Femtocells support mobile phones in developing nations

Femtocells support mobile phones in developing nations

CSL has produced a reference design for a GSM/GPRS/EDGE/E-EDGE femtocell (called Centaur) based on a picoChip software defined radio.

Many operators are focusing on 3G femtocells, which are much easier to integrate into existing networks. CSL feel that 2G femtocells will be useful in emerging markets where 3G may not be widely adopted.

2G femtocells will also be useful in the UK where the low power GSM operators such as UK01 can utilise them.
