Keywords: BlueSoleil 7.0, BlueSoleil 8.0, BLE

IVT Corporation BlueSoleil owns its own Bluetooth low energy (BLE) protocol stack, having independently developed featured software such as BlueSoleil 7.0, BlueSoleil 8.0 and BlueSoleil 9.0. BlueSoleil 7.0 and BlueSoleil 8.0 has been put on the market while the marketing of BlueSoleil 9.0 is one of our future plans. Besides, we have published beta versions of BS7+BLE and BS8 + BLE. With BLE technology integrated, BlueSoleil series enhanced offerings with support for Bluetooth low energy wireless technology. The profiles of BlueSoleil BLE include consumer profiles, health care profiles and sporting profiles. The featured profiles of our software related to BLE technology are currently Find Me: The find me profile shall support electronic leash applications; Proximity: The proximity profile shall support wireless lock applications as well as authentication procedures; Health Thermometer: The health thermometer profile enables a collector device to connect and interact with a thermometer sensor for use in healthcare applications; Heart Rate: The heart rate profile enables a collector device to connect and interact with a heart rate sensor for use in fitness applications; HID OVER GATT: The HID over GATT profile defines the procedures and features to be used by Bluetooth low energy HID devices using GATT and Bluetooth HID hosts using GATT.

Bluetooth low energy (BLE) technology is the hallmark feature of and available to the general public as part of Bluetooth Core Specification Version 4.0. wireless radio technology, aimed at new, principally low-power and low-latency applications for wireless devices within a short range (up to 50 meters / 160 feet), which facilitates a wide range of applications and smaller form factor devices in the healthcare, fitness, security and home entertainment industries. In the market of proprietary connectivity solutions, BLE technology differentiates itself through its: Widely adopted industry standard for protocols (The Bluetooth SIG Bluetooth v4.0 and future later versions); Widely communalized application profiles agreed under the auspices of The Bluetooth SIG; Multi vendor availability of respective chips; Internationally adopted industry standard for transmission (IEEE 802.15.1); Possibility to emulate the protocol stack with compliant 2.45 GHz chips (IEEE 802.15); Low price through single chip integration; Availability of new application via applet downloads; Continuous compatibility with yet deployed Bluetooth devices (V4.0 or later) via software updates.

Our BlueSoleil BLE software provides third party development interface, supporting Win7 as well as Win8 and supporting MS API development on Win8, with the following profiles coming soon: Alert Notification: The alert notification profile allows a device like a watch to obtain information from a cell phone about incoming calls, missed calls and SMS/MMS messages and also enables the client device to get information about the number of unread messages on the server device; Blood Pressure: The blood pressure profile enables a device to connect and interact with a blood pressure sensor device for use in consumer and professional health care applications; Glucose: The glucose profile enables a device to connect and interact with a glucose sensor for use in consumer and professional healthcare applications; Phone Alert Status: The phone alert status profile is used to obtain the phone alert status exposed by the phone alert status service in the peer device and also enables the device to configure ringer status on the peer device; Scan Parameters: The scan parameters profile is used to provide devices with information to assist them in managing their connection idle timeout and advertising parameters to optimize for power consumption and/or reconnection latency; Time: The time profile is used to obtain the date and time, and related information such as time zone as exposed by the current time service in the peer device and also enables the device to request updating the time on the peer device as exposed by the reference time update service.
