Home Femtocells set to unleash potential of the 3G phone

Home femtocells are allowing mobile operators to deliver a personal 3G signal that will unleash the full potential of the latest phones, according to a new briefing paper from femtocell developer, ip.access.

The combination of excellent voice quality, higher data speeds, longer battery life, plus simple connectivity and lower costs means that femtocells are now set to enable the very best user experience, positioning 3G phones to become the hub of in-home entertainment and internet connectivity, ip.access has stated.

Dr Andy Tiller, VP marketing for ip.access, explained the benefits to target customers and the type of services they will be able to enjoy in the femtocell-connected home: “Femtocells provide so much more than simply a better signal indoors. Families can benefit from streamlined and money saving in-home data and voice packages, while the technical and social connectivity provided by femtozone services unlocks new possibilities to make the mobile phone the key interface to home entertainment, both online and offline.”
