    In today’s world wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enormous applications which made our everyday life much easier. In most of these applications, the unlicensed 2.4 GHz frequency band has been used for sensor communications. Due to the wide use, the chance of getting interference in this frequency band is quite high. Thus, a reliable and real-time communication in mass WSNs can not be guaranteed, which is essential for industrial applications. In this paper, we evaluate the performance of Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications - Ultra Low Energy (DECT-ULE) for robust communication in dense WSNs and found that it can cope with the limitations of existing standards. We show that DECT-ULE can elegantly handle dense WSNs by allocating communication channels with excellent quality and minimum delay.
