DoCoMo to launch new 3G/4G femtocell

19 Nov 2012

The Japanese cellular operator NTT DoCoMo has developed the world’s first integrated dual-mode small-cell base station (femtocell) which supports both 3G and 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) technologies. Femtocells are used to improve network coverage in indoor locations and DoCoMo intends to begin offering the new plug-and-play dual-mode base station to its customers from next month. Single-mode 3G femtocells have been available to DoCoMo subscribers since 2007.
