The New ShoreTel DECT Phone

By: Kurt Kruger, Senior Manager of Product Operations

DECT-front-chargerThe latest release of ShoreTel’s unified communications solution, ShoreTel 14, was launched today. And with it, we’ve introduced the ShoreTel IP Phone 930D – a feature-rich cordless DECT phone solution ideally suited for those needing a full telephony feature set along with in-building roaming capabilities.

DECT stands for Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications. It’s an industry standard that provides a device, such as a cordless telephone, with access to a fixed telecommunications network via radio. Unlike alternative cordless enterprise phones that sacrifice functionality and quality for mobility, ShoreTel users can step away from their desk without losing the ability to manage incoming inquiries or monitor shared extensions. The IP Phone 930D offers generous talk time and standby times that can easily cover a full day of calls.

Designed for use in the front office or corporate environments, the ShoreTel IP Phone 930D solution seamlessly adds cordless handsets to any ShoreTel 14 installation. DECT handsets use a dedicated frequency band that is less congested than alternative wireless technologies and provide secure communication with voice and data encryption. The ShoreTel IP Phone 930D delivers superior voice performance without the need to worry about radio interference with Wi-Fi or Bluetooth devices, avoiding possible voice quality issues.

  5. What is the range on the phones?

  6. Hi, Thank you for your question.
    The 930D DECT phone range is up to 300 meters in free air. Inside a building it’s on average 50 meters, but concrete walls/floors, elevator shafts etc. will further reduce that range.
