RTX, a leading provider of wireless communications solutions, today announces the world’s first IPv6-enabled DECT ULE wireless module at the Broadband World Forum show (www.broadbandworldforum.com), being held between 16th-18th October at the RAI Center, Amsterdam.

The RTX DECT ULE module (RTX 1050 / 1055) will be on the DECT Forum stand (B51) at Broadband World Forum. RTX will showcase the use of an IPv6-enabled DECT ULE module for innovative wireless low power devices and applications that will help make the “Internet of Things” a reality. All devices, from fridges to fire alarms, will eventually be connected to the internet as well as to cloud services, and RTX’s new module will be an important part of enabling such connectivity for new devices.

DECT ULE is the “ultra-low energy” variant of the DECT standard, which uses the 1.9GHz band and suffers less interference than Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Zigbee that operate at 2.4GHz. It provides connectivity to the internet for battery-powered equipment or metering applications (such as home automation, healthcare, security systems and smart metering systems) within a 300-meter range. IPv6 is the latest version of the IP protocol and is an important development because, with the ever-increasing number of new devices being connected to the internet, it replaces IPv4, which is running out of IP addresses. With IPv6 this cannot happen - all devices and all sensors can have their own IP address.

Jesper Mailind, President and CEO of RTX, said, “Our announcement today puts RTX at the forefront of technical innovation of IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Networks: (6LoWPAN). We believe that the Internet Protocol can and should be applied to even the smallest devices and that low power devices with limited processing capabilities should be able to enter into the “Internet of Things”. RTX being the first company to announce an IPv6-enabled DECT ULE module demonstrates our commitment to this new high-growth marketplace.”

With the world’s first IPv6-enabled DECT ULE module, RTX is building upon its well-established product suite incorporating all of the advantages of DECT connectivity. These include: a worldwide interference-free spectrum, proven long and stable indoor range, out-of-the-box connectivity, and all the benefits of an established open eco-system from multiple solution vendors. The module will enable enterprises and service providers to migrate to IPv6 and give the critical connectivity for applications supporting low-powered devices on the internet. The module is built upon proven silicon technology from the long term RTX partner, Dialog Semiconductor Plc.

Visit RTX on the DECT Forum stand on B51 at Broadband World Forum, Amsterdam, to experience a unique insight into the possibilities of RTX’s DECT ULE eco system and learn more about the Internet of Things.
