Not all businesses fit in nice, neat little packages. Some sprawl out over ranch houses or campuses. If you need room to roam, check out the EnGenius SN-900 Ultra, which boasts the most extensive range of any cordless phone. Unlike 900MHz phones, EnGenius Technologies' 630-milliwatt cordless can operate in 2,000 acres of open space or within 150,000 square feet (and 11 stories) indoors. It also includes a handset-to-handset two-way radio that doesn't require access to the base unit. There's military-style frequency-hopping security, and you can expand to support four phone lines and 36 handsets. Your price, fully loaded: $299.
