Key facts at a glance:
With your fibre-optic connection you can now make telephone calls over the Internet. Your existing telephone then connects to the Internet Box instead of to the telephone socket. The “Rousseau 300” telephone can be used wirelessly, i.e. without a cable.
With the Internet Box and a land line subscription, or with Vivo-Casa with a land line, you can now make telephone calls over the Internet. The service is called Landline telephony (IP), and is also known as VOIP. This service replaces existing Swisscom land line telephony using copper cables, and means that the Internet Box has to be connected in order to make telephone calls.
Connecting and continuing to use the existing telephone
Your land line telephone no longer connects to the telephone socket in your home, but directly to the Internet Box using the two ports, phone 1 and phone 2.
The Internet Box has an integrated telephone base station, known as a DECT base station. This allows you to connect Swisscom’s “Rousseau 300” telephone wirelessly with the Internet Box. The telephone charger can be connected to any chosen power socket. And a further advantage: from now on you can make HD quality telephone calls.
