A piconet is composed of two or more Bluetooth devices in close physical proximity that operate on the same channel using the same frequency-hopping sequence.

An example of a piconet is a Bluetooth-based connection between a cellular phone and a Bluetooth-enabled ear bud.

Bluetooth piconets are often established on a temporary and changing basis, which offers communication flexibility and scalability between mobile devices. Some key benefits of Bluetooth technology are:

Scatternet Edit

Although only one device can serve as the master for each piconet, time division multiplexing (TDM) allows a slave in one piconet to act as the master for another piconet simultaneously, thus creating a chain of networks called a scatternet.
