The Femto Forum goes live!

West Sussex

I have recently been appointed founding chairman of The Femto Forum, an independent, inclusive, international body promoting the deployment of femtocells. Femtocells are low power home access points using cellular standards and licensed spectrum to provide dedicated home coverage and capacity to standard mobile devices. Femto Forum has major operators and vendors both big and small as its members, and launches publically tomorrow.

Femto Forum will drive standards to ensure femtocells can be manufactured cheaply enough to be suitable for home use, will provide market education to ensure the benefits of femtocells are well understood, and will develop the ‘ecosystem’ of operators and vendors to help create a thriving industry.

I’m produ to be involved with such an exciting area of technology, which is one of the development which promises to finally fulfill the latent promise of in-building wireless which has been apparent over the last decade or so.
