Portable IP Telephone


I hope you can help, last month I bought a Snom370 telephone through yourselves, and wondered if you have a SIP enabled portable telephone as an available option ? We have a team who walk between buildings covering up to 100 sq.meters. We have already tried the Snom M3, but this does not have a far enough reach from the base station.

You could try a Snom M3 Repeater. This will extend the range. If you can arrange the base station in the middle, and repeaters around in a circle then you can cover a huge area. Calls hand over between repeaters as you walk.


Other option is something like a Gigaset S685. The handsets have a `best base` feature where you can register a handset to more than one base station. You need to be a little bit clever with setting up SIP accounts. Each handset needs a SIP account for each base. These then have to be setup to all ring together. This solution does not allow handover while calls are in progress.

A long term option would be the Snom M9 phone. A roaming feature is in the roadmap for this phone, but probably at least 1 year away from launch.
