2. Wireless Loop (WLL) Users in a neighbourhood typically served by a telephone company wired local loop can be connected instead by a cordless phone that exchanges signals with a neighbourhood antenna. A standard telephone (or any device containing a telephone such as a computer modem or fax machine) is simply plugged into a fixed access unit (FAU), which contains a transceiver. The wireless Local Loop can be installed in an urban area where many users share same antenna.
3. Home Cordless Phones With huge range of multiple handset, one cell DECT systems on market these days, people can install a single cell antenna anywhere in their home and have a DECT cordless handset in each room.
4. Cordless Terminal Mobility The arrangement that is used by a lot of businesses for their cordless PBX phone systems, could also be used by a service wanting to provide cordless phone numbers for individual subscribers. This system in general will provide less mobility than that of a GSM based system, which would give it's users a greater range.
5. GSM/DECT Internetworking The DECT standard is able to interact with GSM standard, allowing users to move freely with a telephone from outdoors (GSM signals) into indoor environments (DECT signals). In future many GSM service providers will want to extend their services to support DECT signals inside buildings. A dual-mode phone would automatically first search for a DECT signal and then a GSM signal if DECT is not available.
