What’s the truth behind Bluetooth? Originallydesigned with a long unique PIN, it oered goodsecurity, but was too complex or consumers to inputand remember. Flooded by customer service calls,manuacturers downsized to a our-digit deaultpin (0000) – “automating out” the saeguards thatwould have made it eective. As hackers got smarterand their attacks grew, so did concerns about usingBluetooth in mission critical applications.Yet Bluetooth is capable o being a secure solutionwhen it’s 128-bit encryption is properly keyed andturned on. The real security hole or earlier versionso Bluetooth was “pairing”. Because pairing wasbroadcast over the air, hackers could listen in romhundreds o yards away and access the credentialsbeing exchanged.With advanced technology, we’ve made MissionCritical Wireless a much more secure ft or missioncritical applications than conventional Bluetoothsolutions. Hackers are thwarted by pairing over a newultra-short range “touch” connection that hackerscannot intercept. The combination o ultra-short rangeprivacy and strong keys make this wireless systemsae enough or mission critical applications.
- Mission Critical Wireless
We looked or a better way to enhance Bluetooth’ssecurity and created an ultra-short range “out oband” data link or exchanging device credentials.As a result, Motorola’s Mission Critical WirelessEarpiece pairs within an inch o the radio and thatexchange is virtually undetectable beyond a ewinches. Since you must be that close to pair, youcan be confdent your accessory is connecting withyour radio. With Mission Critical Wireless, discoveryis turned o and a hacker won’t even know yourearpiece is there.Motorola’s “out o band” pairing system acceleratesyour job – taking only two seconds to pair and lessthan fve seconds or the wireless connection tobe ready to use. You get an immediate and secureconnection with just a “touch”. During the “touch”,the Bluetooth IDs and a strong 128 bit key areexchanged, ensuring transmission security is virtuallyunbreakable and brute orce attacks on its encryptionare extremely difcult.*From a K-9 unit on patrol to a SWAT team on acovert mission, you want to communicate withoutcomplications or distractions. With our MissionCritical Wireless, you won’t have to key in codes orfddle with equipment. Just move your radio withinan inch o any mission critical accessory to activateit immediately.
WE’VE GIVEN BLUETOOTH “TEETH”.IT’S MORE SECURE THAN EVER BEfORE.
ACTIVATES IN AN INSTANT WITH jUST A “TOUCH”.
