Do you ever wish your cordless phone had that "big office" feature that allowed you to transfer calls to different extensions? Well, Siemens Wireless Terminals' Cordless Communication System (CCS) has brought this big-company option to home offices through advanced handset-to-handset calling. This digital, multiuser cordless telephone supports up to eight cordless handsets, each with its own extension number, for routing calls to an employee or transferring callers to different voice-mail boxes.
CCS consists of a desk station with one cordless phone and charger ($399; $129 for each additional handset). The phone con-tains an integrated digital answering machine that stores up to 26 minutes of messages and supports up to five outgoing messages. Additional features include speakerphone capabilities, handset paging and a backlit LCD display for caller ID; all these features are accessible from either the desk station or a handset.
Like larger telephone systems, CCS also comes with the capability to ensure reliable, secure conversations. It boasts a 2.4 GHz frequency (most high-end models operate at 900 MHz) for better in-building coverage and less static interference. It also has built-in spread-spectrum technology to change the frequency at which the signal is transmitted, increasing security against eavesdroppers and scanners.
