The next generation of Logitech peripherals will be equipped with Logi Bolt. This is a new technology for making wireless connections in a secure and platform-independent manner with, among other things, mice and keyboards.
With the introduction of Logi Bolt, the hardware manufacturer wants to meet the changing needs of today’s business IT. “The technology makes it possible for companies to keep their diverse workforces productive, collaborative and secure wherever they work,” said Joseph Mingori, general manager (B2B) at Logitech.
Logi Bolt mainly wants to distinguish itself from other wireless technology with better security, a stronger signal and cross-platform compatibility. For example, Logi Bolt provides a secure level of wireless connectivity for Logitech mice and keyboards with Bluetooth Low Energy Security Mode 1, Level 4 (also known as Secure Connections Only Mode) through a new USB receiver.
Logitech further claims that Logi Bolt offers a stronger signal with a reliable, drop-off-free connection up to ten meters. “That’s true even in rooms with lots of simultaneous wireless signals, where Logi Bolt’s latency is up to eight times lower than other commonly used receivers.”
Finally, Logitech devices with Logi Bolt technology are said to be more compatible than most of the competition’s solutions. They work with just about every operating system and platform, including but not limited to Windows, macOS, iOS, iPadOS, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android. This allows IT, managers, to source, source, and distribute efficiently without compatibility or connectivity issues,” the Logitech press release said.
The first business products with the new Logi Bolt technology will hit the market in the coming weeks and months.
