In our previous blogs, we’ve looked at what DECT (Digitally Enhanced Cordless Telephony) is and why it is the choice of professionals and consumers alike when secure communications are vital. How could DECT benefit your market or business?

Manufacturing and warehousing

  • Keep up with the demands of the environment with a highly durable handset
  • Easily clean devices to maintain disinfection standards


  • Streamline operations at every stage of the retail and customer journey
  • Send tasks to associates so that they can accept the task based on their schedule and report when the task is done/complete
  • Send secure messages – with broadcast, group, or individually targeted handsets

Leisure and entertainment

  • Stay in touch with colleagues no matter their location
  • Manage customer demands with a highly durable handset
  • Send tasks to cleaning crew so that they can ensure clean & refreshed rooms – and confirm when ready for new guests

In the final DECT Forum video, we look at ways in which DECT underpins many different market verticals, including mission-critical systems, unified communications, healthcare, broadband home, and enterprise communication. And as we look to the future, we can see that the DECT industry clearly has the experience and capability to deliver seamless collaboration solutions in the emerging 5G ecosystem.
