cordless telephone

  • cordless phone
German: schnurloses Telefon
Japanese: コードレス電話

Communications engineering. A phone that does not have a cord between the handset and the base unit. Cordless phones allow users to roam a short distance (about 50 to 300 m) from the phone's base. Early cordless phones used analogue technology; however, many cordless phones manufactured today employ digital transmission technology (e.g., DECT).
