DECT ULE Technology Summit is a two-day event that includes Conference, Workshops, Hackathon and DECT Awards.

To accelerate mass market adoption, the DECT Forum and the ULE Alliance developed ULE technology as an extension of DECT, the de-facto standard for residential and business Voice and Data communications. ULE technology transforms millions of existing DECT installations in homes and businesses into secure, cost-efficient and versatile gateways for the implementation of home automation, security and climate control scenarios in residential and enterprise environments.

This conference will address recent developments in connected home and enterprise applications and provides a technology outlook for ULE, a proven and reliable, low-power wireless technology that enables simple, reliable and cost-effective connected home and business platform.
