ZTE, Samsung team up on home NodeB R&D

Chinese equipment-maker ZTE and Korean handset and network vendor Samsung will work jointly on R&D for W-CDMA home NodeB products.

Home NodeB, also known as femtocells, are designed to support home networking management and convergence.

A typical Home NodeB can automatically transfer a call session between the mobile network and the user's home DSL connection, as well as enabling wireless computer networking, broadband internet access and fixed line VoIP services all via the one device.

The two companies said the collaboration would leverage their complementary strengths in handsets and networks.
 
"This cooperation will help combine our strengths to jointly compete in the global 3G market,' said Samsung vice president Li Xiaozhong.
