GN Netcom gets first qualification for Bluetooth version 1.2 in headsets
GN Netcom is the first headset manufacturer to be qualified by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group to incorporate the new Bluetooth 1.2 specification in its upcoming products.

Future office and mobile headset products under both the GN Netcom and JABRA brands will be approved to utilize this new version of the standard along with new mobile phones supporting the new features in the Bluetooth 1.2 specification. Pictured is a current GN 6110 dual use Bluetooth headset (read review).

The new version of the Bluetooth specification incorporates features such as Adaptive Frequency Hopping (AFH) technology and Fast Connect. AFH minimizes interference between Bluetooth and 2.4 GHz-based wireless applications such as WLANS (wireless local area networks) or Wi-Fi operating in the same environment such as in offices or hotspots. Fast Connect allows users to significantly reduce the time required to establish a connection between devices. The new standard is also compatible with Bluetooth v.1.1 products.

"In a business environment, one of the challenges of integrating many wireless technologies is interference. Bluetooth has always worked well with other standards like 802.11. With the Adaptive Frequency Hopping feature in the new Bluetooth 1.2 specification, interference is cut down even further in the unlicensed spectrum where many wireless technologies must play together," said Mike McCamon, marketing director of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group. "It is encouraging to see companies like GN Netcom take a leadership role in helping to move the industry forward by developing products using this new specification.".
