NETGEAR Shows Femtocell Residential Gateway

NETGEAR announced the availability of its first Femtocell Voice Gateway (DVG834GH) -- a single-box solution that includes a residential gateway with integrated ADSL2+ modem, router, 10/100 wired LAN switch, 802.11g wireless access point, VoIP, SPI double firewall, and 3G UTMS femtocell technology with HSDPA from Ubiquisys Ltd.

The NETGEAR Femtocell Voice Gateway (DVG834GH)plugs into an ADSL line and enables consumers to share their broadband connection to the Internet with all of their mobile devices and networked computers, both wired and wirelessly.

Evaluation units are available now for operator testing, with commercial availability expected during the first half of 2008.

NETGEAR has integrated the Ubiquisys ZoneGate module into the Femtocell Voice Gateway, which is a plug-and-play 3G access point that uses a mobile subscriber's broadband connection to transport voice and data calls to the core network using a range of standards-based interfaces. The unit has a double firewall (NAT + SPI) while the VPN pass-through allows safe connections to business networks from a home or office. The unit also supports TR-069 Remote Management and can also support the future addition of such advanced features as IGMP Multimedia Support.http://www.netgear.comhttp://www.ubiquisys.com/
