NEC announced that Zain Kuwait has selected NEC’s Femtocell solution to enhance the indoor mobile experience of its enterprise and consumer customers.

Zain plans to launch Kuwait’s first commercial high-speed, high-quality Femtocell service to its enterprise customers this year.

“In September 2010 we began a thorough user trial with NEC. During this successful trial we found that our customers highly valued the quality of service Femtocell technology brings,” said Zain Kuwait CTO, Yaqoub Khajah. “NEC’s Femtocell solution provided high throughput and superior indoor coverage.”

An NEC Femtocell is a small wireless cellular base station similar in size and appearance to a broadband router that connects over broadband to a mobile operator’s core network. It provides dedicated mobile coverage and capacity for full personal use delivering excellent experience and increased customer loyalty.

NEC is providing Zain Kuwait an end-to-end Femtocell solution that includes NEC Femtocell, and Femtocell gateway systems that connect to Zain’s existing core systems. Zain Kuwait’s customers can install the NEC Femtocell with no intervention from Zain due to its “plug and play” capability.
