NEC-DECT-i766

NEC has announced market availability of the new (IP) DECT handset I766 that enables care free wireless communications in demanding environments. With strong focus on vertical markets like industry, healthcare and hospitality, this handset meets the most stringent requirements for advanced mobility and messaging.

Usability, ruggedness and application integration have been high on NEC’s agenda when designing the I766, resulting in the handset’s highly intuitive interface and powerful functionality. The I766 succeeds the I755 handset which has been one of the cornerstones of NEC’s Business Mobility portfolio for many years.

NEC has managed to combine robustness and resistance to shocks, dust and water (IP65 classification), with an attractive design and intuitive user interface. The 2.4” high resolution display and HD-Voice speakerphone of the I766 adds to the handset’s appeal.

The I766 gives users full control over their accessibility, with many call control features seamlessly integrated with the company PBX. The extensive messaging and alarming features provide the required interaction with messaging servers and nurse call systems via the open interface DLMS. The central directory application provides valuable company telephone directory and presence information.

The I766’s integrated Bluetooth headset interface provides full freedom and flexibility. The dual antennas included in the set allow for antenna diversity, adding to stable and secure communications even in very demanding RF environments.

The large SOS-alarm button, the pull cord and man-down features of the I766 provide the means to immediately alert other staff under difficult circumstances, such as in case of duress. Real Time Location services can be provided by means of DECT signal strength (RSSI) or by detecting beacons with the optional DLA (DECT Locator Accessory) module, which highly contributes to enhancing safety scenarios. The location information can be added to the various alarms for pinpointing a person’s location while in need of help.

The I766 interworks with all current NEC IP DECT and DECT systems and is available through NEC channels across all markets served.
