NEC and RTX extend partnership announcing next generation enterprise DECT solutions with CAT-iq functionality
DECT still remains the most competitive technology for enterprise mobility
At the conference RTX Products and leading market player, NEC Unified Solutions, demonstrated a close partnership and jointly announced the next generation of DECT solutions, including CAT-iq functionality.
NEC and RTX have identified a clear market demand for extended services building on improved speech quality, security, and enhanced business services thanks to easy integration of web application services into the DECT handset. This requires a much more open standard approach than common in the industry today. To address these market requirements NEC and RTX will collaborate closely on developing DECT technology, features and applications that fully take advantage of the CAT-iq functionality, which is currently under standardisation.
Over the past years NEC and RTX Products have been working closely together in bringing to market a full range of enterprise DECT terminals with sophisticated functionality including integrated Unified Communications, messaging, alarming, and localisation services.
"In Enterprise and SME markets DECT still proves to be the best choice for voice communication", Bert van Koelen, Business Manager Mobility at NEC Unified Solutions explains. "With its scalability, security, and robustness, wide range of cost-effective handsets and with applications truly enhancing business processes, DECT provides an economic and effective mobility solution that is unrivalled".
At the forefront
NEC has a rich DECT heritage since it acquired Philips Business Communications, which has been at the forefront of DECT technology developments from its outset in the early 1990s, leading to standardising IP DECT across the entire NEC portfolio and with sophisticated solutions like dual band (GPS controlled) IP DECT for cruise lines.
RTX Products provides a wide range of wireless products to various OEM/ODM customers throughout the world. RTX has since 1994 been leading provider of wireless solutions based on DECT and continues to drive next generation specifications including CAT-iq. RTX Products provides cutting edge technology products with a cost optimized production setup in China combined with advanced enterprise software development in Denmark
NEC's (IP) DECT Mobility solutions incorporating RTX originated handsets are available across the globe through the companies' networks of sales organisations and business partners. The next generation of CAT-iq based handsets are expected within a year.
