Hitachi and Airvana Enter Development Agreement for CDMA Femtocells

Airvana announced an agreement with Hitachi Communication Technologies to create and deliver customized versions of Airvana Femtocell products for the Japanese market. The solution will inter-work with Hitachi Com core network products.

Airvana's contribution to the solution includes its HubBub CDMA femtocell, which supports both 1x-RTT and EV-DO services; its Universal Access Gateway, a carrier-class femtocell network gateway; and its Femtocell Service Manager, a scalable auto-configuration and remote management system. Hitachi Com brings its carrier-grade Femtocell Convergence Server that allows operators to connect femtocells to an existing mobile switching core, leveraging features and supplementary services that operators have developed over the years to provide service parity between the macro-cellular and femto-cellular networks.
