There is currently no plan for that.  As the POC is all-IP these days, I don't
have particularly high hopes regarding how well it can carry Modem communication,
with all the jitter that's going on.  A few years ago, the POC was still entirely
ISDN based, but those days are over :/

You're free to try, but I wouldn't have my hopes up.  Also, DECT is actually using
lossy compression for voice, as far as I know...
