Indeed. The other solutions work great for a single user on a cellular
phone, but I prefer a plain old wired telephone with a handset for the
emergency phone at a data center. It's usable by anyone. Ever try
handing your bluetooth headset with custom earmold to the electrician
working on the UPS?
Data centers tend to be noisy in more than just the acoustic spectrum,
mobile reception often isn't the greatest.
