Vodafone Espana to begin femtocell pilot scheme

15 Dec 2008

Spanish cellco Vodafone Espana, in conjunction with Chinese hardware vendor Huawei Technologies, is to offer a limited selection of its business customers the chance to join a pilot scheme of its new Access Gateway product. The Access Gateway service, based on 3G technology femtocells, is designed to improve broadband coverage for voice and data within buildings. The move comes after Vodafone Espana announced in February 2008 that it had started testing femtocell technology, and the pilot scheme comes as a result of the cellco successfully completing its trials.
