Make calls with fixed network telephony (IP)

Make calls with fixed network telephony (IP)

New fixed network telephony


With today's Swisscom landline telephony, your landline telephone is plugged straight into the telephone socket. 

This method is being replaced by modern landline telephony IP (Voice over IP, also known as VOIP).

You now make calls over the internet. Your current telephone is no longer plugged into the telephone socket, but must be connected to the Internet-Box. The Internet-Box must be activated in order to make calls. All Swisscom HD-Phones can be connected wirelessly, that is without cables, to the Internet-Box. 


Connecting the existing landline telephone

Your existing landline telephones and cordless telephones with their own base stations no longer connect with the telephone sockets in your house, but directly to the Internet-Box using the ports phone 1 and phone 2.

 

Please note that the Internet-Box's central telephone book cannot be accessed from these devices.

 

If you are unable to dial with your fixed-line phone, please change to frequency dialling (if possible). Telephones with impulse dialling can no longer be used.


Connecting an HD-Phones to the Internet-Box

The Internet-Box has an integrated telephone base station, known as a DECT base station, which is used to connect all Swisscom HD-Phones wirelessly and at the touch of a button to the Internet-Box. You can plug the telephone's charging station into any power socket. Another advantage: you can make HD quality calls straight away.  

 

In all, you can connect up to 4 handsets to the Internet-Box wirelessly. You can find further information about the DECT base station and the HD telephony here.

When you use an HD-Phone for the first time, the handset display will automatically prompt you to press the + key (pairing key/connection key) on the Internet-Box (base station). This puts the telephone into service within seconds. 

If your HD-Phone has lost the connection to the Internet-Box, when, for example, you replace the router, you can make use the telephone display to establish the connection by following the brief instructions below.
