ABI Research has named ip.access the number one picocell vendor. Picocells are small cellular base stations used to extend mobile coverage to indoor areas where outdoor signals do not reach, such as offices, aircraft cabins and ships, or to add network capacity in areas with very dense phone usage.

The ABI study concludes that ip.access is the top vendor in the 2G picocell market – which currently makes up the bulk of worldwide picocell shipments – and is well-positioned for the future 3G picocell market based on its established femtocell technology, Oyster 3G.

According to ABI, the distinction between picocells and femtocells will blur in the future. Picocells will adapt to take on femtocell attributes such as self-installation by the end customer, effectively becoming super-femtocells with longer range and higher capacity.
