Yealink W52P combines the convenience of a traditional cordless telephone with the deep network integration, excellent audio quality, and extensive feature-set of a Yealink VoIP phone. And it’s simple to use through your 3CX software IP-PBX platform!
Yealink has partnered with 3CX to provide seamless integration between Yealink phones and the powerful 3CX VoIP platform.
A little clarification. Yealink W52P comprises a base station and a W52H wireless handset. The W52H handset communicates with the base station using the stable, secure DECT protocol. The base station connects to your network using SIP. So it’s the base station that connects directly with 3CX, not the handset.
In this blog, we’re going to run explain how to connect the Yealink W52P base station to 3CX v15, so you get amazing VoIP telephony with your cordless phone.
