Any recommendations for a Remote CORDLESS IP Phone?

RE: Remote Cordless Phone

Might be best with a standard analogue cordless phone connected to something like a Cisco SPA112, which will connect to the PBX as a SIP device and then allows any analogue phone connected to work on an IP system.

Spectralink WiFi phone?

RE: Remote Cordless Phone

Cisco 8821? It's a handheld wireless IP Phone. Reasonable price for a wireless IP Phone.

WIFI phones are horrible
much better with a DECT solution.

Do things on the cheap & it will cost you dear

RE: Remote Cordless Phone

Thanks for the suggestions. However, I thought only the Avaya 9600 Series phones and the E and J Series phones could be connected remotely.

RE: Remote Cordless Phone

The Cisco ATA can be connected remotely, you just need to configure the system to accept remote SIP extensions, amend the remote SIP port for TCP or UDP (depending on how you setup the ATA) and then configure the ATA to connect to the public IP address of the firewall that has a NAT rule to route the traffic on the amended SIP port to the IPO. I know this works as I have it working for a customer who wanted to retain their wireless conference phone.


RE: Remote Cordless Phone

Gigaset DECT SIP are cheap and reliable.
But a VPN is always mandatory for save connections.
