Information Regarding Cellular Models

When would a Cellular solution be appropriate? It is a good solution when running cabling for landline or VoIP is cost prohibitive. The cellular option is most commonly used with an emergency phone which is using solar power. This allows the emergency phone to be located in remote locations.

The cellular emergency phones are available in the two most common cellular technologies used in North America, GSM and CDMA. GSM is found worldwide as well.

GSM carriers: AT&T and T-Mobile and typically have a SIM card

CDMA carriers: Sprint and Verizon

Key Features:

  • Works with most cellular providers (not Nextel)
  • End user contracts directly with a cellular provider
  • Installed and programmed at the factory
  • GSM & CDMA compatible (select when ordering stations)
