Introduction

Bluetooth low energy (BLE) is a wireless technology standard for personal area networks. BLE is targeted for very low power devices, devices that can run on a coin cell battery for months or years. Typical applications that uses BLE are health care, fitness trackers, beacons, smart home, security, entertainment, proximity sensors, Industrial and automotive. BLE ecosystem is centered around Smart phones, tablets and PCs.
