Siemens Gigaset – Automatic PSTN Failover

All Siemens Gigaset VoIP DECT handsets support 2 VoIP and 1 PSTN / Landline call simultaneously.

Now all of the base stations within the range, have the ability to perform automatic failover to your landline. Quite simply, if for any reason your VoIP service or PBX fails causing your internet connection to go down, the Siemens Gigaset will automatically send calls over the landline connection plugged into the base station instead. No chance of missing an important call.

Just configure your base station to fail over to PSTN on the web interface.

Siemens Gigaset – Copying Address Book to Each Handset

The address book on a Siemens Gigaset DECT Phone can be copied over via the handset to another slave phone registered with the base station, without having to browse to the web interface.

Go to the address book on your handset.

  • Select options on the soft key.
  • From the options menu select copy list.
  • From the generated list select which handset you wish to copy your address book to.
