Other applications include wireless networking among computer systems in a small space requiring little bandwidth, and wireless communication among computer output and input devices such as the keyboard, mouse and printer. The Bluetooth protocol is likewise used for transferring files, reminders, calendar appointments and contact details among devices compliant with the communications protocol OBEX (Object Exchange). Bluetooth is now also utilized in controls where infrared was previously used among many others.
