The equipment can establish a MAC layer communication to the device-under-test, emulating either a fixed or portable part. Special MAC layer test messages are also supported. A number of 'clever' features are available to enable the tester to provide accelerated product testing, to maximise testing throughput.

The DECT monitor is a tool for monitoring DECT on-air traffic. The graphic presentation of the radio signal strength allows a quick overview of the usage of DECT channels at any point in time. In addition, the capabilities of all base stations within the coverage area of the DECT monitor are shown. A DECT radio module from Fraunhofer is needed for operating the DECT monitor. This module is connected with a PC by a serial communication interface. Module details here.

Kirk 1600 Handset: A professional diagnostic tool for fault finding and deployment of DECT systems
The Kirk 1600 handset contains various features to simplify fault finding in existing DECT solutions and for setting up new DECT installations. The handset allows the user to see all DECT systems both business - and residential systems in the area and to find out if there are too many systems running i.e. if there is too much radio activity in the air. Kirk 1600 can be set to find all current bases running, but it is possible by making a selection of the RFPI no. to search for a particular group of bases.
It is thus easy to determine the probability of having "hot spots" in the DECT system. It is possible to see how much noise there is on each of the 120 channels, with noise levels from 90 dBm to 60 dBm in jumps of 5 dBm. The Kirk 1600 is able to lock to a base and avoid handover to other bases, enabling to see the frequencies and timeslots used and consequently to find out if special frequencies or timeslots create problems for the DECT system
