This webinar will introduce the newly released ETSI standard: DECT-2020 NR. It fills a gap currently in the IoT connectivity environment; it addresses industrial applications requiring either or both massive scale (mMTC) and/or ultra-reliable low latency (URLLC), complementing today’s 5G technology. The technology enables simple deployment and very cost-efficient operation, demanded by various industries such as logistics and asset tracking, industry 4.0 and building automation as well as condition monitoring. Thanks to its ultra-reliable autonomous and automatic operation, there is no need for network infrastructure nor for a network operator. It can be deployed anywhere by anyone in no time. The standard applies modern radio technologies such as OFDM modulation, efficient channel codings and HARQ. It also has a dedicated global spectrum at around 1900 MHz, ensuring low interference levels. Wirepas has been one of the key contributors to the new standard, which builds on current Wirepas technology.
