Could DECT NR+ democratize massive IoT in 5G?

By Kristian Sæther June 15, 2022

DECT NR+ (NR+) will be the first-ever, non-cellular wireless technology to become part of a cellular generation (“G”) standard, starting with 5G. It's also license-free and targets massive IoT applications targeting millions or billions of nodes. This takes massive IoT over 5G and private 5G networking from unaffordable for all but a privileged few to something any company can access.

What is DECT-2020 New Radio (NR), and how big a deal is it?

By Kristian Sæther December 8, 2021

As Nordic recently announced: A non-cellular, license-exempt radio standard – DECT-2020 NR – is now part of the 5G standards set by the ITU (International Telecommunication Union). How is that even possible? There are many other established non-cellular, license-except 'proprietary' wireless standards, so why didn't they become part of the 5G standards well ahead of DECT-2020 NR?
