EnGenius Technologies Adds Stylish Office Handset to Industry-Leading Business-Class DuraFon Cordless Phone System

EnGenius® Technologies, Inc., the leader in Premise Mobility Communications systems for homes and businesses, today announced the launch of the DuraFon-OHC, a stylish, long-range, office-style cordless phone and two-way radio handset that works with the industry-leading DuraFon PRO Long-Range Multi-Line Expandable Cordless Phone System and DuraFon 1X Single Line System.

Ideal for expansive properties such as hotels and resorts, schools, retail locations, and administrative offices, the DuraFon-OHC works with the DuraFon PRO and DuraFon 1X systems giving users signal range that vastly exceeds DECT technology and WiFi phones. The addition of the new office-style DuraFon-OHC handset to the existing family of durable DuraFon handsets and DuraWalkies makes the DuraFon system an ideal long-range communications solution for office environments and harsh environments alike, increasing productivity, improving efficiencies and reducing OPEX.

“The ability to have the industrial-style handset for the warehouse and a nicer handset for the office is great,” stated Hugh Vujnovich, President at Clearcom Networks, an EnGenius distributor. “Offering a new sleek handset that is compatible with existing DuraFon base units is a great idea.”

Key features of the DuraFon-OHC Handset:

  • Extreme Range: Signal range vastly exceeds DECT and WiFi phones with range up to 12 floors in office settings, 250,000 square feet in retail environments.
  • Speakerphone: Hands-free communications enable employees to multi-task.
  • 2-Way Radio: Features a full-duplex, two-way communication intercom mode.
  • LCD Display: Four-line illuminated LCD displays information that is easy to read in bright or low-light conditions in any office environment.
  • Caller ID: Gives users the ability to screen calls and stay on task.

“Our EnGenius DuraFon PRO and 1X systems have become the go-to business-class cordless communications systems for use in harsh, industrial environments due to a unique combination of extreme range and rugged design,” explained Alex Wei, product manager at EnGenius. “The new handset brings style and DuraFon functionality to the desktop to enable businesses to take advantage of the range and reliability to enable users to move throughout and beyond the premises without having to worry about missing a call.”
