To enable users enjoy the advantages of using IP networks together with the DECT technology, Aastra has developed radio fixed parts (RFP) with IP interfaces for integrating DECT into IP networks. These radio fixed parts (RFP) are connected to the network like IP terminals. Voice is conveyed via VoIP to the radio fixed part and from the RFP to the air via DECT.
Therefore, employees can always be reached via their call numbers, regardless of whether they are in a branch of the company or at the head office. Using the same IP connections for data and telephony saves additional infrastructure and, thus, costs.
No matter the size and range of the IP network, a single Open Mobility Manager (OMM) is enough to manage all RFPs of the multi-cellular DECT network.
The base stations RFP L43 WLAN and RFP 43 WLAN allow the integration of mobile data transmission via WLAN in parallel using the same network. Central administration of the DECT and WLAN network available via a browser interface.
