The ULE specification was created as an initial cooperation between DECT Forum and ETSI.
The physical layer of ULE makes use of the existing ETSI DECT specification. The technical specification work for the upper part of ULE transport layer has been carried out in ETSI TC DECT, with updates to the following
- Data Link Control
- Network Layer
- Interworking Unit
- Application Layer Protocol Negotiation
The application layer protocol HAN FUN (Home Area Network FUNctional protocol) has been released by the ULE Alliance in November 2013 and covers the following functions:
- Protocol Defininition
- Device Definition
- Device Management
Registration, Binding and Configuration
HAN FUN ensures interoperability for the specificed applications and devices. In addition it supports proprietary extensions where required.
The ULE Alliance took care of several Interoperability test events (IOP) during the development of the standards to ensure real-life interoperability.
The HAN Fun code is publically available at GitHub.
