Install the base station in a location that provides the least amount of interference. See Site planning. Before you install a base station, you must understand the usage scenarios so that you can determine whether or not the environment is acceptable. Bear in mind the following:
Signal direction: The signal from a base station does not propagate evenly in all directions. The signal typically propagates strongest in the horizontal plane. However, the base station might be able to serve callers on other floors. You can then provide coverage to areas not frequently used and so not meriting a dedicated local base station.
Other radio signals: Receiving normal broadcast radio signals in an area is not an indication that the base station will receive DECT signaling.
You can install the base station simply by plugging in the required connectors but you must first determine the coverage area. Prior to installing the device, you can deploy various surveys to detect the number of available channels in the environment as well as any pre-installed base stations.
