ULE Calls U.S., Industrial Markets

The standard is used in about 580 million homes worldwide if you include cordless phones. About 50 million units are in Europe, including gateways and VoIP boxes, according to Brad Russell, a market research director at Parks Associates.

ULE is emerging in synch with the widespread use of voice as a human-to-machine interface. One out of three U.S. homes now has a smart speaker, one in four homes has a smart device for controlling lights and other systems, and 43% intend to buy a smart home device in the next 12 months, said Russell.
