Huawei has announced that its femtocell solution has been selected by China Unicom for its “3G Inn” service.
The service allows subscribers to enjoy a better 3G experience, with faster download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps. It has initially been launched in Beijing but China Unicom expects to roll out the service nationwide.
Huawei’s femtocell solution is a portable wireless device that connects 3G mobile handsets directly to an existing fixed broadband network. The solution allows users to enjoy high bandwidth data transfer from their home or office and supports bandwidth intensive applications such as video streaming, IPTV, video conferencing and mobile broadband.
Huawei president of wireless product line Wan Biao said: “Huawei’s Femtocell solution can help operators to increase competitiveness in the area of fixed-mobile convergence. China Unicom’s subscribers can now enjoy superior mobile broadband service everywhere, especially at home.”
