Verizon trials femto technology

29 Oct 2008

Verizon Wireless has said it may launch femtocell products next year, following on from rival operator Sprint Nextel’s launch of a femtocell home base station in late 2007. ‘We are looking at femtocell technology and will soon be performing user tests,’ a Verizon spokesperson told Unstrung. ‘We could well have a product on the market early next year, but we have made no public announcements about that yet,’ he added. Unstrung reports that a Verizon-branded ‘Ubicell’ femtocell product from Samsung is currently awaiting approval from the Federal Communications Commission.
