Siemens Gigaset Tip - Mix and Match: Full Interoperability


Many people are still unaware that the Siemens Gigaset range of IP DECT handsets and base station offers full interoperability.

Though some will prefer all the phones to match one and other, just like you may deploy different models of the Snom range dependent upon the needs of each user, the same can be done with the full Siemens Gigaset range.

Register either any combination of up to six handsets or five handsets and one HC450 Door Entry System with one base. The C475 and S685 base stations also have a digital answering machine. This feature is still supported when you register an A58H.

  • A58H: Entry level, 3 line B/W display
  • C47H: 128*128 colour display
  • S68H: Top of the range, 128*160 colour display, bluetooth, wideband audio
