TARGUS Australia has released a Bluetooth adaptor that delivers reliable peripheral wireless connection anywhere within a 100m radius. The USB Bluetooth Adaptor (Class 1) has a similar form factor to a memory stick (5.6cm x 2cm x1.1cm). It uses the latest version of the radio protocol to provide universal connectivity to up to seven Bluetooth-enabled peripherals.
It plugs into a USB port and allows connection to access points, printers and other peripherals. The increased range is valuable in large conference rooms.
The adaptor integrates PC and mobile phone technologies, providing greater flexibility for voice and messaging communications. A PC can be used to receive and respond to text messages sent to a Bluetooth mobile phone. The system also provides 128-bit encryption and authentication coupled with plug and play convenience.
It offers data transfer rates of up to a megabit per second. It supports Windows 98SE/ME/2000 and XP along with Mac OS 10.2 and higher.
