Press Release Body =
Many PBX manufacturers today invest a lot in integration of WiFi / GSM telephones within their PBXs. This may be the future of the PBX business, but is it really so? Hybrid WiFi / GSM systems integrated with a PBX have definitely the following advantages: . Company employees can use just one WiFi / GSM combining telephone set regardless of where they go. . An employee is always available regardless of where he or she currently is. . The call cost is almost zero inside the company premises (if you move within the reach of WiFi transceivers). . Some standard PBX extension features are available in the GSM / WiFi handset if the user is within the reach of the company WiFi network or a public GSM network. All the above mentioned features and qualities are enormously important for any company today. I believe that if all of them worked perfectly, these systems would surely kill all DECT business, which forces you to carry two handsets with you all the time. But let\'s have a realistic view. Is everything so positive and effective as shown in many PBX manufacturers\' brochures? Let\'s have a look at the disadvantages that combined WiFi / GSM sets integrated with a PBX may have today: . The hand-over between transceivers is very problematic and inoperative in many cases since the WiFi network is used only. . There does not exist a hand over when moving out of the WiFi coverage to GSM. . There is a poor voice quality when the WiFi part of hybrid WiFi / GSM telephones is used, especially if the company doesn\'t dedicate enough bandwidth to this system.
. There is a high cost of WiFi transceivers and hybrid phones distributed among all employees of the company. The question that inevitably arises is: \"Is there really no solution to this?\" Of course there is! 2N Telekomunikace offers a device called Mobility Extension. The Mobility Extension combines all advantages of DECT systems and hybrid WiFi / GSM phones integrated with PBXs and eliminates the disadvantages following from the use of standard GSM phones.
