The Sony Bluetooth USB Adapter is an enabling device which allows the host computer system to take advantage of the benefits presented by the open wireless protocol. Bluetooth allows for the implementation of data exchanges across short distances by using short length radio waves as carriers. Being a wireless protocol it can allow the transmission of data either from a fixed or mobile source. Aside from supporting this basic functionality the device driver for the Sony Bluetooth USB Adapter allows for the creation of a Personal Area Network which is basically composed of Bluetooth enabled devices which can pair up with the host controller. The host controller in this case is the computer system where the adapter hardware device is hosted on its Universal Serial Bus interface port. The use of this port allows the device driver and its supported hardware component to implement high speed data exchange.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

The Bluetooth wireless protocol was originally conceived as an alternative to the deployment of RS-232 data cables. However, its distinct advantages has prompted the virtual phasing out of its predecessor and making it an industry standard in wireless data communication. The device driver for the Sony Bluetooth USB Adapter makes it possible for the host controller to connect multiple devices simultaneously without concerning itself with synchronization issues. Although similar in technology Bluetooth should not be confused with Wireless Fidelity or Wi-Fi. Essentially Wi-Fi is considered as an alternative to wired networking environments while Bluetooth is more concerned with data transfer and exchange. Aside from supporting the synchronization between the host controller and the Bluetooth enabled hardware the device driver can also allow connection to a Bluetooth access point. The Sony Bluetooth USB Adapter can also be used to connect to a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone and use it as a modem to connect to the Internet.
