The DECT Access Profiles

  • Peter Olanders


The core concept of DECT has been to replace, or extend, the last pieces of telephone wire, between the user and the networks, with radio — “no strings attached”. Thus, DECT is an access technology, with the DECT standards focused on the radio interface and extending beyond this only when necessary to achieve the required functionality. This means that DECT has been specified with no particular background network of its own, in contrast to, for example, some cellular telephone systems (e.g. GSM) — this is a fundamental difference between DECT and such systems.
