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.

How to get even more from NB-IoT

By Martin Lesund June 9, 2022

Billions of remote IoT end devices are quietly doing their jobs, measuring humidity, temperature, vibration, air quality, or any of a hundred other parameters. The data from these devices is valuable, but that value can only be realized once the data is transmitted to the cloud to be sifted, analyzed, and then used to make informed decisions.

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?
