I like the idea of a low power RF local network, but I did not see anything mentioned about encryption or security for the devices. They need to clarify if they are including any hardware encryption capability for a secure local network.

Seems to me that the easiest way to understand what DECT is, what roles it might play in the future, and how it differs from "personal area network" schemes like Bluetooth, is to understand that DECT was designed to be a cellular telephone standard. With all the handover protocols that entails. Its metropolitan area aspirations were challenged by a host of other then-emerging cell telephone systems, but interestingly enough, its in-home use succeeded. I think of it now as being the original version of femtocells. Only these days, because the outdoor macrocells are on different cell standards, the DECT "femtocells" don't allow roaming from your regular cell phone. That aside, they are indeed femtocells.

DECT encryption has long been developed. It is not a strong encryption though. With the data rate, even software encryption can do the work. There is no doubt that DECT is a mature technology. Power consumption is low. However, would the data rate be a stumbling block for the application? What's the range of the automatic power adjustment?

I like that description, "the original version of femtocells." That is a very succinct way to describe DECT.

Now get the smart phone manufactures to put these chips into heir new offerings. My father just had a stroke, and this morning I saw that in Australia they have done a study that stroke patents risk of death during recovery (another stroke, impaired thought that can lead to low blood sugar...) 1) temperature monitoring 2)blood glucose levels 3)ability to swallow (this one not applicable to the idea here anyway, needs to be observed.) Now add a watch with any of the above LAN/PAN (inluding DECT-ULE) choices that can detect 1 temp, 2) glucose through the skin in the back of the watch or in the wrist strap and create an app that alerts the patent to eat get warm, add a function that by default must be acknowledged by patent and condition improves by patent intervention. if no acknowledgment is received cell phone calls 911 by default, can change to doctor, nurses station, care giver, etc. If condition is not changed within short-given time frame 911 or nursing station 911 alert sent out by cell phone. I want to do this so bad now because of the motivation of my fathers stroke, but I can't break into the medical or wireless field HR department stupid keyword search has locked me out...Help!

left out... death during recovery is significantly reduced when 1),2), 3) are monitored

OK so why not add this cabability to the cell phones? Cn this be easily added to a cell phone RF chip or would two chips be needed and the integration?

Can this be used to hand-off phone calls and video-data on cell phones to a in building DECT-ULE to back-haul to free up valuable cell phone frequency bandwidth? If so partner with the cell phone companies in a win-win arraignment. BW is more valuable than gold in some areas right now and will be a mushrooming problem.

This has legs because it leverages cheap, ubiquitous technology with the added layer of ultra-low-power sleep mode. This allows for a lower time to profit for this company because they do not need to subsidize the cost to ramp up volume, or at least not as much.

How about DECT for the last mile connectivity for the mobile networks? Perhaps, an apartment complex, a company's floor can have DECT RF to reach the base station which can talk to the GSM backbone.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
