History of the cordless telephone
This is a communications device that works (almost) in the same way as a corded telephone, with the only difference that it is not connected to the telephone box via a twisted wire.

These digital devices broadcast on a frequency range between 1,880 and 1,920 MHz. Towards the end of 2008, a new generation appeared: the DECT Eco cordless telephone. Compatible with boxes, this device benefits from reduced electrical power and intensity of radio exchanges.
