Now you know what DECT is and what benefits it brings, let’s now turn to how this technology works:

A DECT system always contains two components that constantly communicate with each other. The two components are a base station, also called the fixed part, and at least one handset, or portable part.
The base station forms the bridge between the telephone and Internet connection and the handsets. This can be in the form of a simple DECT base station with or without an answering machine or a DSL router with DECT function.
The handset is the counterpart to the base station. The handset is usually cordless and connects to the base station. However, this mobile part may also be in the form of a headset, mobile phone or smart home sensor.
How a DECT system works
The base station continuously sends a “beacon signal”. This can be received by a handset in the vicinity. The signal provides the handset with the necessary information to allow it to connect and send data via this base station.
If the base station and handset are synchronised, you can make a phone call with this cordless solution. During a phone call, the beacon channel with the best connection will be blocked for other handsets.
