DSP Group investing in DECT based VoIP
- DSP Group is one of very few companies out there that is promoting an alternative to VoIP-over-WiFi. It has significantly enhanced its processor to handle advanced VoIP functionalities. DSP Group DECT VoIP processor will, for instance, enable D-Link to develop features including PBX function, use of Cordless HS for reception, issue VoIP calls, having Wideband audio calls, having data over the cordless etc.
DECT is up against VoIP—over-WiFi in the residential market. However DECT admittedly provides better quality, longer stand-by, longer talk time and much better range than WiFi.
There are a few new applications where DECT is / will be integrated over the coming year. These include IAD (integration of DSLx with Home routing), eMTA, Infotainment Tablets/Handsets. These new applications will boost again the growth of DECT, which had otherwise seen a steady decline in Europe, its primary market.
DECT is also able to compete with WiFi in FMC, according to DSP Group. The company is cooperating with few OEMs and a big operator in a development of CDMA Mobile Handset that has DECT function. This Handset will use DECT in the home and CDMA outside of the home. This solution will surely have an edge in terms of voice quality at home.
