The best of both worlds
Peter Härdi (Ascom Wireless Solutions) talks with ETM’s Ali Klaver about the cost savings of IP-DECT solutions for onsite wireless communications.
Peter: "DECT and IP-DECT are very closely related. What they have in common is DECT, a radio standard, a pure standard on what we call the air interface for communication. Let’s say that the legacy and DECT system were connected to each other, or the network was based on classic ISDN technology. IP-DECT is actually using the same radio standard which is a very secure standard that also guarantees a very high quality of speech and play transmission. The big difference to the legacy system is that all the networking is on the IP standard. That means that you can use the common IT network of a company for all the voice and messaging communication. This research also opened up new possibilities with regard to integrating more than one subsidiary into one system. With that I would say we entered into the new world, or more or less the best of both worlds—the secure classical DECT standard for air interface and all the value you get from a well-running IT network."
