Q & A: What is Single-Cell Vs. Multi-Cell?
With DECT technology becoming more and more popular these days, we often have a lot of questions come in, one of those being what is Single-Cell Vs. Multi-Cell?
During our most recent webinar with our partners at Snom/VTech, Simon Bradbrook was able to walk us through the difference and why it matters. Here’s what he had to say!
Single-Cell means that you have one single base station and the handsets are hanging off one base station. Where it becomes Multi-Cell is when you add another base station, you are creating a mesh network around that so the handsets will operate around that area. Multi-Cell gives you complete coverage for wide areas and it makes sure when you are building that mesh network, a handoff will then be completely seamless.
Here are a couple of options if you are looking for a DECT solution!
Small to Medium-Size Business Solutions: Check out the Snom M5XX solution. This solution can support 1-6 base stations and it increases the size of the area you are able to get them to work within.
Enterprise Business Solutions: Consider the Snom M9XX solution. This model allows from 1-1000 base stations! The M9XX also has a ‘site survey mode’ built right into the handsets so you don’t need additional software or hardware on premise to know where to place your additional base stations! Game changer right there!
