The fast-paced working environment in many businesses today means reliable communication between departments is paramount for businesses to function effectively. For example, the healthcare industry needs a communication device with all the functions to provide full patient care, protect lone workers, and to alert and inform staff at all time in different departments to any emergencies or concerns.
So how can this be achieved?
In more recent years, cordless phones are becoming much more customary in both the home and the workplace. DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) is a digital wireless technology, that uses time division multiple access (TDMA) to transmit radio signals to phones. This type of technology is ideally placed for smaller areas with a large number of users, making it ideal for larger businesses with multiple site locations.
DECT has 5 main benefits:
- Cordless Private Branch Exchange (PBX) – A PBX is a system within an organisation that allows calls to be switched between users, while still allowing them to share a number of external phone lines. The main benefit is to save cost of requiring additional lines for every single user within that business, which would be of particular use for those working in large warehouses and the healthcare environment. This means a company can connect and redistribute signals by radio antenna to a large number of users within a company.
- Wireless Local Loop (WLL) – The WLL can be installed, which means people can be connected by a cordless phone that uses signals via an antenna, rather than a wired local loop. For businesses whose staff are on the go, this cordless functionality is invaluable on time and productivity.
- GSM/DECT internetworking – DECT can work with GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) so staff are free to roam around with a telephone from an indoor environment to outdoor. A dual mode system automatically searches for a DECT connection and then looks for a GSM connection, when DECT is not available.
- Two-way speech communication, text and data messaging – staff in different departments or locations can be kept in the loop and alerted at all times to different emergencies, issues or concerns.
