How many wireless headsets can be used in a given area/office?

So as to know the upper most figures of wireless headsets, which can be connected in the office, there are quite a few factors that you would have to consider: Headset Express would like to know first the following:
·  Number of headset users for wireless connections that work simultaneously.
·  Design & layout of the office.
·  The kind of technology for wireless headset to be applied (DECT 6.0 or Bluetooth).

DECT 6.0 & Bluetooth both these apply entirely diverse working frequencies plus none shall cause interference to one another.

There happen to be a lot of interconnected things that come into play while influencing wireless headsets numbers deployment in general so to get to a conclusive number is highly difficult.

Plantronics for this reason advises a survey of the place that interests customers to place in excess of seventy wireless headsets. You could get in touch with Plantronics engineering if you would require in excess of seventy headsets functional in 1 office.

In usual cases 70 Plantronics wireless headsets could be set up without troubles. In general offices, supposing the phone is vacant for periods in excess of 30-40% of the usage time then 120 could also be the set up. If the environment is conducive then more set ups could be added but a survey is the only way to reach a possible recommendations.

Wireless headsets DECT brand from Plantronics (example CS55) have been quoted 70 'channels'.

DECT's other products estimate 120 feeds. Actually, each one has more than 120, but due to various reasons, somewhere near seventy could be guaranteed. This goes for a large number of DECT systems.

Whenever there are synchronized calls it needs separate feeds and the upper limit is seventy synchronized users. So this is what Plantronics mostly quote, as there are few chances of troubles in users under this figure. Actually the figure for usable products is much more, the customers of Plantronics claim to have set up near to five hundred such headsets.
The important feature of DECT is safeguard frequency-band. Meaning it isn't influenced by other radio inference when receiving signals, like Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Thus in comparison with Bluetooth, there is possibility to set up extra DECT wireless systems.

1: Users of wireless headsets CONCURENT number.
The upper most users of simultaneous wireless headset in selected region (we'll get back here later) are seventy, based upon available channel numbers. Surely, in a normal office, not all use the phone throughout. Thus if the call consumption is fifty percent, the user numbers nearly doubles.

With the same calculations if usage is merely twenty percent then 350 users can be there. But is not just that easy. Every one of the wireless headsets (irrespective of its usage) will consume some section of existing feeds. Thus bigger wireless headset numbers means less feeds available for use.
Yet the effect taken into consideration offers a hundred twenty headsets.

2: Design & layout of the building

All offices are dissimilar in design & plan. Some have sections while some offices with office, walls and meeting rooms, plus sales, HR and finance too are divided. All these create physical obstructions for the wireless signals, but do not stop the signals. These obstructions are what have an effect on the density.

Supposing the area is devoid of such obstructions then there can be seventy users having complete utilization. Or even a hundred twenty if fifty percent call utilization take place.

Factors like material used, layout and other things could have a huge saying on the level of penetration wireless signals have. Concrete walls grant more blockages as against a window.

Numerous offices usually are a single office area, but could have various sections. Then the section 1 guidance is applicable. With bigger places the number of sections could increase which needs more set ups of wireless headsets. If there are three well-distributed sections & 30-40% call consumption taking place, the requirement for wireless headsets rises to 120 X 3 = 360.

The customers of Plantronics have set up these wireless headsets in such numbers and even more on singular sites. A survey permits better interference among to be assessed areas, allowing for particular suggestions to be sort.

For wireless Bluetooth headsets usage, normal guide says there could be generally eight coexisting users (live calls) in a fifteen-meter by twenty-meter office. Every time the region doubles, upper limit for live calls can be Z * 1.5.
E.G. - fifteen-meter by twenty-meter office = eight live calls
Area increase by 2 folds: thirty-meter x twenty-meter office = twelve live calls (equal to eight * 1½)
Area two times again: thirty-meter x forty-meter office = eighteen live calls (equal twelve  *1½)
More user too could be there (all users of wireless headset won't usually be operating all at once.)

WiFi & Bluetooth (wireless Internet)

AFH (Adaptive Frequency Hopping) technology is used to lessen intrusion from 802.11 WiFi systems in Plantronics 510S voyager wireless headset. For this system to work properly just 1 or 2 802.11 ground stations (point of access) should be used in one another's vicinity, but be prepared for small bursts of intrusion. Supposing there happen to be in excess of 2 WiFi points of access working close to each other the complete working of Plantronics 510 could be faced with intrusion.
