Digital enhanced cordless telecommunications (DECT)
Similar term(s): Digital European Cordless Telecommunications.
DECT is a digital wireless technology which originated in Europe, but is now
being adopted increasingly worldwide, for cordless telephones, wireless offices
and even wireless telephone lines to the home.
Unlike GSM - Global System for
Mobile - it is a radio access technology, rather than a comprehensive system
architecture; DECT has been designed and specified to be compatible with many
other types of network, such as the PSTN (conventional telephone networks), ISDN
(new digital and data phone networks), GSM (mobile phone networks) and more.
