Alca-Lu to deploy femtocell network for Chunghwa

11 Dec 2008

Chunghwa Telecom has awarded Alcatel-Lucent (Alca-Lu) a contract to deploy a femtocell network to enhance network coverage inside buildings. The deployment will also enable Chunghwa to improve the capacity of its network and reduce operational costs. Alca-Lu will supply Chunghwa with an end-to-end solution including its Base Station Router (BSR) Femto – which incorporates 3G W-CDMA radio access and core network elements into one unit. The BSR Femto will use subscribers’ current broadband services to transport voice and data traffic between the individual base stations and Chunghwa’s existing network. Alca-Lu will be responsible for deployment, project management and end-to-end network integration for the project.
