"In demonstrating the operation of Bluetooth and Bluetooth Smart devices in the presence of Wi-Fi and TLPS systems in close proximity, we had little doubt that the devices would perform flawlessly. Our past experiences with Bluetooth-based devices and applications has shown us that the technology can adapt and operate in even the most challenging interference conditions, due to its use of agile frequency hopping and interference avoidance. It is certainly one of the most advanced and robust wireless data protocols in use today." - Mike Needham, Roberson and Associates
