TDC and NEC ink femtocell agreement

9 Feb 2009

TDC Mobil, Denmark’s largest wireless network operator by subscribers, has announced plans to roll out a femtocell platform supplied by NEC before end-2009. Chief technical officer of TDC Mobile, Flemming Hynkemejer, said: ‘We look forward to evaluating the results of the femtocell trial. Femtocell technology promises to provide our customers with a number of advantages, primarily improved 3G coverage and capacity indoors. This will give them an even better experience and access to more services.’ He explained that the company will soon be able to offer customers femtocell access points; small plug-and-play consumer devices, to enable localised 3G coverage in their home while using their broadband connection as a backhaul. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, TDC Mobil had a subscriber base of over 3 million at end-September 2008, including half a million 3G subscribers.
