Single box to deliver quad-play services
Ubiquisys, a UK-based manufacturer of 3G femtocells, and SerComm, a Taiwan-based manufacturer of broadband and wireless networking equipment, have launched FC210U integrated home gateway.
According to Ubiquisys, the new gateway incorporates 3G femtocell technology, together with WiFi and DSL, providing network operators with a single box to deliver quad-play services.
Ubiquisys has said that the FC210U is currently in mass production to support a forthcoming commercial deployment. In addition to providing quality 3G coverage and network capacity, the FC210U will also allow operators to deploy a range of new revenue generating applications and services to mobile handsets including; automatic audio and video downloads, social networking and multimedia streaming.
Chris Gilbert, CEO of Ubiquisys, said: We are beginning to see the first commercial deployments of our femtocells with operators across Europe and Asia. Operators with both fixed and mobile offerings are keen to work with their existing hardware partners to integrate femtocell technology into home gateways. From day one we designed the ZoneGate module so to minimize footprint and power usage to make integration as simple as possible and we are delighted to be working with industry leaders such as SerComm to fulfill this need.
Ben Lin, founder and chief technology officer of SerComm, said: We are pleased to announce the availability of FC210U, as it not only underlines our leadership in providing networking products with latest femtocell technology to our customers but is testimony to a new era of fixed and mobile convergence.
