- Ericsson’s Bluetooth Qualification Test Facility (BQTF) is ready to qualify any company’s product with the new Bluetooth version 1.2. Ericsson’s methods have been accepted by a Bluetooth Qualification Body (BQB).
Ericsson is now in the middle of testing their own v1.2 baseband, thus ensuring that the customers will be offered a method that is already proven.
In September, the Bluetooth SIG will be adopting the new 1.2 Bluetooth version with better voice quality, improved coexistence with other wireless technologies and faster connection time.
Bluetooth devices including the new version can be expected some time afterwards. But, before the new products reach the market, they must be qualified in one of the world’s 24 officially recognized BQTF’s, such as the full scope laboratory at Ericsson Technology Licensing.
