A seamless handover and stable roaming experience for business users on the move across large premises

Yealink, a global brand that specialises in video conferencing, voice communication and collaboration solutions, and Far South Networks, a Proudly South African manufacturer of IP PBX and Gateway equipment, announced today that Yealink’s new W80B, DECT IP Multi-Cell System achieves full featured interoperability with the Far South Networks PBX product range.

“DECT-based PBX handsets that supports seamless handover between base stations have generally been beyond the price range of the typical South African SME,” says Grant Broomhall, Managing Director of Far South Networks. “Yealink’s introduction of a cost-effective DECT IP Multi-Cell System is a landmark mobility product for the SMME business.”

Yealink’s new W80B DECT IP Multi-Cell System provides a clear, consistent, high-quality audio experience with seamless mobility across large spaces. The system supports up to 30 base stations, 100 handsets and 100 parallel calls, allowing business users to move freely and converse on their DECT handsets between the base stations.

Completing a new round of product interop testing renews a strong and lasting partnership between Yealink and Far South Networks. The two companies started product interop testing and collaboration in 2011 and continue this commitment to a close product partnership into 2020 and beyond.

Far South Networks has completed the product interoperability testing, with the Yealink DECT IP Multi-Cell System W80B receiving a 100% pass rate for all voice and PBX services to the W53H and W56H handsets, as well as the DECT conference phone, CP930W.

“This combination of products is an exciting value proposition for Far South Networks’ channel partners,” says Grant Broomhall, Managing Director of Far South Networks. “These Yealink models now work seamlessly with our PBX product range as fully managed devices. As a result, our customers have access to all the features and functionality available within their Far South Networks PBX, while enjoying unrestricted mobility across indoor and outdoor spaces.”

Far South Networks’ IP PBX and VoIP Gateway range includes the Wanderbox, Wanderbox Duo, Com.X10 and Com.X20. The Wanderbox product supports up to 100 users offering a complete VOIP and UC&C solution for the small to medium business. The Com.X10 and Com.X20 provide all-in-one voice and data solutions equipped with telecoms and VOIP connectivity for the larger enterprise.

“The completion of the interoperability testing for W80B with Far South Networks PBX products has strengthened our partnership,” said Leo Huang, Yealink VP of Sales. “Yealink is aiming to provide an integrated UC solution to our users. With the compatibility with Far South Networks PBX products, I believe we could better achieve this goal and offer them customer-oriented products and services.”
