The Best Long Range Wireless Phone Money Can Buy

The EnGenius Durafon PSL Cordless Phone is Rugged – and Can Work for Miles!

EnGenius produced the first industrial long range cordless phone. This latest version, the DuraFon PSL (PRO Single Line), is the first rugged industrial long range wireless phone.

The EnGenius Durafon PSL

The EnGenius Durafon PSL is an industrial long range cordless telephone. It has a range of up to 5 miles (8 km) in open terrain. It can also reach up to 12 floors of penetration in office buildings.

In warehouse environments, you can have up to 250,000 square feet of coverage. Outdoors on farms, ranches, car lots or college campuses, coverage is up to 3,000 acres.

In addition to being a cordless telephone, the EnGenius DuraFon is also a full-duplex 2-way radio which operates independent of the base unit.

This system will grow with your business, allowing you to add up to 9 handsets per base unit. You can expand the system up to 4 lines (4 base units are needed) and 36 handsets in total.

The DuraFon PSL works off any analog line and is also easy to add to your digital PBX with the EnGenius digital adapter (optional). Alternatively we also offer the EnGenius PRO 4-line long range wireless phone.

EnGenius DuraWalkie

Another option is to add “Walkie Talkie” style handsets to the Durafon PSL system. The DuraWalkie PRO/PSL allows users of the DuraFon PSL wireless phone system a choice in handsets. Not every employee requires access to dial tone. The DuraWalkie PRO allows specific employees to always be in touch yet do not have the ability to make an outgoing telephone call.

EnGenius Durafon SIP

There is even a SIP based Durafon. If your company requires reliable, long-range communications over large areas or in harsh environments and have an existing IP-PBX system or use hosted VoIP services, the DuraFon-SIP is your ideal choice.

The DuraFon-SIP long range phones can reach areas where Wi-Fi and DECT can’t access.

Whatever your needs are when it comes to a long range wireless / cordless phone option, Telephone Magic Inc. has been an Elite EnGenius Dealer for the past 20+ years.

Avaya D100 Wireless Phone System

Avaya had a wildly popular wireless phone known as the 3810. It was so popular that we still get a lot of inquiries for it. The Avaya 3810 was discontinued in 2011 but thanks to the internet, it’s possible to search for anything.

Avaya D100 wireless phone systemTo answer the need, Avaya introduced the D100 SIP DECT wireless phone system. It is a really slick system that can be managed via the IP Office Manager without any additional configuration needed. The range of the base station is between 100~350 feet indoors and up to 700 feet in the open. We all know there are many factors that work to decrease wireless signal strength, so Avaya addressed this through repeaters that can be added to the system, each with its own 100~350 feet coverage range. You can add up to 6 repeaters on the system to get more coverage. The repeaters don’t require any additional wiring – just a plug – so it’s a really nice solution.

Each base station can connect with up to 8 Avaya D160 handsets, and you can connect up to four base stations per IP Office installation. Since the system is integrated with IP Office, the handsets support IP Office features like Busy Lamp Field (BLF), Message Waiting Indicator (MWI), hot desking, emergency calls, programmable buttons and more.

The D160 handset offers a handsfree mode, and you can also use a corded headset like the Plantronics MX500C which plugs into the headset jack. Unfortunately there’s no Bluetooth option but all in all, the handset’s a solid performer.

For many companies using IP Office, the D100 system is what we recommend for their wireless solution. It’s a plug-and-play solution that provides lots of flexibility and features.

Cisco On the Go

The past couple of posts have been talking about Cisco’s desktop IP phones, so I thought I’d take a moment to talk about their mobile IP phone offerings.

There are three Cisco wireless IP phones available at this time: the 7925G, 7925G-EX and 7926G. Each of them is built to last, having at least an IP54 rating for dust resistance and splashing water resistance. The cases are hermetically sealed and the phones comply with military 810F standard against drops and shocks.

Cisco 7925G-EX Wireless IP PhoneAll three phones connect to the Cisco phone system over the WiFi network, so your range is only limited by the range of your company WiFi network. This is a great feature and will come in handy for those working in facilities where WiFi coverage is ubiquitous. It’s also good for those who are teleworkers at home offices.

The phones also have Bluetooth 2.0 so you can attach a wireless Bluetooth headset and work hands-free. A 2.5mm headset jack is also available so you can use a corded headset if you prefer.

Added Ruggedness & Resiliency

For those working in the oil and chemical industries, or in other potentially explosive environments, Cisco’s 7925G-EX model (pictured right) is probably your best choice. In addition to all the other features, the 7925G-EX has Atmospheres Explosibles (ATEX) Zone 2/Class 22 and Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Class I Division II certifications.

Cisco’s 7926G wireless IP phone has an additional feature: a built-in 2D bar code scanner. Great for workers in warehouses and anywhere bar code scanning is needed.

All in all, if you’re on a Cisco phone system and are looking for more freedom from your desktop, consider the Cisco 7900 wireless IP phones. They’re packed with features and will keep you on the move.

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.

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.
