launch a fully certified DECT 6.0 cordless multi-handset Internet phone powered by SunRocket. The E6501S DECT phone will be available through nationwide retail channels beginning this month, starting with one of the nation's largest office superstores.
With an integrated router, users no longer require a separate Internet phone adapter, as full VoIP capabilities are already built in. In addition, because the DECT 6.0 phone operates in the 1.9 GHz frequency band, defined by the FCC specifically for cordless phones, the DECT phone avoids interference problems associated with home networks and other wireless devices operating in the 2.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies -- such as Wi-Fi, microwave ovens and garage door openers.
The E6501S, with its DECT 6.0 technology, also enables:
- An expandable design for up to five total handsets;
- Communications range of more than 650 feet; and
- SIP-compliant VoIP platform.
Retail customers will be able to easily activate the multi-handset cordless unit for Internet phone service by choosing from any of SunRocket's offerings, including its pioneering all-inclusive $199 Annual Edition -- which delivers unlimited free calling throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, enhanced voicemail, over a dozen free built-in calling features, enhanced 911 calling, plus the option to keep their existing phone number.
