TECHSHIP IS A GLOBAL SUPPLIER OF WIRELESS COMPONENTS
The powerful BlueMod+S50 is Telit’s Bluetooth single mode BT 5-qualified module. This next generation module blends the latest silicon with Telit’s state of the art engineering for an overall richer, more intelligent user experience. Advanced features include NFC Handover and support for Terminal I/O and most GATT based profiles. By doubling the amount of data that devices can transfer, more efficient use of broadcasting channels, improved coexistence in 2.4GHz band and LTE, this efficient module reduces the time required for transmitting and receiving data while facilitating rapid uploads and over-the-air firmware updates for mobile devices.
The significant increase to broadcasting capacity makes the secure BlueMod+S50 an ideal solution for industrial applications and for medical devices. Smartphone con-nectivity and cable replacement applications also ben-efit from the low energy consumption and reliable line-of-sight range of more than 800* meters. (*250m with Android phone and iPhone). With an operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, this high-end Bluetooth module is suit-able for demanding applications and environments. Apps and demo source code for various types of ap-plications are available for Android and iOS.

How can I control my Bluetooth devices on linux?
The easiest way of controlling Bluetooth devices on a Linux host is by using the Bluez package which can be found at the below link: https://github.com/bluez/bluez
It is natively supported from kernel 4.4 and by installing the bluez-utils package you can use the command line tool, bluetoothctl for configuring and pairing your Bluetooth.
Make sure that the bluetooth.service is running on your host device which can be checked with the command,
$ sudo systemctl status bluetooth.service
and started with,
$ sudo systemctl start bluetooth.service
In addition, make sure that the drivers are properly installed and loaded. Sometimes, WiFi drivers only include drivers for WLAN over PCI and an additional set of drivers are needed for Bluetooth to function in parallell over USB.
The package can support earlier kernel verision by backporting the package which supports the below basic features:
3.13 basic bluetooth classic and LE functionality
3.10 basic bluetooth classic
For basic troubleshooting, the Arch Linux wiki has a thorough guide at the following link:
