Until now, developers and researchers interested in the design, operation, and performance of Bluetooth networks have lacked guidance about potential answers and the relative advantages and disadvantages of performance solutions.

Performance Modeling and Analysis of Bluetooth Networks: Polling, Scheduling, and Traffic Control summarizes the research on the performance of Bluetooth networks, including both piconets and scatternets, conducted since 2001.  The book provides insights into the performance of Bluetooth networks through an analytical approach based upon queuing theory and discrete event simulation.  It also proposes and validates solutions for common problems that are not covered by the official Bluetooth specifications.

This volume allows developers and researchers to enrich their knowledge of performance issues and become better equipped to solve problems related to the design, deployment, and operation of Bluetooth networks.


Overall the book is a valuable source of scientific information about Bluetooth modeling and analysis. I recommend this book for researchers , Bluetooth developers, and all others interested in design, operation, and deployment of Bluetooth networks.”
