    Only systems I know of, after researching this sort of thing for ourselves, were:

    1. Using a voip phone over wifi, with wifi coverage over the entire site (http://www.voipon.co.uk/hitachi-wire...000-p-263.html)
    2. Using a hybrid phone which uses DECT or Wifi when in range, or standard GSM when out of that range (http://www.voipon.co.uk/hitachi-dmp3...set-p-808.html)
    3. Using a dect phone with dect antennae all over the site. (http://www.voipon.co.uk/siemens-giga...ip-p-1010.html)

    I don't think you'll get a phone which can do long range internal only phone, as the transmit power needed would exceed legal limits. I've given a couple of examples.

    At a place we used to work we had a base station then 2 or 3 handsets that had intependant chargers, we then placed the base station somewhere central ish (secure with a phone point of course) on the site. We got pretty good coverage from it, it's not an ideal solution but it ddn't break the bank . Might not work on a large site though.

    Not sure how it works but when i worked at ASDA while i was at college, they had a cordless phone system that would work anywhere on the shop floor.

    Kind of bigger and bulkier than a normal cordless phone and it was made by BT. Every department had one.

    Sorry for the lack of info just saying that they do exsist lol

    Supermarkets often use Dect repeaters and Managed Wifi across their sites - Motorola/Symbol being one of the main providers for that market.

    @EvLPhenom

    thats similar to what i used befor tho it wasnt a bt handset.

    ---

    voip isnt an option at the moment, hasnt been set up yet, on my todo list for the next few years when the tanoy system starts to fail.

    i think i have a spare dect phone at home somewhere, ill try that and see how far i get, try to rangle a bit of money for a few repeaters maby.

    thanks all
