The top features to look for in a SIP mobility phone

Posted by Whitney Morris on Aug 23, 2018 10:55:52 AM

Do your employees move to and from their desks—or the back warehouse? With SIP cordless phones, they can do just about everything on a cordless handset that they can do on a deskset—hold, transfer, conference, and even intercom between other handsets.

These features can help an active business stay connected to customers:

  1. Key system emulation
    Easily handle calls with shared line appearances or shared call appearances across all cordless phones without the need for support from your provider. You can answer, hold and resume calls on any phone at the touch of a button. You still gain the benefits of advanced SIP features like voicemail, auto attendants and DID routing from your provider.

  2. Easy wireless installation
    Many cordless handsets and desksets can be easily paired with the press of a button. You may only need one ethernet connection and simple provisioning on the DECT base for easy deployment.

  3. Programmable line keys
    Program backlit line keys right on the cordless phone to give you one button hold and resume from any cordless handset or deskset. You can also program a line key for a private extension or other function.

  4. Clear mobility with DECT 6.0 digital technology
    Many systems offer DECT 6.0 sound quality and reception, which provides strong protection against wiretapping. DECT also ensures the best call range while not interfering with wireless routers.

  5. Scalability
    Look for systems where you can register many cordless phones to the DECT cordless base station, and program each one with its own phone number or extension.

  6. Generous talk time
    You don’t have to worry about needing to charge mid-call. Some cordless phones offer seven days standby and nine hours of talk time.

  7. Advanced call handling
    Impress customers with comprehensive call handling features that are compatible with hosted and open-source PBX platforms.

  8. Flexibility
    Some cordless phones support up to eight SIP lines or accounts, so you can manage multiple calls with advanced call handling features.

  9. Convenient mounting
    Make the most of tight spaces. DECT cordless base stations can be free standing or wall-mounted.
