Rocom Launch New IP DECT Handset Range

NEC has launched a new range of IP DECT handsets and messaging devices for the Univerge SV8100 and other telephone systems, which are available from Rocom. The range comprises four DECT handsets and the new M155 personal messenger – all designed to streamline workplace communication in a variety of environments.

The M155 personal messenger is a watch-sized device, particularly suited to healthcare and hospitality environments where a user is constantly on the move but needs to be easily contacted. The unit can be worn either around the wrist or the neck and features an LCD display for text messages and a two-way speakerphone. It can also integrate with common healthcare (Nurse Call) and hotel applications.

The four DECT handsets are led by the feature-rich I755 which is suitable for a wide range of challenging environments such as warehousing, manufacturing, retail and other industrial environments. The unit features a dust and drip-proof IP54 casing, Bluetooth headset connectivity, access to a corporate directory, location detection and full messaging compatibility. The I755 also possesses a “man-down” alarm that will sound if the unit is ever quickly knocked into a non-vertical position – ideal for security guards and other workers who could be easily stranded.

The NEC IP DECT range also includes the competitively priced C124 entry level DECT handset, the colour screen G355 professional handset and the advanced G955 handset for mobile office users.

Andy Clark, NEC Business Unit Manager at Rocom commented: “The new range builds on the SV8100’s excellent mobility capabilities and gives resellers a great solution to offer to end users. We expect to see high growth in this area over the coming months, especially with unique features on offer with the M155 messenger.”
