What is Multi-Cell DECT? Simply put, it means that a cordless phone can “roam” between various base stations without losing the call. Yealink’s Multi-Cell DECT solution allows up to 100 handsets to be connected to up to 30 base stations, all seamlessly handing over calls and allowing users to roam as they please.
Taking the DECT base station range into account (50M indoors, 300M with clear line of sight) this provides a massive area of coverage when fully populated! Of course, most businesses will not just deploy phones over a large flat surface, and the Yealink Multi-Cell IP DECT solution is ideal for bridging the coverage dead spots between multi-level buildings. Unlike Wi-Fi based cordless phones which are prone to interference and bad user experience with incorrect setup, DECT remains one of the best high voice quality, low interference and secure VoIP communication methods. Multi-Cell DECT, combined with Yealink’s industry leading design is also revolutionising the traditional office environment, by bringing DECT to your desktop phone and your boardroom, as a conference phone!
As part of the refinements expected later this year, Yealink will allow for your complete office to be connected to its Multi-Cell base solution. This is great news for both installers and end-users, as it means install times are cut down, the requirement for trenching/trunking is significantly reduced, and there’s a cost saving by not deploying Ethernet cables.
