There is a DECT kernel stack, written by Patrick McHardy, that might
allow this. However, the stack is still a little bit experimental.

Alternatively, there is the AVM Fritzbox 7270 and similar devices, that
implement a DECT base station and can dial out via sip. So the handset
could access your asterisk-box via sip. However, you are a little bit
less flexible here than with the kernel stack from Patrick.
