NR+NR+

The DECT Forum is pleased to announce NR+ an entirely new wireless technology emerging from the DECT lineage that started almost 30 years ago. This new radio is not an adaptation of DECT, but a completely new OFDM-based RF technology standard aimed squarely at serving the needs of non-cellular professional stand-alone wireless networks. It heralds the chance at last, for private businesses or ventures to deliver the widest range of local voice, data and IoT services – with one technology!

Recently approved by ITU-R WP5D as an IMT 2020 technology, it is the world’s first non-cellular 5G technology standard. As with the original DECT, the standard (itself called ‘DECT-2020 NR’) was developed by ETSI bringing together industry experts in pro-audio, IoT and RF technology with the support of the DECT Forum membership.

Although a completely new technology, NR+ will share the regulations associated with DECT, allowing NR+ to co-exist with DECT in the license-free 1.9 GHz band that is available in most parts of the world. It also builds on the well-proven advantages of DECT that have made the technology a favourite of developers of networked voice & data systems that require very high reliability and outstanding quality of service.

NR+ is not targeted to replace DECT but will be a technology bringing new capabilities, such as Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC) and Massive IoT or Massive Machine Communication (mMTC). NR+ will open up unprecedented opportunities for professional service providers, and will help meet some of big challenges facing innovators as we approach the mid-21st century.
