In today's world, there is an increasing demand of high data transfer rates in the IT industry which is highly achieved at the expense of a large amount of energy. The most common way to establish communication between the devices is to use Wi-Fi whether it is being used to browse internet or being used to transfer the data. The basic Wi-Fi offers high bandwidth which is much greater when compared to what Bluetooth provides. At the same time, while using mobile phones in specific, Wi-Fi uses a lot more power as compared to Bluetooth (active as well as inactive mode), which reduces the battery efficiency of the mobile phones. To overcome this issue, we propose to use Bluetooth and Wi-Fi alternatively by switching between these technologies based on the application requirements demand raised instead of performing the switching process based on the bandwidth used. The proposed scheme doesn't require any change to the mobile applications but still increases the battery efficiency of the mobile devices and reduces the power consumption of data transfer.
