Abstract

Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) is a standard series [EN300.175-part1-7] specified by ETSI, and CAT-iq (Cordless Advanced Technology - internet and quality) is a set of product certification and interoperability profiles [CAT-iq] defined by DECT Forum. DECT Ultra Low Energy (DECT ULE or just ULE) is an air interface technology building on the key fundamentals of traditional DECT/CAT-iq but with specific changes to significantly reduce the power consumption at the expense of data throughput. DECT ULE devices with requirements on power consumption, as specified by ETSI in [TS102.939-1] and [TS102.939-2], will operate on special power- optimized silicon but can connect to a DECT Gateway supporting traditional DECT/CAT-iq for cordless telephony and data as well as the ULE extensions.

       Transmission of IPv6 Packets over Digital Enhanced Cordless             Telecommunications (DECT) Ultra Low Energy (ULE)

Abstract

   Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) Ultra Low Energy    (ULE) is a low-power air interface technology that is proposed by the    DECT Forum and is defined and specified by ETSI.

   The DECT air interface technology has been used worldwide in    communication devices for more than 20 years.  It has primarily been    used to carry voice for cordless telephony but has also been deployed    for data-centric services.

   DECT ULE is a recent addition to the DECT interface primarily    intended for low-bandwidth, low-power applications such as sensor    devices, smart meters, home automation, etc.  As the DECT ULE    interface inherits many of the capabilities from DECT, it benefits    from operation that is long-range and interference-free, worldwide-    reserved frequency band, low silicon prices, and maturity.  There is    an added value in the ability to communicate with IPv6 over DECT ULE,    such as for Internet of Things applications.

   This document describes how IPv6 is transported over DECT ULE using    IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN)    techniques.
