Detailed Information for the Best Practice: 9-8-8607

Number 9-8-8607
Priority Important
Description Blue tooth Power: Network Operators should configure Bluetooth devices to use the lowest power that meets business needs. Class 3 (encrypts all traffic) devices transmit at 1 mW and cannot communicate beyond 10 meters, while class 1 devices transmit at 100 mW to reach up to 100 meters. For best results, use mode 3 to enforce link authentication and encryption for all Bluetooth traffic, and discourage business use of devices that support only mode 1 (no encryption).
