The MSI Bluetooth EDR Device supports an open wireless protocol that is used for the efficient exchange of data across limited distances either from a fixed or mobile source. The technology behind the MSI Bluetooth EDR Device allows for the creation of a PAN (Personal Area Network) that may include a number of wireless devices. The EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) feature supported by the device driver of the MSI Bluetooth EDR Device was first introduced in the second version of the Bluetooth technology. This functionality allows for the delivery of data packets at speed that can reach 3Mbps depending on the environmental conditions that can affect the mode of transmission. The Bluetooth 2.0 protocol supported by the driver of MSI Bluetooth EDR Device maintains backward compatibility to allow for interconnection with Bluetooth capable devices that are based on older technology.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
The EDR feature made possible by the driver of the MSI Bluetooth EDR Device establishes a faster rate of data transfer that is normally in the range of 2.1Mbps. To increase the rate other radio transmission technologies are resorted to. The EDR feature makes use of a combined technology based on the Phase Shift Keying (PSK) modulation and the Gaussian Frequency Shift Keying (GFSK) modulation. The combination of both modulation technologies results in the additional 1Mbps data transfer rate increase. The rate of complexity is also reduced when dealing with simultaneous multiple connections. The improved handling can be attributed to the increase in the available bandwidth. Power consumption is also lowered when taking into account the reduction in the duty cycle. The driver can support Streaming Mode which is a simplified mode that does not use flow or transmission control. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and MSI Bluetooth EDR Device errors before installing any driver updates.
