DECT or Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications is a wireless standard used for home or office phones that allows users to make and receive phone calls without the handset physically connected to the phone or base station.

A Multi-Cell DECT solution allows for the use of where multiple base stations to be placed are placed throughout the building for increased coverage and handset support. This allows users’ cordless DECT phones to roam and connect between the multiple base stations without dropping losing a call. The multi-cell DECT solution is perfect for small to medium businesses and large even enterprise applications, including multinational offices, warehouses, and industrial locations solutions where great mobility and coverage is required over multiple floors with many simultaneous users.
