I have a project in “facts finding stage” requiring wireless communication between devices in “star” configured network controlled by single ARM /Due processor.
I do not need access to Internet, this will be stand alone network.
While researching my options I came up with this:
" WiFi has longer range , up to 300 feet".
Now both technologies use 2.4GHz ISM band and as such are limited ( by spec / law ) to max RF ERP output.
The question is - how can WiFi claim better range if both technologies use same ISM band?
It also looks as Bluetooth proprietary, whatever than means , data handling process makes the technology to act as wireless / plain modem capable in just passing info thru , hence no "embedded " networking capabilities.
Any to the point / subject commentaries will be appreciated / welcomed.
