The Dell Bluetooth USB adapter was developed in order to implement wireless computing technology for digital environments. This particular device is commonly seen in desktop machines which do not have a built-in Bluetooth adapter. By design, the USB interface port was chosen to host the device primarily to make sure that the highest data transfer rates possible can be achieved. Presently, the USB interface port of a computer system can deliver the fastest transfer rates compared to both the serial and parallel interface ports. The role of the driver for the Dell Bluetooth USB adapter is to make sure initially that the host machine will be able to correctly identify the device and assign the necessary resources required for its operation. Once it has been successfully established in the system, it can now be made available to all installed programs.
