OVERLAND PARK, Kan. -- Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced it is working with AirWalk Communications Inc., a leader in small cell solutions, to add AirWalk’s enterprise femtocell to Sprint’s in-building solutions product portfolio. The product branded Sprint AIRAVE Pro Connect is available now for Sprint’s Custom Network Solutions customers to accommodate the rapid growth of indoor mobile traffic. AIRAVE Pro Connect is the world’s first enterprise-grade CDMA femtocell.
The AIRAVE Pro Connect allows Sprint to expand voice and data service to new venues and grow their customer base with a cost-effective, in-building solution. The enterprise femtocell is being deployed to increase coverage and capacity at enterprises, campuses, government buildings and other public venues as part of Sprint’s established standards-based IMS, 3GPP2 femtocell platform. Compared to traditional in-building solutions, the AIRAVE Pro Connect helps promote reduced costs, faster deployments, and off loads voice and data usage from the macro network.
“Our AIRAVE Pro Connect trial customers have experienced exceptional in-building service for both voice and data,” said Mike McRoberts, director of product management - Sprint. “Smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices are becoming essential everyday communication tools for business customers. The enterprise femtocell will help Sprint expand its in-building opportunities and proactively accommodate the anticipated traffic growth for in-building mobile devices.”
