CSR gives first demonstration of IPv6 over Bluetooth wireless technology

6/13/2002 - CSR (Cambridge Silicon Radio) today helped to demonstrate IPv6 running over Bluetooth during the Bluetooth Congress presentation by Jawad Khaki, corporate vice president of Windows Networking and Communications at Microsoft. The demonstration, using a CSR Bluetooth chip with on-chip IPv6 stack, between a DVD player and a Microsoft Windows XP notebook PC, integrated a web server running directly on CSR's BlueCore2 Bluetooth chip into a consumer DVD player. This first demonstration of IPv6 running over Bluetooth wireless technology shows how standard Internet solutions can be used with Bluetooth. A standard web browser accesses the web server resident on the Bluetooth chip in the DVD player to provide the user interface in the browser on the PC. While this demonstration shows the PC in close proximity to the DVD player, it could reside anywhere on the Internet enabling remote control of IPv6 devices. "Connecting and controlling a wide range of devices through the Internet is a prime goal of IPv6. This goal is now achieved for any Bluetooth enabled device via BlueCore2" said James Collier, Co-founder and Technical Director, CSR. "CSR is delighted to be working with Microsoft to make this vision a reality."
