DECT Forum Introduces openD for Wireless Software Development

Market Launch Conference in Cooperation with Fraunhofer IIS Nuremberg.

BERN/NUREMBERG--()--DECT Forum, the worldwide association of the wireless home and enterprise communication industry, is pleased to announce the market launch of openD, a new platform for software development using the DECT air interface for wireless applications. The launch conference will take place in Nuremberg, Fraunhofer IIS, on February 25, 2019. Free registration at:

This is an important moment for wireless developers all over the world as the strengths of DECT and ULE (Ultra Low Energy) will become more accessible to developers and product managers alike. By creating a seamless interface to Raspberry PI and to STM Nucleo prototyping platforms, openD will participate in the huge developer and maker movement using these platforms.

openD will act as a catalyst to engage new vertical industries as DECT becomes a 5G mobile technology. It was developed to address applications that combine the USPs of DECT and ULE on a single platform – highly reliable, low latency applications that require the delivery of voice/data in mission critical environments.

Unique Technical Advantages for Vertical Markets

With over 50 million DECT capable home gateways supporting HD Voice and Smart Home services, the continued success of DECT is guaranteed in the traditional target markets. Beyond these markets though, DECT and ULE are also attracting the attention of developers in other professional vertical markets. From high quality audio to healthcare and industry, the unique technical advantages of DECT are being discovered by a new developer generation. To underpin this, openD will enable users to quickly tap into the strength of the technology offering open source sample code for each feature. openD is (DECT) chip independent and delivers a common set of APIs for base and client. It is available under Apache 2.0 or GPL v2 License and comes with a complete set of open source developer tools.

Entrance is free to the openD launch conference and hands-on tutorial (Fraunhofer IIS, Nuremberg) on February 25, 2019. Please register for the openD community and the event at: openD will also be presented at Embedded World 2019 in Nuremberg (February 26-28, DECT Forum booth 4A/511).
