Good question. This story was written two years ago. I think we ought to go back to Dialog to find out how things are going...

That's fine, DECT is mature and well tested.
However it is also known as easily hackable. Considering it's something that could be used everywhere at home, I wonder if it's that smart to use such a weak solution (from the privacy point of view)...

zigbee is too complicated, not IP friendly, and their 'profiles' can not co-exist(one device can only be either for home-automation, or metering, etc), etc. it has great marketing skills, but the tech side is lacking a lot.even z-wave is much better.

Native support for IP address; support for "voice"; the integration of DECT ULE capabilities in Internet access devices (like cable or DSL modems); etc.

Reuse an already mature technology provides a leading position in stability and, hopefully, cost. However, what's the other advantage of DECT ULE over Zigbee which is intended for home automation?

When it refers to audio and telphony, DECT has proved to beat Bluetooth, but at the moment, I think reduced levels in power consumption require not only the use of an adequate protocol and short ranges (300m isn´t short for me) but also the semiconductor making experience and knowledge. Few companies out there posses such combination. However, I do see that DECT is a strong contender when talking about not so short ranges. Would like to see the current consumption numbers though.

Indusrtial Automation and Healthcare automation is in need of this type of technology. If Dialog works with OE to provide innovative value added solution, they will be very successful. I will await new industrial product range with DECT ULE.

Frank, I agree. This is really an interesting strategy on the part of Dialog. I am not certain how many others will follow to build momentum behind this...but this definitely feels like a plan worth trying.

An interesting and bold strategy, to do something completely different -- clever re-use of a mature standard for a completely different application than it was designed for -- rather than become just another me-too in ZigBee, BT or whatever. I wish them the best of luck in getting this off the ground.
