We can now offer native cordless DECT phones on the University phone system. The system comprises of two components: A DECT base station and a DECT handset. There is no need for an ATA or a VG224 port.

DECT Access Point

The DECT base stations are quite small (3" x 3" x 1") units designed for wall mounting. They connect into the voice network and can be powered either through their network port or via a separate power unit.

The access point provides coverage across a large area. In trials, the coverage has been much greater than that of consumer DECT base stations. Just like a WiFi access point, the exact coverage range will depend on the nature of the building. A single access point can support multiple handsets at once.

You can deploy multiple DECT access points across a location, and providing there is sufficient signal overlap, a user can roam across access points with no loss of call.

DECT Repeater

A DECT repeater works in conjunction with a DECT access point to increase the signal range for an access point. The repeater has to be able to "see" (via radio) an existing DECT access point. Repeaters are limited to either two or four concurrent calls. They are approximately half the price of a DECT access point. They require a 13A socket and NO network connection. (They do not support PoE)

Two DECT handsets cannot share the same phone number. But a DECT handset can share a number with another Cisco handset (IP Phone, ATA, etc)
