New Grandstream DECT Solution Now Available

The new Grandstream DP720 is a DECT cordless VoIP phone that allows users to mobilise their VoIP network throughout any business, warehouse, retail store and residential environment. The DP720’s are supported by Grandstream’s DP750 DECT VoIP base station. Up to five DP720 handsets are supported on each DP750 while each DP720 supports a range of up to 300 meters outdoors and 50 meters indoors from the base station.

This DP750 supports up to 10 SIP accounts and 4 concurrent calls while also offering 3-way voice conferencing, full HD audio and integrated PoE. If the DP750 connects to one SIP trunk and has multiple DECT phones connected, the DP750 can be configured to create a ring group to ring all, ring in sequential order, ring in circular mode (sequential starting from the phone next to the one that answered last) or shared mode (they all share the same line similar to analogue phone connections).

The base station does not include a handset, you have to buy at least one DP720 handset for each DP750 base station. We are offering our reseller partners a special deal with our first shipment of DP720’s and DP750’s, which is priced at 20% off normal dealer pricing – limited to one unit of each per reseller. The DP720 retails for $101 ex GST, the DP750 Base Station at $107 ex GST. Please mention “launch special” when you order.
