DECT and ULE are all around us, delivering services we rely on every day. These characteristics are also driving a safer,

more reliable Internet of Things. Here are a few other facts that may interest you about DECT:
: DECT is found in around 100 million European home gateway and almost 50 million new residential systems are sold each year. Since the
migration of the DECT base station into the broadband home gateway, both HD
Voice and Ultra Low Energy battery powered sensor networks are supported by one
and the same radio. Indeed, DECT and ULE now feature in many voice activated
the cord not only applies to telephony. DECT and ULE are key wireless components
in demanding environments, such as Blue Light emergency services, Industrial,
Smart City, Smart Home and Building, Healthcare, programme making and special events (Broadcasting).
High density environments
such as warehouses may also rely on the self-configuration capabilities
of DECT and ULE to efficiently and reliably control up to 1,000 clients per base
station. In tomorrow’s smart cities even the rat population
and the potential for the spread of harmful diseases can be controlled by ULE .
DECT for professional environments
: DECT is also present call centres, schools,
hospitals and campuses that use wireless headsets, microphones and corporate
conferencing systems. No other technology can support such a high density of
live users without drop-outs or interference.
DECT’s intelligent dynamic channel allocation ensures that every connection is the best connection available, essential
for emergency Blue Light services and for a multitude of outdoor applications.
requirements like ultra-low latency (<1ms) and high reliability, there are
many new potential vertical markets for DECT and ULE with more emphasis placed
on speed of reaction and precision.
: Wireless microphones with extremely low latency, wireless
speakers with long range, even Assistive Listening Systems are all part of the
current and future diversity of DECT.
