although there are very few disadvantages, Bluetooth still remains the best for short range wireless technology. Those who have tried it love it, and they know for a fact that Bluetooth will be around for years to come.
