In some of these phones, multiple handsets are also provided. These base stations have a proper range like 400 m-600m and any user can talk easily within this range. Manufacturers assign range to each base station accordingly so that voice quality remains as per standards. This is because range is inversely proportional to the voice quality.
There are number of applications provided by the DECT phones. Some of the important ones are:
1) PBX (Private Branch Exchange):
2) WLL (Wireless Local loops)
