TDC, NEC look to roll out femtocells in Denmark

Danish mobile operator TDC Mobile and NEC are working together for the potential roll-out of the NEC Femtocell system in late 2009, Telecompaper  reports.

They will start with a user trial involving several femtocell access points deployed in consumer locations and connected to TDC's commercial core network system.

The femtocell roll-out will offer TDC customers a small low-power consumer device (femtocell access point) that will enable the provision of localised 3G coverage and dedicated capacity in homes while using the broadband connection as a backhaul.

NEC will offer a system which includes the femtocell access point for direct subscriber use, together with the femtocell gateway and the femtocell access point management and provisioning systems, the report says
