Digital Enhanced Cordless Telephony Arrives in U.S.
Siemens Home And Office Communications Devices is planning to deliver an array of cordless phones based on DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telephony) standards.
DECT is a relatively new cordless telephony standard in the United States, but it has been around for more than 10 years in Europe. Unlike Wi-Fi, which operates in unlicensed frequencies in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands, DECT operates in a licensed band (1,920 MHz to 1,930 MHz) free from call quality-damaging interference. Siemens product announcements signal a significant push from this German-based vendor to provide an alterative to Vo-Fi (voice over Wi-Fi)--particularly in the home. The Vo-Fi deployment problems in the enterprise--poor coverage, interference and a short battery life--are nonissues for DECT-based products.
