Maximizing BLE Throughput Part 4: Everything You Need to Know

Welcome to part 4 of the “Maximizing BLE Throughput” blog post series! This blog post will provide the key takeaways from our previous 3 posts and also bring us up-to-date with the latest BLE spec (such as 2M PHY). Bluetooth Low Energy was originally intended to transfer small chunks of data back and forth between devices. However, it’s now commonly used to transfer large amounts of data such as firmware updates, continuous sensor…
