Today's workforce is becoming increasingly mobile. Handheld devices have evolved into indispensable enterprise tools, which enhance the mobile knowledge workers' ability to remain connected and productive. A WPAN (wireless personal area network) is intended for mobility and simple, short-range point-to-point communication with personal devices. The usage of Bluetooth wireless network technology is growing as it exploits low-cost, power efficient radio technology to support both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint connections. However, knowledge workers may find out that Bluetooth devices work with some products and not with others. We report on compatibility and interoperability issues experienced during the setting up of a mobile enterprise Bluetooth and WLAN Laboratory at the University of Technology in Sydney. It examines whether Bluetooth could be an adequate mobile solution in m-enterprises.
