Roke Manor Research has developed the world’s first 3G wide area coverage femtocell capability that requires minimum infrastructure.

Using picoChip’s technology as the development platform, Roke’s reference design has a 40-kilometer range which delivers more than 40,000 times the area covered of most other femtocells.

It is also the first to support full mobility at speeds of up to 120 km per hour, allowing mobile users to travel while connected to the 3G base stations.

This solution could be used to cost-effectively serve sparsely-populated rural areas that are conventionally thought of as uneconomic, or to quickly deploy cellular coverage.
