    Bluetooth is a wireless access technology where polling is used to share bandwidth among the nodes. We have introduced a new Poller named Predictive Fair Poller (PFP). We explain the operation of the Predictive Fair Poller and compare it with the conventional Round Robin Poller and the Fair Exhaustive Poller (FEP) for two Best Effort traffic scenarios. We show through simulations that the Predictive Fair Poller is able to divide bandwidth in a fair and efficient manner.
