While many youngsters probably have no recollection, there was once a time when using a telephone required carrying around the base and receiver with a long cord attached to it. Sometimes you would trip over it or go too far and be reminded of your boundaries. Maybe you even pulled it out of the phone jack by mistake. Ah, how times have changed.
The Simple Solution
Thanks to modern technology, most of us no longer have this problem. The wireless headset is one neat invention that has made our lives much easier, offering hands-free comfort in the home and work setting. Without 50 ft. of cord following you around the office, you can move with ease. Stand, pace, clean up the kitchen – do as you please all while carrying on that all important conversation.
Headsets have become standard accessories in customer support orientated businesses where employees are constantly on the phone. This gives them the ability to freely move their hands and view their computer monitor, all while giving the customer their undivided attention. Such freedoms are beneficial to the corporation, the employee and the customer. Continue reading “Are You Still Tangled Up in Cords?” »
DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication) is the standard for cordless telephony. It is essentially a form of a radio technology designed for voice, data and network applications. DECT phones are common in residential, business and public environments, offering users a range that spans over hundreds of miles. The technology utilizes radio frequencies in the range of 1880 to 1930 MHz. The output power of a DECT device is generally low at 0 to 0.01 watts for a standard cordless phone and around 0.01 to 0.12 watts for a fixed base station.
Health Studies on DECT
A DECT-enabled phone emits a low level of radio signals when in use. These same waves are a large part of our everyday routines, allowing us to enjoy benefits such as television and radio along with an expanding range of wireless devices. Because these emissions have been relied on for so long, radio waves and their safety have been thoroughly studied for well over 50 years. This extensive body of research has been reviewed by a number of expert firms including government agencies, standard-establishing organizations and medical professionals throughout the world. Each entity has drawn the scientific conclusion that no evidence has been established to prove the adverse health effects of the exposure to radio waves as they relate to wireless devices.
