ECCT (European Communications Consultancy Team)
Company Website
ECCT (European Communications Consultancy Team), founded in 1993 in Eindhoven the Netherlands, as a pre-qualification house for Philips Consumer Electronics, concentrated on testing and approbation activities for telecom terminal equipment in the European countries. In 1995 a development team was set up, consisting of engineers who had many years of experience in telecom engineering at Philips Semiconductors. Since that time we have built up a lot of experience with DECT developments.

Our activities are:
Development - Hardware and software development of telecommunication terminals, such as cordless telephones (DECT, CT0, CT1), digital answering machines, Bluetooth and wireless LAN applications.

Testing - Inhouse pre-qualification and guidance through the electronic and acoustical verification process (TBR6,TBR10, TBR21, TBR38, TBR22, EMC and safety testing). We modify and adapt equipment such that it passes all specification parameters in case of failures.

Consultancy -  in the areas of product definition, electronic design and manufacturing.

Fraunhofer IIS
Company website

Fraunhofer IIS offers a range of services to its customers:
* Consulting- advice on the introduction or development of DECT technology
* Measurement - bit-error-rate-measurement in the target environment, for example
* Licensing of hard- and software -  either ready-made OEM-products or as a source code for  own developments.
* Customized developments and adaptations
* Prototypes and small-volume production - in cooperation with the Innovation Centre for Telecommunication Technology GmbH (IZT) which is part of the Fraunhofer group manufacturing of prototypes and small- to medium-volume production.

Customer-specific work is done on the basis of a research and development contract, involving an offer with fixed price, scope of work and a time schedule, based on the general terms and conditions of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft.   Access to existing know-how or hard- and software is provided within the framework of a licensing agreement involving either an up-front payment or a royalty per unit. Both types of contract are used if, for example, existing know-how is adapted to specific customer requirements.
