DECT has been the de-facto standard for residential and business cordless phone communications worldwide since its creation. Operators have globally implemented DECT in their networks. Now, with the astonishing growth and impact of IoT (Internet of Things), ULE technology has been developed as an extension of DECT, hence Voice of IoT.
This offers operators to possibility to transform millions of existing DECT installations in homes and businesses into secure, cost-efficient and versatile Internet of Things gateways for the implementation of smart automation, security and climate control scenarios in residential, healthcare and enterprise environments.
This conference addressed recent business and technology developments in both DECT and ULE globally, and gave more insight in the possibilities for operators, service providers, soft- and hardware manufacturers how they can benefit from both.
Many IoT Applications often involve wearable devices and/or small embedded systems with no touchscreens. In these situations voice control is of paramount importance. ULE is the only IoT standard in which voice is embedded, since ULE is based on DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) which is the de-facto standard for residential and business cordless phone communications worldwide.
