Advantages of DECT – Poly Savi 8245 UC Wireless DECT Headset

You may see “DECT” thrown around when it comes to headsets, but what does this really mean?

This acronym stands for “Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications.” It may also be interchanged with “Digital European Cordless Telecommunications,” as it originated in Europe. The US utilizes its own standard called DECT 6.0.

DECT headsets use their own wireless technology and operate on their own frequencies. The fact that the signal is constantly changing makes DECT headsets very appealing for secure environments such as banks and government. The top-of-the-line security standard of DECT drastically reduces the risk of eavesdropping, interference and hacking.

Headsets featuring DECT have a charging base that uses AC power to charge the headset. The headset connects to a desk phone, computer or mobile phone from the base station. This set up is suited for workers in an office or call center rather than on-the-go.

Poly’s Savi 8245 DECT 6.0 headset has a wireless line-of-sight range of 450 feet and 130 feet in a typical office environment, so you’re not tied to your desk all day. This model features an extra battery providing unlimited talk time. Can’t commit to one wearing style? The Savi 8245 has three: mono, stereo and convertible.
