Femtocell Multi-band Residential

Femtocell Multi-band Residential enhances the 3G/4G mobile experience in homes

As the world goes digital, people’s daily lives are increasingly dependent on easy access to data, wherever they are. Flawless connectivity is fundamental for customer satisfaction. With our new femtocell operators can find the most effective way to densify their networks and deliver a great customer experience inside residential buildings.

The Nokia Femtocell Multi-band Residential leverages the latest innovations to provide an indoor small cell that consists of 3G W-CDMA and 4G LTE carriers. The 3G and 4G carriers are supported using a single System on Chip (SoC), and can operate in multiple radio frequency (RF) bands. Its Software Defined Radio capability provides the flexibility to move from Multi-Standard to 4G only. These software-only changes can be made remotely, through operation and management (OAM), and require therefore no visit on site.

The Nokia Femtocell Multi-band Residential uses integrated omni-directional antennas and improves the end-user experience in small and medium indoor environments in a secure, cost-effective and easily deployable manner.

  • Low total cost of ownership (TCO) through extended 3G and LTE coverage and added capacity to indoor locations
  • Single shared site, backhaul, power and OAM across 3G and 4G
  • Common Small Cell Gateway and Security Gateway across 3G and 4G
  • Multiple services including Voice over LTE (VoLTE) with Circuit Switch Fallback (CSFB) and Single Radio Voice Call Continuity (SR-VCC) and Commercial Mobile Alerting Service (CMAS)
  • Seamless mobility: eNodeB S1 and X2 handover across Enterprise-Enterprise, Enterprise-Macro and Macro–Enterprise both intra- and inter-frequency
  • LTE Home eNodeB (HeNB) mode operation

The Nokia Femtocell Multi-band Residential is the latest enhancement to the industry-leading Nokia Small Cell solutions.
