Conventionally, enterprise services that can be utilized by mobile devices such as E - mail, instant messaging, data transfer, news and event notification have been typically achieved using GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) connections to access internet servers that provide these services. Thus, even in a local area, disadvantages such as full dependence on GPRS service providers, incurred GPRS costs and slow data/communication rates constitute formidable drawbacks. This paper describes a system /Architecture (BTServ) in which these same services can be supplied via Bluetooth, with notable benefits such as high data rates, minimal dependence on external (GPRS) networks, higher security (internet attacks are totally avoided) and reduced cost, in a localized setting such as a corporate house.
