Overview: The Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) is a global body that oversees the development of Bluetooth standards and the licensing of Bluetooth technologies and trademarks to manufacturers. The SIG is a not-for-profit, non-stock corporation founded in September 1998. The Bluetooth wireless specification includes both link layer and application layer definitions for product developers, which support data, voice, and content-centric applications. Radios that comply with the Bluetooth wireless specification operate in the unlicensed 2.4 GHz radio spectrum, and enable links between mobile computers, mobile phones, portable handheld devices, and connectivity to the Internet. The SIG does not make, manufacture, or sell Bluetooth enabled products.
