Yealink DECT IP Base Station W60B Review
The Yealink W60B is the default DECT IP base station setup designed for optimal use with small and medium-sized enterprises. As a leading communications and data hub for a business’ telecommunications system, a base station is the main point for connecting the interoperability of multiple wireless handsets and other communication devices.
In other words, it is the base station that acts as the central communications point for multiple workers to communicate with each other while wearing their wireless handsets. The Yealink W60B allows for enhanced mobility and interoperability for workers, supervisors, and business executives to conduct work with more freedom of movement.
And most importantly, the Yealink W60B base station allows businesses and executives to function more optimally without the need of amassing hundreds of feet of wiring, multiple charges, or worrying about multiple connecting ports. Numerous connection ports can cause workplace confusion.
And unending cobwebs of wires and handset wires laying about can ultimately become safety hazards without proper upkeep.
The Yealink W60B base station is designed to offer your business maximum flexibility and mobility in a workplace setting. The Yealink W60B has the technical capabilities to connect up to eight Yealink W56H DECT wireless handsets. And along with these features, the Yealink W60B contains a powerful computer chip that always ensures optimum performances whenever it is used.
The advanced technological features of the Yealink W60B base station allow it to support up to eight VoIP accounts or up to eight concurrent calls. And all of these enhanced base stations features mean faster startup operation, improved signal connections, and overall reductions in operational downtime and maintenance upgrades.
We believe that the Yealink W60B base station should be part of your business communications system. Suppose your business is call center-based, operator-based, or requires multiple workers to coordinate on simultaneous projects with more freedom of space. In that case, we recommend the Yealink W60B for your business needs.
But we feel that it is not just enough to recommend the Yealink W60B base station for your business needs without further explaining its best functions. But not all communication devices are made alike, so let’s explore a brief explanation of the base station technology and why your business needs it to free your workers from being literally tied to the desk all of the time.

What is a Base Station in Digital Communications?
A base station is a kind of fixed transceiver system that acts as the central communication hub for a single or several mobile and wireless communications devices. The base station, relative to wireless data communication devices in the business world, is a digital device that acts as a central connection hub for multiple wireless devices to communicate with each other.
A base station is a network that connects an electronic device, like a wireless handset or smart device, to other devices or networks via a fiber optic connection or a dedicated high bandwidth wire. The base station is basically an electronic transceiver system that is capable of receiving and sending wireless signals.
Look at it this way; a base station is an electronic signal point that similarly connects other devices and networks to a hub and spoke network. For one network of devices to communicate with one another, they would do so directly through the base station via routing all signal traffic through the base station to transmit to one or more connected devices.
A base station has to transmit and receive wireless signals – otherwise, it would technically only be a transmitter or receiver.
To further simplify the idea, let’s examine cell phone networks. A cell phone tower is also technically a base station. Every cell phone or smart device in a given range electronically connects to a local base station cell tower. And that local base station cell tower can connect cell phones networks, the wired payphone and landline system, and even the internet.
Do you have a satellite dish on your roof? Well, your satellite dish, vehicle’s satellite dish antenna, and even much larger scientific radio satellite dishes are base station networks for large satellites orbiting high above the earth.
OK, now that we have a baseline understanding of the base station concept, let’s talk about the Yealink W60P.
The Yealink W60B
The Yealink W60B is an upgrade and improvement on its predecessor model, the W56B base station. And while the Yealink W56B base station is a fine network system, it is limited by its call and network capacity. The Yealink W56B base station can handle five supporting handsets and could only field up to four calls simultaneously.
The Yealink W60B base station and signal networking system are more suitable for larger or expanding enterprises. And it is a great system for companies that wants to increase productivity. Over 94% of businesses claim that conference calls increase productivity in their workplaces.
The Yealink W60B is a base station for WiFi signals that can support up to eight Yealink W56H DECT wireless handsets and eight simultaneous calls. Keep in mind that this means that each Yealink W56H DECT wireless handset can field two simultaneous calls each.
Each Yealink W56H DECT wireless handset has operational talk times of over 30 hours and over 400 hours of standby status time. And each handset also has a 2.4” LCD color display with a 240 x 320-pixel ratio.
The Yealink W60B has a DECT radio coverage distance of up to fifty meters, or about 165 feet indoors and up to 300 meters, or 984 feet, outdoors.
You don’t need to purchase any separate power supplies for the W60B or the W56H handsets. This system can be entirely supported by Power over Ethernet if desired. The W56H handsets come with charging docks that can be powered via a USB port.
The W56H handset phone menus are user-friendly compared to DECT phones sold by competitor brands. And it is intuitively easy to transfer calls, conference multiple callers, or put a call on hold.
