Are you searching for a new cordless phone? Today there are a wide range of options to choose between. Would you want a budget option or a model packed full of the latest features?

'If you are not sure where to begin I would suggest that you consider a Dect 6.0 cordless phone. These feature the latest wireless technology and provide a quality that is far and above those cordless models that were available even a few years ago.

Dect 6.0 technology conforms to the latest global standards in communication. They are available in a number of different frequencies to suit particular environments. Unlike many cordless phones, the models that take advantage of the Dect 6.0 technology are not prone to interference and distortion on the line.

This is a more important factor today as we now have a larger number of digital and electronic devices in our homes and offices. With the additional advent of wi-fi pots there is a greater congestion in most frequencies.

Dect 6.0 phones have their own dedicated frequency, 1.9 GHz. This means that the device does not get affected when near to a wi-fi network, Bluetooth device, or other equipment which gives off electromagnetic radiation.

This frequency also allows the handsets to be used at long distances from the actual base station. A range of up to one hundred and fifty feet is now possible; this should be adequate for all but the largest of properties.

One major problem with many older cordless phones is the risk of eavesdroppers. The encryption used was basic to say the least. A Dect 6.0 call would be far more difficult to intercept and decipher.

Every time a call is made, a new unique encryption key is used giving these phones a very secure function. Have you noticed that energy efficiency is now a buzzword when it comes to electrical gadgets?

Phones are no different. We would not want to choose a cordless handset from which the battery only gives power for a couple of hours. The technology used in Dect phones allows for a much longer talk time and stand by.

There are phones on the market using Dect 6.0 which can provide up to eighteen hours of talk time before needing to be recharged. As Dect is not owned by one particular company the costs of the associated phones can often be seen as economical. Most major manufacturers are producing models that make full use of this latest technology.
