How production companies keep in touch
"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 six COMfortel WS-500M). Since then, everything has worked perfectly, and we are very happy with our new cordless handsets M-730 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 D-600 whenever I want to."
