IP.access has already developed a so called “femto cell” – a WiFi-router-sized box (120 mm × 162 mm× 40 mm), that provides 3G/HSDPA coverage within a distance of up to 200 meters. The device operates in the licensed 2,1-GHz-band at 5 mW and allows HSDPA (16QAM) connections with 7,2 MBit/s besides voice telephony. The uplink will be established by any broadband internet connection through an ethernet port. Seamless handovers from and to regular 3G-cells are to work, too.
ABI research expects more than 32 million of such or similar devices to be installed by 2011, which will then serve more than 100 million users.
