Softbank Mobile invites Alcatel-Lucent to trial Femto BSR equipment

7 Aug 2007

The Paris-based equipment vendor Alcatel-Lucent has been invited to demonstrate its Femto Base Station Router (BSR) to Japanese service provider Softbank Mobile as part of ongoing tests of mobile high speed data ‘in-building’ platforms announced by the cellco in June. Softbank hopes to use the trial to test the economic viability of the Femto BSR and will include trials of both voice and HSPA high speed data services in a range of buildings in Japan.
