In this paper a novel approach for merging the wireless telephony network with the wireless data network has been presented. The approach taken is to merge the upper layers of the DECT protocol stack with the WLAN physical and MAC layer technology, using a protocol adaptation layer (PAL). This merging of technologies, and so merging voice and data into a single wireless network, is an enabling factor which will lead to innovative application in the field of wireless and mobile communications.
