Concord ON-based telecom equipment supplier Aastra says it's bringing the Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications (DECT) protocol to North America. Aastra's development team has linked DECT, which is popular in Europe, to a more global network language: SIP. The result, according to the firm, is a high-quality wireless voice experience for companies with multiple campuses. Aastra says it's positioning the system as a flexible wireless VoIP underpinning that includes DECT handsets, centrally managed access points, and integration capabilities with SIP-based, hybrid and open-source IP-PBXs. The system will be available in early June.
