Telia-Sonera to test Alcatel-Lucent's In-Building Base Station Router Femto Solution

TeliaSonera has invited Alcatel-Lucent to participate in a trial of its Base Station Router (BSR) Femto in-building wireless access solution in Denmark. TeliaSonera's planned trial activities in Denmark are expected to start this spring.

The Femto Base Station Router integrates (3G) W-CDMA/HSPA radio access and core network elements into a compact unit. At the heart of the BSR-Femto is Alcatel-Lucent's "flat IP" architecture and auto-configuration approach. With an auto-configuration feature, the BSR-Femtos are able to register themselves automatically on the network, a feature that enables operators to deploy and more easily manage large numbers of smaller, stand-alone base stations without the deployment costs normally associated with network expansions.http://www.alcatel-lucent.com
