DECT 6.0 Phones: Superior Style, Sound & Security
As a leading manufacturer of European cordless phones featuring DECT technology, VTech has leveraged its expertise to develop a stunning DECT 6.0 line-up for North American consumers. Sporting a beautifully thin, compact handset, the rz6031 DECT 6.0 system with caller ID will be the first cordless phone to incorporate the slim form factor currently seen in other electronics, such as portable music players, flat screen TVs and mobile phones. The rz6031 features a vibrant blue backlit keypad and LCD screen for easy viewing and a handset speakerphone for
DECT, which operates on the 1.9 GHz frequency, enhances call clarity and security, and enables users to talk anywhere in the home or office without wireless network interference. Because the frequency is not used by other wireless technologies, DECT technology easily integrates into homes using Internet and Wi-Fi services. VTech’s DECT offerings will be available in an array of affordable configurations, including a bundled two-handset rz6042 system with digital answering device and caller ID.
