Ultra-Wideband (UWB) vs. BLE

What is the difference between ultra-wideband and Bluetooth? Discover the pros and cons of each technology to find the best fit for your RTLS needs. Ultra-wideband is a low-power radio technology for transmitting data within the 3.1 to 10.6 GHz range. Bluetooth Low Energy is a radio frequency technology that transmits data in the 2.4 GHz spectrum band, specifically across 80 different 1 MHz wide channels from 2400 to 2483.5 MHz.

Bluetooth vs. BLE

Bluetooth Low Energy differs from its parent technology because it remains dormant until a connection is initiated. Where Bluetooth is best suited for a constant exchange of larger amounts of data, Bluetooth Low Energy excels at exchanging smaller amounts of data over a much longer period of time. Bluetooth Low Energy uses a reduced amount of power through faster connection times than traditional Bluetooth devices, reducing connections from 100mS to 6mS.
