See below


Explanation:
As no context is available, I would translate equipment by Ausrüstung, which is just as general a term in German, so it would be:

drahtlose Telekommunikationsausrüstung

(you could also write it like this: Telekommunikations-Ausrüstung)

Mobiltelefongeräte or Funktelefongeräte


Explanation:
"wireless telephony" means "Mobiltelephonie" = "Funktelephonie"

The word "terminal" is not in your context above so the "equipment" might be more than just "Endgeräte". "Zubehör" does not mean "Equipment", it means "Accessories".

"cordless" means "schnurlos", and neither term is used much in technical texts as Pawellek mentioned. When used, the terms describe very short range wireless telephones used in the home.

"wireless telephone equipment" means "Mobiltelefongeräte" "or Funktelefongeräte" of every description, including the cell phones, the transmitting antennas on buildings, car phones and any other technical device connected with making a phone call while not connected to a piece of wire.
