T-Mobile, Huawei, Ubiquisys Test Femtocell Interoperability

By Paula Bernier, Executive Editor, IP Communications Magazines

T-Mobile is working with femtocell providers Ubiquisys Ltd. and Huawei (News - Alert) Technologies on interoperability testing, which will take place at the service provider’s labs over the next six months.

The two vendors’ femtocells will communicate via the 3GPP’s new Iuh standardised open interface and connected to a Huawei femto gateway into T-Mobile’s (News - Alert) core network.
“To reach their full market potential, femtocells must be more like mobile phones -- interchangeable with the network they connect to,” said Will Franks, CTO and founder at Ubiquisys (News - Alert). “As a pioneer in this industry, we designed our femtocell from day one to connect to multiple femto gateways, ready for the introduction of a 3GPP standardized interface.”
To find out more about T-Mobile, visit the company at the M2M Evolution Conference. To be held Jan. 20 in Miami and collocated with ITEXPO East 2010, the M2M Evolution Conference will focus on how telemetry has been changing to take advantage of the Internet, where WAN and LAN systems were points of aggregation in the past today’s machines benefit from the ability to connect worldwide. And as the machines continue to look to network the wireless world represents a large growth opportunity for data communication. The company’s U.S. director of M2M, John Horn is speaking during the conference. Don’t wait. Register now.
