The Bluetooth Special Interest Group announced the adoption of Bluetooth Core Specification Version 2.0 + Enhanced Data Rate, which brings up transfer speed, lowers power consumption and increases durability of the technology with multiple connections.
The main features of Bluetooth Core Specification Version 2.0 + EDR are 3 times faster transmission speed (up to 10 times in certain cases) (current Bluetooth specification offers 1Mb/s transfer speed), lower power consumption through reduced duty cycle, simplification of multi-link scenarios due to more available bandwidth, backwards compatible to earlier versions, further improved BER (Bit Error Rate) performance.
