It capitalizes both packet data as well high-quality wireless voice on a single network. The solution consists of three DECT 6.0 portable handsets and IP-DECT base stations, which is capable of transmitting and receiving voice packets through wirelessly. These voice packets can be directly registered to an IP-PBX or to a TDM-PBX using the Ascom VoIP Gateway.
