Bluetooth technology, created by Telecom giant Ericsson in 1994, is a proprietary open wireless standard for exchanging data signals over short distances from fixed and mobile devices, creating what are now called personal area networks with high levels of security.
Bluetooth is an effective and clutter free replacement for cabling and it provides a secure way to connect and exchange information between popular electronic devices such as PDA’s, mobile phone, laptops and video game consoles to name a few.
Interestingly enough, the word “Bluetooth” is the English derivation of “Blatand”, the name of a 10th century Danish king who succeeded in uniting numerous disparate Danish and Norwegian tribes into a single unified kingdom- Bluetooth technology does the same with communications protocols by uniting them under one universal standard.
ICON Voice Networks has embraced Bluetooth technology by providing an industry-first internal Bluetooth module that allows users to pair and use a Bluetooth headset with their Iwatsu Icon Series telephone. This effectively gives the end user more choices of comfortable ear piece headsets at significant cost savings than other wireless headset options currently available.
It allows for one touch remote answering and disconnection from calls and alleviates the need to pick-up your telephone's handset. Plus the range is up to 300 plus feet in a normal office environment. Please inquire with our office to see how this technology can benefit your work environment.
