cordless VoIP



  • I'm looking for a cordless VoIP solution. It's for a dispatcher that gets a low volume of calls and doesn't want to be tied to the desk. The office has solid wifi, but I think the DECT would work well. It doesn't need to have long talk time, but it should be easy to answer the call and transfer the call. If someone knows of something with a dedicated transfer button, that would be better than fumbling through menus while the caller is sitting there in awkward silence.

    I found the Grandstream dp750 + 720 and the Yealink W60P. Does anyone have any experience with either of these or something similar?

    I've not used the Yealink W60P, but have a number of the W52P in production. They work great.

    Uniden makes a DECT series that I am looking at for another customer because it has zero handoff between base stations. But that is for wide area coverage, that you say is not needed.



  • This is the Uniden I was looking at.

    Have not bought a test unit yet.



  • @jaredbusch I think I'll get the W60P and see how it goes. Thanks for the input.

    We use the W52P here in the office. It's been very good. I support some at a Fortune 500, too.

    We use those here.

    The W60P is $128 vs the W52P for $108.

    What is it that makes you want to pay $20 more per phone?

    edit: That is the cost of a single handset with a base station

    300% talk time is nice. That's the only big benefit that I see. Larger display but... who cares.

    Mostly I'd like to play with it. I'm willing to pay the extra $20 for that.

    BTW, where are you getting those prices? Amazon prime is ~ $170 others are around $140 before shipping.

    Bingo. They seem sto have the best "consistent" pricing. Sometimes Amazon is better, sometimes not, when shipping is added.
