Lantiq joins DECT ULE Alliance to Enable Home Automation Solutions for its Customers

Germany, September 26, 2013 – Lantiq, a leading supplier of broadband access and home networking technologies, today announced it has joined the ULE Alliance to combine forces for Ultra Low Energy (ULE) solutions for the connected home.

Lantiq shares the view of the ULE Alliance that DECT ULE is the best choice for home automation and actively contributes to further developing the standardization work for DECT and ULE (TS 102 939-1 and EN 300 175 series).

Lantiq furthermore believes the Broadband Gateway / Router will be the central hub to control all automation services within the homes.

Why Joining the ULE Alliance?

The DECT/Cat-iq standards combine unique features like absolute robustness, longest reach, low power and unique market maturity. Integrating DECT ULE into the Broadband Gateway brings services for home automation / smart metering / home control, alarm functions, health- and cloud services into mass market deployment.

By combining forces in the ULE Alliance – with strong partners like Arcadyan, Zyxel, Netgear, Deutsche Telekom, Dialog Semiconductor, DSP Group and many more – Lantiq enables its customers to benefit from standardized and interoperable solutions for the connected home.
