ip.access Brings Femtocells into the Connected Home

ip.access has developed new 3G Home Routing technology that connects 3G phones into a home network via its Oyster 3G femtocell. 3G Home Routing uses the Oyster 3G to provide a real-time "bridge" between the user's home network and any 3G handset, enabling a new generation of entertainment and communications applications for consumers, and allowing them to use their mobile phone in new and exciting ways at home.

Using a femtocell, a 3G phone can connect directly to a home network, enabling new applications such as streaming live video from a home media server to the handset, using the phone to browse the music on the home server and select tracks to play, or displaying a slideshow of phone photos on the TV.

Because all the data traffic is routed locally over the femtocell, the end-user benefits from full HSDPA data rates for all their connected home applications. 3G Home Routing removes the delay associated with carrying data traffic from the phone over the mobile operator's core network and back, which also saves costs for the operator.
