TOKYO -- NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) announced today that Mobile TeleSystems OJSC (MTS - NYSE: MBT), the leading telecommunications provider in Russia and the CIS, together with NEC Neva Communications Systems CJSC (NEC Neva), have launched a Femtocell service in Ural.
The service, “Consistent Reception,” provides MTS’s enterprise customers with a stable 3G coverage in buildings where thick walls and steel beams may otherwise obstruct the signals coming from base stations.
NEC Neva has supplied MTS with an end-to-end Femtocell solution, including Femtocell gateway systems, Femtocell access points (FAP) and technical support of the Femtocell network. NEC’s FAP allows users to simultaneously accommodate up to 16 voice connections and reach an Internet access speed up to 7.2 Mbit/sec using HSDPA technology.
A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
