VoIP telephone manufacturer, snom technology AG, has unveiled a new lineup of IP-based cordless DECT business phones and base station – the snom M65 IP DECT phone, M700 multi-cell base station, and the M5 DECT repeater.
The M65 handset combines business communications functionality with the intuitive features offered by mobile carriers. It is designed for businesses that require mobile coverage across several floors or throughout large buildings.† †
The M65 phone has a two-inch backlit color display and a backlit keypad for dialing in poor lighting conditions. Other features include wideband audio (including speakerphone), six polyphonic ringtones, vibration setting for incoming calls, dual internal antennas, and talk time of up to 17 hours between charges.
The cordless DECT phone offers expanded range and is operational up to about 130 feet beyond its base station in a typical office environment. Shop floors can expect range of about 195 feet and about 300 feet for production areas, without obstacles.
When used with the new snom M700 base station, the M65 features voicemail, call forwarding, call lists, caller ID, direct search in a corporate directory, 3-way conferencing, auto answer, two simultaneous calls, and other capabilities.
The new snom M700 multi-cell base station offers expanded coverage over several floors or throughout large buildings. It links multiple M700 base stations together to form a network enabling free movement and seamless handover between base stations for uninterrupted calls while moving from one base station to the next.
The M700, which can be used in single cell or multi-cell configuration, supports up to 200 handsets, 40 base stations, and 100 repeaters in the same installation. The base station supports HD audio and synchronize themselves with no additional hardware needed.†
The new snom M5 repeater, which includes DECT encryption, is designed to increase reception range and bridge any gaps between base stations, ensuring the continuity of calls and eliminating blind spots.
The snom M65 DECT phone and M700 base station are interoperable with all major VoIP systems, and will be available in mid-October. The M5 repeater will be available later this year.
