The COMfortel WS-Base IP-DECT multi-cell base station has 11 voice channels, controls radio traffic and acts as the link between the handsets and the IP-DECT server. It is responsible for communication and the wireless connection to DECT handsets in the COMfortel M series.


The standard Ethernet connection and operation with power over Ethernet (PoE), combined with a simple and intuitive Web UI, makes setting up a COMfortel WS-Base quick and easy.

Depending on the physical conditions, each COMfortel WS-Base covers a circular area between 50 and 300 metres in diameter.


The entire IP-DECT wireless system comprises the COMfortel WS-400 IP or COMfortel WS-650 IP servers, the COMfortel WS-Base base stations, optional COMfortel WS-R2/R4 repeaters and COMfortel M-100, M- 210 or M-310 DECT handsets.

Telecommunication solutions for healthcare – Nursing and residential homes

FONtevo offers greater vitality for nursing and residential homes
Sector Employees
Healthcare 17
Caren P., Managing Director with 17 employees

"Some of our residents are still very sprightly but others are dependent on support for every movement. Our nurse call system, which is connected to an alarm server, is therefore extremely important. Although we are well equipped to provide first aid, it is often necessary to make emergency calls. So it's comforting to know that such emergency calls always take priority for the PBX – we have invested in an extremely efficient COMmander 6000RX. Since we recently linked it with the 'tekowin Heim' software however, controlling the telephones is just one of the many things it does. The system helps us with invoicing, provides statistics, archives correspondence – it is quite remarkable how much it can do! It is also handy that we can control all video cameras in and around the building using the telephone, a COMfortel 3600 IP, in the reception area – a real security advantage, because now and again a resident may get 'lost' and suddenly lose their bearings. What's more, our previous DECT solution was outdated and we have replaced it with an IP-DECT solution, also from the same brand. In addition to being more robust, the new cordless telephones COMfortel M-310 are also easy to clean. Especially for us, where everything is subject to special hygiene requirements, this was an extremely important point!"

Telecommunication solutions for healthcare – Private clinic

Dr Henry V., Senior Physician and Hospital Director with 23 employees

"A clinic cannot depend on a good medical reputation alone. Today, efficiency is just as important for the successful running of a clinic as providing optimal care to patients. When choosing our PBX, there were therefore two decisive criteria: it must support both medical operations and administrative processes. We chose a COMmander 6000RX – it controls the nurse call system via the connected alarm server, acts as a switchboard, keeps an eye on the entrance and even helps with invoicing because it is linked to the 'tekowin Heim' software. In practice, it is as though the PBX manages bookings, writes invoices, creates statistics... and incidentally happens to ensure that internal and external telephony also function reliably. Every employee has a cordless telephone (COMfortel M-310) that provides direct access to the switchboard functions such as operating the door opener, for example. Extremely important to us: cleaning using disinfectant can't damage this robust telephone. There is also a COMfortel 3600 IP in every department as this telephone can display images from all of the surveillance cameras on the premises. On the other hand, a modest COMfortel 600 is more than sufficient for consulting rooms, providing a convenient way to make phone calls. All devices from one manufacturer – I am positive that this was a very wise decision."

"We have fairly large premises here with several assembly facilities where our engineers always disappear into a 'dead zone'. In complete ignorance once, we asked one of the 'big names' in the telephone industry just how much such a professional IP DECT solution would cost – we almost fell of our chairs when we heard the amount. It was when looking for alternatives that we then came across a specialised dealer situated just nearby. He carried out a DECT measurement on-site at our premises without further ado, strategically positioned six radio cells (COMfortel IP DECT system with Server WS-650 IP and six WS-Base). Since then, everything has worked perfectly, and we are very happy with our new cordless handsets M-100 which are really insensitive to rough treatment. The best bit: we were able to continue using our existing PBX, a COMmander 6000R, which supplied our 24 analogue desktop phones and both COMfortel 2600 IP phones, even though the entire premises is only called via VoIP. So, we got exactly what we wanted for a fraction of the cost. We then invested the money we saved in video surveillance: there are now four IP cameras mounted in the entrance areas – I can conjure up the images at the touch of a button on the display of my new COMfortel 3600 IP whenever I want to."

"On good days we accept up to eighty incoming calls at our headquarters alone – I cannot and have no desire to accept them all myself. To ensure that no one has to wait for long, the PBX COMmander 6000R sounds whenever anyone is interested in a test drive, is put through to the workshop or wants to offer their vehicle for sale. The whole process is quick and customers are happy that they don't need to explain what they actually want three times over. The best bit: our database is linked directly to the PBX. If, for example, one of my regular customers calls, their name and other important details appear on the display before I've even picked up the receiver. It also works the other way around too: if I want to call a customer, all I have to do is search for them in the central address book and click on the number. And if I don't want to be interrupted during a call, a simple press of a button is all it takes to pass all calls to my secretary. We have fairly large business premises here and three additional locations, but since we installed a COMfortel WS-650 IP multi-cell DECT system, everyone really is contactable at the drop of a hat – even if they are at another site. The DECT handsets – we all have the COMfortel M-100 in various colours – at the other locations are also connected to our switchboard. Nothing has ever made us so easy to contact before."

Oliver K., Authorised Officer with 36 employees

"I was tasked with reviewing our entire communication system and bringing it up-to-date. After obtaining quotes from various providers, we quickly decided on a COMmander 6000. It wasn't down to the price saving alone, but because of the impressive concept as a whole. The system not only controls our IP DECT system down to the last corner of the warehouse, but also proves itself with sales-supporting measures such as special promotions that are advertised by the voicemail system as well as announcements. With almost 20 DECT COMfortel M-100 handsets, we have integrated all departments and areas in such a way that absolutely everyone can be reached. Of course, every department manager also has their own answering machine that is managed centrally by the COMmander. As we have a large sales area including external areas, monitoring is crucial. In this respect, the engineer who installed the system provided fantastic service by installing webcams in the network. Now both our security and office personnel can control cameras individually using the COMfortel 2600 IP and COMfortel 3600 IP telephones and respond appropriately to any incidents straight away."
