introduced its new DP715/710 DECT Cordless IP Phone. The DP715/710, Grandstream’s first VoIP cordless phone, is SIP/DECT compliant, works with various major IP PBXs and supports wide range indoor/outdoor radio coverage based on the popular DECT standard, thus giving users the ability to enjoy the benefits of mobility and VoIP for minimum investment. Grandstream is showcasing the DP715/710 at Booth ID2-04 at CommunicAsia this week in Singapore.
The DP715, which includes the DECT handset and the VoIP base station with integrated charger, supports up to 5 distinct SIP accounts and is expandable to a total of 5 handsets and 4 concurrent calls. The DP710 or expansion unit, which includes a DECT phone and charger unit, is used in conjunction with the DP715 base station unit and is situated throughout the home or office for added user convenience.
“The new DP715/710 DECT Cordless IP Phones are an exciting extension of Grandstream’s market leading VoIP product portfolio,” said David Li, CEO of Grandstream. “These new phones provide residential and small-to-medium business users with a flexible, secure, and powerful wireless IP telephony solution that offers affordable mobility beyond the desktop and doesn’t compromise on voice quality or features.”
With an outdoor coverage range of nearly 1,000 feet (about 300 meters) and indoor range of nearly 150 feet (50 meters), the DP715/710 features a 102x80 pixel backlit graphic display, 10-hour talk time, 80-hour standby-time, full duplex speakerphone with acoustic echo cancellation, and rich features associated with VoIP including calling ID, call waiting, transfer, 3-way conference, do-not-disturb, hunt group, 18 polyphonic ringtones, 200 phone book entries (per handset), message waiting, multi-language voice prompt and many more. The DP715/DP710 DECT IP phones also support TLS and SRTP security protection which safeguards account information and encrypts voice conversations thus eliminating eavesdropping concerns typical of legacy analog cordless phones. In addition, the DP715/710 can be automatically and securely provisioned for easy deployment using TFTP, HTTP/HTTPS, and soon TR069 (pending).
