Ip.access has teamed up with Alertmd to demonstrate how Femtocell can be integrated in smart home energy management solutions. By integrating ip.access’ Femtocell technology with AlertMe Energy Service the system automatically detects when phones enter or leaves the house and can therefore turn off lights, radio, television and other home appliances automatically when the house is empty and switch then back on when you return.
At this year’s Mobile World Congress, NEC demonstrated their Femtocell solution which offers PacketVideo’s TwonkyMedia connected home applications and MediaFusion content management and delivery platform. The solution is the result of collaboration between PacketVideo and NEC Corporation. The Femtocell solution is aimed at both consumers and mobile service providers.
Node-H GmbH has shown its femtocell protocol software delivering sustained high speed data transfer at 10Mbps using off-the-shelf mobile devices. A showcase was presented to key customers at the 2009 Broadband World Forum in Paris. The software was demonstrated on the Percello PRC 6000 platform. See video of the demonstration below.
PicoChip, a developer of WiMax and cellular home basestations(Femtocell) annouced that they have partnered with Elliptic, a leading security-based semiconductor IP supplier, to develop the femtocell architecture with embeded security. Femtocells – small, low-cost basestations that provide enhanced cellular services in homes and offices – present unique security challenges because they are directly connected to operators' networks. So when picoChip was designing its PC3xx picoXcell family of system-on-chip ( SoC ) solutions for the femtocell market, it turned to leading security-based semiconductor IP supplier Elliptic Technologies to help create a secure, standards-compliant architecture.
