First DECT ULE interoperability test: ‘Successful’
AVM, Dialog Semiconductor, DSP Group and RTX demonstrated interoperability on the lower MAC layer between 5 different implementations of DECT ULE.
Today (June 30th 2011), it was announced that AVM, Dialog Semiconductor, DSP Group and RTX had demonstrated interoperability on the lower MAC layer between 5 different implementations of DECT ULE; enabling all participating platforms to communicate with each other. The ultimate goal of these companies is to gain ETSI certification to create a recognized standard for DECT ULE. DECT ULE, or ‘Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications Ultra Low Energy’, to give the technology its full title, is a low-power variant of ‘traditional’ DECT, aimed at developing markets such as building automation, telehealth applications, and smart metering.
Lisa Arrowsmith, Senior Analyst with IMS Research’s Connectivity Group, comments, “DECT ULE is projected to demonstrate its highest uptake within consumer-based applications. Despite being an emerging technology, DECT ULE can benefit from the maturity of ‘traditional’ DECT, in terms of consumer awareness and technical development. DECT has proven its performance and range in residential environments; and many consumers are familiar with the pairing and registration method employed by DECT, due to existing DECT residential telephony systems."
The table below – taken from the report ‘The World Market for Low-Power Wireless Technologies – 2011 Edition,' presents IMS Research’s forecast for the uptake of DECT ULE within certain application areas.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
