Denmark's TDC to Test NEC's Femtocell

TDC Mobile A/S, Denmark's largest mobile operator, is preparing for a potential roll-out of the NEC Femtocell solution in late 2009. The companies are conducting a friendly user trial involving several Femtocell Access Points deployed in consumer locations and connected to TDC's commercial core network system.

TDC will offer its customers a small low-power plug-and-play consumer device (Femtocell Access Point) to enable localized 3G coverage and dedicated capacity in their home while using their broadband connection as a backhaul.

NEC said it has commercial Femtocell contracts in place and several live trials underway with operators around the world.
