In noisy, dusty production environments- factories, chemical plants, mills, etc.- in-building wireless communications can be a convenience, a boost to productivity and, in dire situations, a life-saver. Digital Enhanced Cordless Telephony (DECT) is an ideal wireless solution for these environments because it supports a secure, dedicated, voice-only network in an assigned frequency band. This eliminates or minimizes interference from RFID devices or scanners. DECT also requires a shortened planning cycle when compared with Wi-Fi and is consequently more easily scalable. Avaya DECT 3740 / 3749 Wireless Handsets are specifically designed for rugged production environments. These shock and scratch-proof phones with back-lit keypads, large displays and enhanced liquid and dust protection are designed to enable users to quickly make and receive phone calls (including Caller ID), take advantage of hold, conferencing and messaging and get efficient access to additional Avaya Aura Communication Manager capabilities. The built-in speakerphone, headset compatibility and text messaging simplify communications for workers in widely distributed production locations. Communications takes place over a dedicated, encrypted wireless network. Batteries support up to 18 hours of talk time and up to 150 hours of standby time (10/80 hours on the 3749). The 3749 DECT telephone has an ATEX certification (EMEA and US) so that it can be used in areas where an intrinsically safe device is required (e.g., the chemical industry, mills). Built-in sensor and alarming capabilities make these handsets a good choice for isolated or other high-risk work environments where an employee might be working alone. They can be integrated with building security systems. The DECT standard is widely used in Europe and was approved in the United States in 2006.
