Wisconsin's Mosaic Telecom Offers 3G HSPA Femtocells to Subscribers

Mosaic Telecom, a rural service provider in Wisconsin, will is offering personal, mini, 3G base stations, connected via fixed broadband to its subscribers to support high-quality quad-play services and mobile broadband in their premises. Mosaic has selected Nokia Siemens Networks' 3GPP standard compliant femtocell network solution and Airvana's 3G HSPA femtocell to provide personalized 3G coverage.

Airvana's 3GPP Release 8 standards based femto CPE device integrates with the Nokia Siemens Networks 3G Femto Gateway, Operation and Maintenance Server (OMS) and Provisioning Manager. Nokia Siemens Networks' Value-Added Reseller (VAR), Pario Solutions, will commence the deployment of the solution in the third quarter of 2010.

"Femtocells ensure subscribers enjoy the best indoor mobile voice, video and data services, and help offload traffic from the broader 3G network," said Rick Vergin, chief executive officer of Mosaic Telecom. "In addition to securing higher customer satisfaction, we also expect this implementation to drive data traffic growth in the network, leading to increased average revenue per user (ARPUs)."
