TalkSwitch has debuted the TS-850i high-performance cordless DECT phone. The TS-850i uses SIP for standards-based VoIP connectivity and also works with a landline, and can be located anywhere in a home or office without a nearby phone jack.
The TS-850i’s range is up to 1,000 feet outside and 150 feet inside, and it provides eight hours of talk time or 240 hours of standby time per charge.
Additional features of the TS-850i include auto-detection and configuration of the handsets and multiple handset-per-base capability (with up to three simultaneous calls per base). Using DECT 6.0 technology, the TS-850i is less expensive and easier to deploy than comparable Wi-Fi sets, and bases can be located anywhere on the LAN for maximum coverage in the office, the company said.
The TS-850i also offers caller ID, backlit color display, message waiting light, six levels of ringer volume, adjustable key sounds, 170-entry phone book, speed dial, and call log for incoming, outgoing and missed calls.
The complete TS-850i set, base plus handset, is $299, and extra handsets with chargers are $149 each. Each base supports a maximum of eight handsets and you can use up to five bases per location. The TalkSwitch TS-850i requires a TalkSwitch VS or CA/CVA phone system running system software 6.11 or higher.
