That you have to "hope" for this functionality shows that Bluetooth has been kind of a wreck when it comes to consumer marketing and reliability. I'm not sure there's anything technologically stopping seemless bluetooth roaming, but there might be some interoperable barriers with the way device makers implement their BT wireless protocols?

Perhaps everything will be good by Bluetooth 5.0?

Well, that's actually how most devices use BT and WiFi -- with the exception of tethering via bluetooth to access the internet. But it doesn't necessarily have to be that way. 

Bluetooth, as others have mentioned here, has had a rocky reputation with reliability and standards -- whereas WiFi seems to have somehow avoided that fate even though it's gone through several incarnations of 802.11 letters a/b/g/n/etc/etc..

Re: Bluetooth
The walls thing is interesting. I'd have thought fewer walls would mean a better signal.

Re: Bluetooth
For me, part of the issue is the pairing process. It seems like blue tooth always takes an extra step.

For some reason I always associate blue tooth with peripherals and wifi with data.

Bluetooth Cassia IoT Standards
The unimpressive performance of Bluetooth technology is due to lack of standardization in the industry and interoperability across platforms.

No matter what industry standards and interoperability are both needed. Cassia has found the solution to providing high quality products.

Bluetooth Cassia IoT
The industry needs products to speed up development.

"The new routers are optimized for indoor settings and can be mounted on a wall or ceiling, or placed on a desk or counter. One -- the X1000 -- also is considered optimal for outdoor environments." This is exciting.

Seamless Bluetooth roaming, is that even possible? I hope it is with Cassia IoT.

Bluetooth Cassia
Finally a company is working to improve the Bluetooth. I have been disappointed with the Bluetooth service since I purchased my first Bluetooth and I have purchased every brand and none of them provide high quality service on a continuous basis.

Thank you Cassia!

Re: Many years ago..
WiFi certainly seem synonomous with "the internet" to a lot of people. And Bluetooth is some weird thing that people think only works with speakers, maybe... So Bluetooth definitely has some marketing to do if it's going to ever try to compete with WiFi. 

But I suspect WiFi Direct may confuse some users, too... So maybe WiFi is shooting itself in the foot by trying to encroach on the Bluetooth market?
