re: Femtocells Go Big Time in Barcelona
Hi,

The last I heard was that femtocells were having all sorts of problems synchronizing to the network in a good enough fashion for call hand off between adjacent nodes...at least over DSL backhaul.

Any updates?

Thanks,

Steve.

This reminds me a lot of where IMS was 2 - 3 years ago: lots of interest and trials, gee-whiz application demos and absolutely no business case. I hope it turns out better than the IMS story did.

re: Femtocells Go Big Time in Barcelona

The real competition is UMA not landlines. Not sure I want to replace my home router to support my cellphone, even if it is given to me. On the other hand, I was able to use my existing router and connect up my UMA phone in about 1 minute. I think that is the challenge for Femtocells - will people replace their home routers.

Agreed there is hype but there is much more tangible user benefit than IMS. Like killing the landline, dead.
