New Specifications for CDMA2000 Femtocells

3GPP2, the CDMA Development Group (CDG) and the Femto Forum published a set of specifications for femtocell devices that incorporate CDMA2000 1X and HRPD (EVDO) radio access technologies.

These specifications describe all aspects of a SIP/IMS-based femtocell architecture for highly-scalable deployment of femtocells that can provide voice, multimedia, and data services to existing CDMA2000 1X and HRPD mobile devices.

"This announcement represents culmination of the first major phase of 3GPP2's extensive standardization project for femtocell devices -- work that has been heavily supported by CDMA2000 system operators, many of whom have already announced commercial femtocell deployments or plans for commercial offerings in the near future," said Cheryl Blum, 3GPP2 Steering Committee Chair. "The advanced SIP/IMS-based architecture and inclusion of industry-first femtozone service capabilities represent the commitment of the CDMA2000 vendors and system operators to delivering advanced interoperable femtocell solutions."http://www.3gpp2.orghttp://www.femtoforum.org
