Alcatel-Lucent and Airvana to Jointly Demo CDMA Femtocell

Airvana and Alcatel-Lucent will jointly demonstrate an end-to-end CDMA/EV-DO femtocell solution,

supporting voice and mobile high-speed data services, at this week's CTIA Wireless 2008 tradeshow in Las Vegas. The CDMA femtocell solution envisioned by both companies combines Airvana's radio access technology, including the femto access point and Femto Network Gateway services provided by the Universal Access Gateway (UAG), together with Alcatel-Lucent's IMS core supporting CDMA-SIP convergence.

The companies said that by deploying a flat IP architecture using IMS and Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) standards, the solution provides support for both CDMA2000 1X and EV-DO Rev. A service, together with unique capabilities to allow seamless inter-working between the femtocell and the broader macro network, in order to ensure that users have a consistent, high-quality mobile experience for voice, data, and video services as they move between the indoor and outdoor environments.http://www.airvana.com
