Nokia Siemens Networks and Ubiquisys Team on 3G Femto Cells

Nokia Siemens Networks has signed a collaboration agreement with Ubiquisys to provide mobile network operators with femtocell solutions that offer greatly improved 3G network coverage and quality of mobile services at home. Under the agreement, Nokia Siemens Networks and Ubiquisys will cooperate in the marketing and sales of the joint solution to mobile operators worldwide.

The Ubiquisys ZoneGate femtocell supports industry standard interfaces and conforms to Nokia Siemens Networks' Femto Gateway's open architecture. The plug-and-play 3G access point uses a mobile subscriber's broadband connection to transport voice and data calls to the 3G core network.

"The femtocell market is moving at an astonishing speed and 2008 will undoubtedly prove to be ‘make-up-your-mind' time for many operators. We are currently involved in 10 trials and expect several to expand into larger deployments later this year," said Chris Gilbert, CEO of Ubiquisys.http://www.ubiquisys.com
