North Jutland based RTX Telecom and the Netherlands' SiTek have jointly developed a Ultra Low Power (ULP) technology that can reduce battery consumption in DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) based networks by a factor of 40, reports professional journal Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
 
The aim of the development programme is to achieve a significant reduction in power consumption in order to extend battery life for devices such as cordless phones, wireless door bells, fire and smoke detectors, remote monitoring devices and sensor networks.
 
The ULP solution has been developed specifically for DECT and its next generation CAT-iq. RTX Telecom's technical manager Peter Mariager told Ingeniøren that ULP can be incorporated into existing DECT/CAT-iq networks and provide "new opportunities in relation to connecting DECT units to the internet".
 
Although the technology is tested and ready for production, it will take some time before it reaches end users. "We have the technology in place, but there needs to be a base of CAT-iq products before it pays," says Mariager.
 
This base could emerge when CAT-iq are built into conventional Wi-Fi routers, a process that currently is ongoing.
