NEC Corp. is offering indoor LTE femtocell base stations for telecom carriers, available in the second quarter for use in enterprises and residences.

The company says it specifically designed the RAN-GW (radio access network gateway) system, deployed internationally, to help ensure a smooth and efficient transition to LTE and to help telecom carriers reduce their capital investment spending.

The base stations connect to a telecom carrier’s core network through an indoor broadband connection, while the connections between the base stations and terminals occur over LTE. The base stations feature plug-and-play functionality that configures the device simply by connecting it to the broadband line, without the need for any initial settings.

The stations automatically control radio wave interference, which “ensures high-quality communications and enables users to build high-speed, high-volume communications environments indoors, even when installed amid different networks, such as outdoor LTE base stations,” the company adds.

"NEC has an extensive track record in the femtocell market, having made agreements with 18 telecom carriers around the world to deliver comprehensive femtocell systems that include femto gateways, base stations and 39 trials," notes Tadatoshi Fujiwara, senior vice president at NEC Europe.
