Sybase has introduced iAnywhere Blue SDK (Software Developer Kit), which supports the Bluetooth Core Specification version 3.0+ High Speed (HS), and is now available for Android devices.
Sybase said the new offering is developed to reside on Android-based computing platforms and provide large number of profiles to users with short range wireless connectivity on a wide variety of devices.
The Blue SDK supports both Bluetooth and 802.11 wireless connectivity to Android devices with faster and reliable data transfer for applications including streaming video transmissions and playing MP3 files.
The company said that the new Bluetooth stack benefits: designed for use with Bluetooth v3.0+HS compliant dual mode transceiver, offering both Bluetooth and any alternate MAC / PHY (AMP) connectivity; and increased data rates of 20Mbps or up to 20 times that of conventional Bluetooth protocols for fast file transfer of MP3 playlists plus audio and video streaming when using an 802.11 AMP.
Sybase mobility product marketing senior director Dan Ortega said Bluetooth functionality continues to evolve and Sybase continues to be at the forefront in providing customers the tools that empower end users of all types with unmatched wireless communication capabilities.
"By adding Blue SDK for Android v1.0 to our SDK portfolio, Sybase further extends Bluetooth support to our extensive and open device support strategy for Sybase’s customer and partner ecosystem," Ortega said.
