Abstract

Disclosed is a system for coupling multiple Bluetooth piconets via a Bluetooth device designated as an interconnectivity bridge. The interconnectivity bridge device connects a Bluetooth piconet to a larger network; the larger network in turn is used to connect to other interconnectivity bridge devices in other Bluetooth piconets. Further, the interconnectivity bridge device enables Web services in the larger network to be exposed to the Bluetooth devices in the piconets as Bluetooth services, and Bluetooth services in the piconets to be exposed as Web services in the larger network.
