What is a DECT Phone System?

Lorna Bailey September 10, 2019

If you’re in the market for a new phone system, DECT is probably just another confusing telecoms acronym that you’ve seen floating around. 

In this article, we’ll give you a quick explanation of what DECT is and what it can do for your business. 

Let’s get started! 

What is DECT?

DECT stands for Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telephony. It is a wireless digital technology that allows you to make and take calls using a cordless telephone handset.

How does DECT Work?

To keep it simple DECT is made up of two important parts, a base and a handset. The base will receive data (such as incoming calls) and will send this to the handset. When you talk into the speaker on your handset, this data is transferred back to the base. This is how calls are made.

What are the Advantages of DECT?

There are many advantages to using a DECT phone system. The main advantage is the flexibility it offers. 

By using a DECT phone system your team will not have to be tied to a desk and there’s no risk of getting tangled up in cables. 

You will also benefit from great sound quality!

Are There any Disadvantages?

The only minor disadvantage with DECT phones is that, just like your mobile phone, you will need to keep an eye on its battery. 

To make sure your handset is fully charged and ready to use, simply make sure you keep your cordless handset in its base when you’re not using it (for example, when you leave your office at the end of the day try to ensure all handsets are in their bases). 

Why Choose Yo Telecom as your DECT Phone System Provider?

You could easily go out and buy a set of cordless phones from many different high street retailers. This would be a cheap and easy solution to implementing DECT into your business. 

However, by doing this your cordless signal will not reach throughout your entire building. 

The base from a standard DECT phone has a limit on how far it can send signal. So if you have a big building with lots of rooms, it’s unlikely that your phone signal will be able to reach every room. Instead, you will experience lots of crackling on the line and even calls cutting out completely.

At Yo Telecom we use base stations at specific points of your building to ensure you get cordless connection no matter where you are! This is how we guarantee complete cordless coverage.
