ip.access Expands its nano3G Range of Access Points

ip.access has announced a new addition to its nano3G range of Access Points, which provide in-building 3G coverage and capacity using the latest femto technology.

The new S class femtocell is designed for use in smaller offices and shops and can support up to eight simultaneous users. Easy to install and set up, the S class femtocell is based on the award-winning ip.access technology at the heart of AT&T's 3G MicroCell.

Unlike residential femtocell units, however, the S class femtocells can be configured for open access, two-way handover with the macro network and real-time alarms.

Both the S class and E class units are provided by ip.access as part of the nano3G end-to-end RAN solution for operators. The standalone S class unit can be easily installed by the end customer as it simply requires a power supply and an Internet connection. The new S class product is already in operator trials.

The more powerful, rugged E class unit is normally wall or ceiling mounted, or could even be installed in a roof void. This installation is typically undertaken by the operator.
