picoChip and Kineto Team in UMA-Enabled Femtocell Market

Kineto Wireless and picoChip, a start-up specializing in software defined radio technology, are developing a UMA-enabled femtocell reference design. The reference design, based on picoChip's single-chip solutions, and Kineto's UMA client software will enable 3G femtocells to overcome network integration barriers to accelerate mass market adoption.

Femtocells are low-cost cellular access points for mobile operators looking to provide enhanced, in-building 3G coverage within homes and small businesses.
