CAT-iq HD Voice

CAT-iq is a key voice and networking technology in home gateways. CAT-iq stands for Cordless Advanced Technology - internet and quality.

CAT-iq integrates the base station into the home gateway, giving it native IP connectivity. 
CAT-iq 2.0 enables customers to make end-to-end VoIP calls with all the extras: wideband HD voice quality, multiple lines and synchronized phone books.

Certified CAT-iq 2.0 handsets from different system vendors can be used on the same certified base station. They are interoperable with other CAT-iq handsets and gateways as well as being backward compatible to DECT GAP products. 

CAT-iq 2.0 certified devices will be able to benefit from the use of the HD Voice logo of the GSMA (GSM Association).

The GSMA license program, through its technical annex, will refer to CAT-iq 2.0 specifications as minimum requirements for fixed HD devices, and the GSMA license agreement will be made available to FULL DECT Forum members, who have CAT-iq 2.0 certified products.
