Uniden Cordless Phone Extends Antenna Range

  • Sends out multiple signals to eliminate drop out
  • Compatible with long range repeater
  • 10 models to choose from

Determined to demonstrate that the XDECT 80xx cordless phone has the ability to send and receive calls over a long range, Uniden conducted a test in June by setting up a conference call with one caller stationed on the top level of the iconic Eureka Sky Tower, Melbourne, and another caller at street level – a distance of 91 storeys.

A second test successfully completed a distance of 698 metres, from the top of the skyscraper to Melbourne’s Flinders St Station. 

Uniden’s diversity and high gain antenna system is said to be the reason the cordless phone’s range is extended. This technology effectively eliminates drop out areas by sending out multiple signals and bouncing them off the strongest wireless paths to provide maximum coverage. In comparison, traditional cordless phone systems transmit the one signal only. To extend phone coverage to longer distances, the XDECT 80xx Series is compatible with a separate long range repeater.

The XDECT 80xx Series comprises of 10 new models, including answering machine and non-answering machine phones as well as a waterproof and dustproof range.

The new phones are equipped with a range of features such as repeater station compatibility, headset jack and belt clip. It is wifi network friendly, which means it won’t interfere with household gadgets, and multi handset capabilities allows users to expand the phone system to up to 12 handsets.
