Among the features that everyone will appreciate is its utilization of DECT 6.0 technology. DECT is an acronym for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications. Cordless phones have a base station that acts as a miniature radio broadcast station which transmits your phone calls through your landline to the radio tuners built into the cordless handset. DECT phones are available with different radio frequencies. The older cordless phones operated at 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz. The latest, state-of-the-art cordless phones are DECT 6.0 and operate at 1.9 GHz.
All DECT 6.0 cordless phone models are digital, rather than analog. Digital transmission provides clear phone conversations that sound crystal clear with less static. DECT 6.0 technology also provides enhanced security against eavesdropping and an improved operating range over the older 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz models. Best of all, it is virtually immune to interference from WiFi, Bluetooth, Baby Monitors, and other wireless equipment.
