Alcatel-Lucent has joined SpanishCats:TEF">Telefonica in Germany to unveil the deployment of femtocell technology to help enhance 3G mobile broadband access and quality for SpanishCats:TEF">Telefonica customers in Germany.
Alcatel-Lucent's 'plug-and-play' femtocell tool for SpanishCats:TEF">Telefonica incorporates femtocell gateways and modems that can be installed in businesses and -- in general -- outdoor sites in high density areas.
Especially, with smartphones increasingly being used by office staff rather than conventional deskbound phones, the availability of femtocells in workplaces will enable SpanishCats:TEF">Telefonica to maintain service quality and connectivity for office workers and those in other indoor environments.
Vice President Network Engineering Access and Transport at Telefoica in Germany, Juan Carlos Garcia, said: "Quality of service is one of TelefÓnica Germany's major strategic goals. Using Alcatel-Lucent's Femto technology, our business customers have the option of enjoying high-quality 3G services for their voice and data communication. Our Signal Box by O2 increases the indoor quality of service and improves the experience of our customers."
President of Alcatel-Lucent's EMEA region, Luis Martinez Amago, added : "Alcatel-Lucent's focus of specializing in IP networking and ultra-broadband access means we also sharpen the ability of our customers to be competitive in their own markets. For this reason, the Alcatel-Lucent femtocell solution is a tool in helping TelefÓnica in Germany to continue to provide the quality of service its customers expect, no matter where they might be. Having high-quality 3G service in places where people spend most of their time - be it home or the workplace - and whether their means of access is via a fixed or mobile network, femtocells go a long way in creating high levels of customer satisfaction."
