Bangalore, July 15, 2005
- MindTree Consulting, a leading provider of Bluetooth® technology Intellectual Property (IP) and solutions, announced the availability of two Bluetooth wireless technology application profiles – the Phonebook Access Profile (PBAP) and the Basic Printing Profile (BPP).
“Our continuous and targeted focus on Bluetooth wireless technology has helped us offer the best and latest solutions to our customers to achieve their design goals. Specifically, our new EtherMind profile offerings position MindTree as a capable player to focus at multiple levels of the Bluetooth technology applications spectrum in the cell phone and smart phone markets”, said Dr. Raghunath Govindachari, Technical Director of MindTree’s IP Program. He added, “We believe that the consumer electronics and automotive industry segments, besides the cell phone segment, are poised for rapid adoption of Bluetooth technology.”
PBAP is much richer than the Bluetooth Object Push Profile (that could be used to push vCard formatted phonebook entry from one device to another). It helps exchange a wide variety of objects such as contacts, call information, text messages, alarms and calendar information, adding an extra dimension to hands free cell phone usage. BPP allows users of cell phones and PDAs, for the first time, to wirelessly fire prints of text emails, short messages, calendar items, phone book items and formatted documents.
MindTree’s EtherMind Bluetooth Upper Stack is BQB certified/v1.2 qualified, and suitable for embedded and mobile devices, offering a very compact, low footprint solution for applications such as mobile phones/PDAs, telephony devices, hands free automotive units, stereo headsets, mouse/keyboards, portable players, barcode readers and others. MindTree offers both versions of its EtherMind Stack & Profiles - embedded as well as host based and offers customization and porting services around its Bluetooth IP portfolio. About MindTree
