An IP DECT configuration typically consists of Access Points (APs), IP DECT system software, a DMLS open interface for messaging and DECT handsets. Our AP400 APs connect to the IP network and form a DECT system that provides peer to peer IP communication. The connection between AP400s and the host PBX uses either a dedicated IP protocol or a SIP interface. With SIP support (SIP DECT), the IP DECT system can be linked to any certified SIP based host PBX system.
The IP network can be one single converged voice/data network or a dedicated network. An Access Point provides 12 DECT channels and supports up to 11 simultaneous calls. An IP DECT configuration can also support other applications such as voice mail, web-based telephony, central directory, and messaging. A DAP Manager is required for installation, maintenance, subscription, wide area roaming, and messaging.
