Pair your Yealink Wireless Handsets with Base stations:

What is DECT?

DECT is the wireless signalling technology that is primarily used to connect cordless phones to a base station and the base station is linked to your hosted VoIP service. 

DECT is its own technology, designed for voice and operating on its own isolated frequency so that they don’t soak up bandwidth on a wireless network.

What is a DECT base station?

A DECT base station bridges that gap between a PBX system, your internet connection and the cordless handsets. DECT base stations can provide a range of up to around 50-100m between handsets and base stations indoors, without DECT managers or repeaters.

What is a DECT manager?

DECT managers provide seamless handover for handsets between base stations, which expands the range of the cordless handsets, and ensures a reliable connection.

In the past, repeaters were often used to provide this handover, however, DECT base managers provide a more steadfast, modern solution suitable for large workspaces.
