We're moving to fibre soon, and want to replace our Uniden DECT cordless phone that has very poor sound quality. 

 

Wondering whether we should look to get another DECT phone or move to a VOIP cordless phone. We only have 1 phone line at the moment, moving to 2 later this year.

 

Voice call quality and clarity is our most important criteria.

 

Recommendations or suggestions welcome.  Thanks.

Personally I would just stick with DECT. (maybe time to upgraded to a newer DECT handset?)

 

DECT uses 1.9GHz so that alone is a great benefit. Its has far better range than 5GHz or 2.4GHz Wifi networks, plus no interference from neighbour wifi networks.

 

VOIP handsets over wifi have lots of challenges like smooth handover functions between different AP's while roaming indoors, QOS will need to be setup properly too.  Not impossible to get working flawlessly, just lots of effort could be involved.

Hi, most if not all VOIP cordless phones I have used use DECT for the wirless leg, can recommend siemens and Panasonic models, you can have upto 5 or 6 handsets on each base statation, each is on an independent sip account.

Yep, definitely go VoIP Dect phone for best call quality. I've used the Yealink IP Dect phones with great success.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Hi, should say I too have deployed a large number of Yealink DECT sets, they work very well, but for me personally I found the handsets a little small, the keys in particular.

Thank you both.

 

For SIP I was looking at the Yealink SIP-W52P but might see it instore first to check sizing.

 

Or Panasonic brand DECT if we don't go for VoIP.
