This blog post will explore the advantages of Gigaset multicell DECT systems over single-cell, Wi-Fi and other manufacturers’ systems.
- Greater Coverage and Roaming
The most immediate advantage of a multicell system is the simple fact that they give you greater coverage and roaming capabilities. Using a single-cell system with repeaters can work in smaller situations, however, the number of simultaneous calls can be greatly limited by doing this.
- More endpoints than single-cell systems
Using a multicell system rather than single-cell allows for a greater number of handsets to run off the system, as they have more antennas to speak to which in themselves are often more powerful.
- More simultaneous calls
The need for more handsets, of course, brings about the need for more simultaneous calls, which the Gigaset N720IP system can handle with ease, up to a maximum of 30 per system.
- Greater reliability
Using a Wi-Fi based system can sometimes result in dropped calls when a handset needs to handover between access points. Using a DECT system, however, eliminates this problem and allows a “pre-handover”, if you will, once the system detects the handset is leaving the range of its current base.
- Cheaper handsets
Wi-Fi based portable handsets will often retail for hundreds of pounds, whereas the S650H at the time of writing retails for £74.99, meaning the handsets and the system as a whole can be far cheaper.
- Greater choice of handsets
Many systems will allow you the base stations and a single handset, which will be expected to handle all possible situations. The Gigaset system, however, will offer an S650H for everyday use, an R650H for tougher environments and outdoor use, and an SL750H for higher-end executive use.
