Diverse Group of Industry Leaders Promote Technology to Enable a Wireless World

The five founding companies of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), Ericsson, IBM Corporation, Intel Corporation, Nokia and Toshiba Corporation, today announced that 3Com Corporation, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft Corporation and Motorola Inc. will join them to form the Promoter group of the Bluetooth SIG. The charter of the Promoter group is to lead the efforts of the Bluetooth SIG, by creating a forum for enhancing the Bluetooth specification and providing a vehicle for interoperability testing. The acceptance of the Bluetooth wireless technology is unprecedented, with more than 1,200 companies already having joined the SIG, as adopters, since its inception less than two years ago. The magnitude and reach of the Bluetooth specification, as well as the emergence of new applications led to the decision to broaden the group. Promoter group companies bring diversity, expertise and depth of experience to the Bluetooth SIG.
