Third Successful DECT ULE Interoperability Test Event

The event took place at the premises of DSP Group

The ULE interoperability test event between three participating companies AVM, DSP Group and RTX proved to be very successful. The companies attended with solutions composed of multiple vendor chipset platforms and different ULE Stack implementations. Interoperability was tested between systems of ULE Nodes and systems of ULE bases. The major new features being tested in this IOP were packet fragmentation and the security aspects. The IOP test event provided the opportunity for multiple implementations of the security measures based on AES CCM to be tested for the first time and was successful in achieving interoperability between the tested devices.

According to Jochen Kilian, Chairman of the Technical team of the ULE Working Group within the DECT Forum is this third IOP event was again a major milestone in the creation of the ULE standard. The good achievements in the former IOP events allowed us this time to concentrate on the DLC Layer. During the event we could successfully interoperate different implementations of the DLC Layer which provides packet segmentation, packet desegmentation and security with packet encryption as well as packet authentication. In this IOP event you could again feel the energizing spirit within the ULE community to create together a superior technology for home automation, security and climate control.

Andreas Zipp, Chairman of the DECT Forum, added that the DECT Forum appreciates the successful work of the ULE Working Group to create with ULE the world’s leading control network eco-system for home and building based on the proven reliability and range of the DECT radio technology.

About ULE
ULE (Ultra Low Energy) is a Local Area Network (LAN) technology, ideal for low power applications within 300-meter range and can provide sustained longevity for battery powered consumer equipment such as burglar alarms, and security cameras. ULE builds upon the mature technology, DECT, and inherits all the advantages of DECT such as worldwide interference free spectrum, proven range, simple plug and play connections, and all the benefits of an existing ecosystem of multiple solution vendors.
