Toshiba Bluetooth Stack
Toshiba Bluetooth Stack comes packing the software and complementary drivers needed by Toshiba notebook owners for the integrated Bluetooth adapters present in their laptops in order to make the best of them. Of course, you can try deploying other programs for this specific task; however, they may just not be 100% compatible with the built-in component.
Bluetooth stacks often refer to implementations of the Bluetooth protocol stack that can be sorted into two different categories, one for general-purpose implementations, usually for desktop computers, that are written with emphasis on feature-richness and flexibility. In this case, support for additional Bluetooth profiles can typically be added through drivers.
On the other hand, Bluetooth peripheral devices make use of embedded system implementations that are intended for utilization within less-demanding, limited-resource devices. Toshiba first announced a notebook design integrating a Bluetooth antenna inside the lid in 2001. Soon after that, the company released the first two notebook models comprising dual Bluetooth / Wi-Fi integration.
Toshiba went on creating own Bluetooth stack for use on Microsoft Windows and licensed their stack to other OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) such as Dell, Sony, Fujitsu Siemens as well as ASUS laptops. Furthermore, the Toshiba stack can also be used with USB Bluetooth dongles or PCMCIA cards from numerous vendors.
Amongst the comprehensive list of Bluetooth profiles, the Toshiba stack supports A2DP, DUN, FAX, SPP, FTP, HID, LAP, OPP, PAN, HSP, HDP, HCRP, BIP, HFP (including Skype support) as well as AVRCP.
As Bluetooth technology progresses every year, Toshiba Bluetooth Stack is nothing but a must for any Toshiba laptop including such adapters. It makes the Bluetooth feature on your notebook 100% functional and squeezes all of its power in order to provide the best results both speed and stability-wise.
If you ever wanted to quickly transfer files to and from your Toshiba laptop or properly utilize the Bluetooth device for various other jobs, then Toshiba Bluetooth Stack is the way to make it happen.
