GN Netcom Launches Wireless Headset for Business Professionals

NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE - GN Netcom announced the introduction of the GN 9120. A wireless headset that can be used up to 300 feet from its charging station. The product also offers conferencing capabilities. The GN 9120 provides up to eight hours of talk time and allows as many as four users to be synched into the same conference call from individual headsets. The GN 9120 was designed to offer business professionals a tool that allows them to continue working even when they are hundreds of feet away from their desk, thereby increasing productivity. The GN 9120 transmits on the 2.4 GHz frequency and uses the Digital Spread Spectrum protocol initially developed for secure military communications. The signal switches channels 90 times per second, providing security and privacy while ensuring that the signal does not interfere with other signals in the 2.4 GHz spectrum, such as increasingly popular WiFi networks. To further enhance security, the GN 9120 features 64-bit digital encryption and uses intelligent power management, which automatically regulates the signal strength according to how far the unit is from its base. This averts interception by allowing the signal to go no further than it needs to go. The GN 9120 converts into two wearing styles. In addition to a traditional headband, the GN 9120 can be worn directly on one ear. In addition, the GN 9120 is offered in three boom styles. Both volume and answering controls are located on the earpiece so conversation levels can be adjusted from anywhere within the 300-foot range. By pairing the GN 9120 with the GN 1000 Remote Handset Lifter, calls can be answered and terminated from that same range. The GN 9120 has a $349 list price and will be available through HelloDirect!, existing telecommunications products distributors and various retail outlets.
