EnGenius DuraFon SIP Long Range Cordless for IP-PBX Systems

EnGenius DuraFon SIP Long Range Cordless Phone SystemIf you’ve been looking for a long range cordless phone that will work with your IP-based PBX, look no further than the EnGenius DuraFon SIP system.

EnGenius is one of the most trusted names in the North American long range cordless phone market. Their DuraFon multi-line long range cordless phone system has been satisfying customers for years. Now, you can add the DuraFon-SIP long range cordless phone to your existing IP-PBX system.

It’s a pretty cool system, supporting up to four concurrent conversations (either 4 SIP calls or 3 SIP calls + 1 PSTN) and a range of up to 12 floors in-building coverage, up to 250,000 sq. ft. in warehouse settings or up to 3000 sq. acres in open range settings.

The DuraFon-SIP system supports up to 10 long range cordless handsets, each of which feature 2-Way Intercom and Broadcast features. More than one DuraFon-SIP base station can be added to your IP-PBX, but there are some limitations on phone conversations between handsets registered to different base stations. Most notably, the 2-Way Intercom and Push-to-Talk features won’t work, but you can still make handset to handset calls by using PBX extension-to-extension calls.

If you have questions about the DuraFon-SIP, check out our extensive DuraFon-SIP FAQ section or call one of our sales reps at 1-855-929-9199 and they’ll be happy to find the answers to your questions.

Best Long Range Wireless Phone We Have Ever Seen

When you need a cordless phone that has a longer range for a large property there are a lot of expensive solutions that require an inordinate number of repeaters to pass off the signal from various zones. Car lots and multi-floor offices are good examples of where this type of wireless phone is required. 
For more than a dozen years, Telephone Magic has offered the BEST and LEAST EXPENSIVE long range wireless phone solution that will cover most of these applications with an all-inclusive cordless phone with charger and an independent antenna base that can be mounted in an ideal coverage location.

DuraFon 1X Features:

EnGenius DuraFon 1X handset

  • Complete mobile communications: Using EnGenius, you can answer a call away from your desk. Is it for someone else? Just transfer the call to the proper extension. Or you can put the call on hold, and radio your colleague to let him/her know who’s on the line—from your cordless handset.
  • Full duplex 2 way radio: Unlike the usual take turns conversations typical of radio or CB communication, the EnGenius 2 way radio works in full duplex mode. That means you can talk comfortably and naturally with a co-worker. And you can talk privately so you don’t have to worry about broadcasting your conversation to the entire warehouse.
  • Exceptional Security: Digital spread spectrum technology broadcasts your conversation on up to 200 channels each second, preventing eavesdropping.

  • Optional external antenna: Extend your coverage. Use the optionalexternal antenna and take your conversations outdoors and around your worksite.

Every business site is different and in larger areas an external roof antenna can be added to extend the already impressive range of the EnGenius DuraFon 1X. You can easily connect this long range wireless phone to your business phone system via a single line analog port, which allows the DuraFon to be integrated as an extension of your telephone platform. There is also a multi-line version of the DuraFon, the DuraFon Pro, which allows up to 4 telephone lines to be handled by the system. Either way, we highly recommend the DuraFon for your long range cordless requirements as the BEST solution on the market today. As your EnGenius Elite Dealer, you know you are buying from a trusted source, which ensures you receive factory-direct warranty service for your DuraFon purchase.

Cordless Phone System – Long Range, 4-Lines, Wireless!

DuraFon Pro 4-line long range wireless phone system complete with 4 DuraFon Pro handsetsThe EnGenius DuraFon PRO is the evolution of first the 4-line EP-490 and then the DuraFon 4X industrial long range cordless phone systems. It has the longest range of any 4-line cordless phone system in North America, and covers up to 12 storiesin buildings, 250,000 sq feet in a warehouse and 3000 acres in outdoor applications.
The new DuraFon PRO handsets are our most durable yet, and while you can start with as few as 1-4 lines you can expand to that to as many as 32 port/lines by simply adding additional DuraFon PRO-BU bases. Users have a choice in portable handsets between the full functionality of the DuraFon PRO handset, or the optional DuraWalkie handset for those that only require a 2-way radio for internal communications.
Upgrades include a new Lithium Ion Battery, providing 6 hours talk and 50 hours standby time – double the previous models. The voice quality is now louder and clearer than before. The handset features an extra loud ringer and an integrated headset jack. The battery is securetly enclosed in the phone compartment which is now more durable than ever without requiring an extra rugged case.
Please note: The DuraFon PRO handsets will NOT work with your existing DuraFon 4X and EP 490 system. Also, if you have a DuraFon 4X system and need a base replacement once existing stock is no longer available, at an additional modest cost we canl supply a modified DuraFon Pro base station to replace your defective unit, thus maintaining the longevity of your existing DuraFon 4X system.
