What is Bluetooth?Bluetooth takes its name from Harald Bluetooth, a Viking and former King of Denmark who was renowned for his ability to help people communicate. Most notably he united Denmark and Norway.
Today Bluetooth is a technology that unites different types of electronic equipment from various manufacturers enabling them to communicate with each other without the use of wires.
In the mobile phone market Bluetooth wireless technology connects headsets to phones, giving the user a true hands-free experience and a greater sense of freedom.
Safe and secure
Bluetooth is safe. It utilizes radio signals 1000 times weaker than the standard wireless technologies used by mobile phones. It is secure too, so once a connection has been made no-one can listen in and there is no interference from other Bluetooth devices either. It works over distances up to 33 feet and connected units do not need to have line of sight.
Easy to use
Headsets are connected to phones using a procedure called ‘pairing.’ By following a few simple steps, a phone can be paired with a headset in a matter of minutes.
