Airvana Lands Global OEM Deal with Motorola for CDMA Femtocell

Airvana announced a global OEM agreement to provide Motorola with a CDMA femtocell solution. Airvana said its CDMA femtocells uniquely support both 1xRTT and EV-DO technologies to ensure users have a consistent mobile experience for voice and data services whether they are connected through their femtocell or the macro network. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Femtocells are small, low-cost and low-power cellular access points that connect to a consumer's existing broadband Internet service to deliver enhanced cellular radio coverage and high data speeds to mobile phones in the home.

  • In February 2008, Airvana announced that Thomson entered into a global sourcing agreement to use its Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) femtocell technology in conjunction with residential gateways.
