The Cisco IP DECT 6800 Series is made up of the Cisco IP DECT 210 Multi-Cell Base Station, the Cisco IP DECT Phone 6825 Handset, and the Cisco IP DECT Phone 6825 Ruggedized Handset. This system is designed for small and medium businesses, as well as larger organizations.
The handsets communicate with the base station using Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) to provide call functions. The handset needs to be in the range of the base station to work. When the handset is out-of-range of the base station, you get an alert and you need to move within range for call functions.
If you need to use a handset in a volatile, dusty, or damp environment, you can use the Cisco IP DECT Phone 6825 Ruggedized Handset. This handset is IP65-rated, which means that the handset is sealed to protect it from dust and water.
In this document, the term phone means the handset and the term system means the handset and base station.
