Improving indoor 3G coverage and providing dedicated 3G capacity for mobile users is critical for mobile operators looking to reduce churn and expand customer acquisition.
NEC Europe general manager Anil Kohli said femtocells give mobile operators a cost-efficient 3G network that enables them to offer premium mobile services with an excellent consumer experience.
Kohli said its femtocell systems are fully standard compliant, interoperable and compatible in a multi-vendor eco-system, enabling mobile operators to build economies of scale for quick-to-market, mass-femtocell deployments.
Its end-to-end femtocell solution comprises a 3G access point, femtocell gateway, access point management and provisioning system. They have been deployed by mobile operators in countries around the world, including Japan, France and Norway.
"We anticipate a shift next year to premium mobile and bundled offers and will continue to work with mobile operators to integrate femtocell solutions into their wider service propositions," he said.
