Femtocell Network Architecture
Airvana - Connecting femtocells to operator networks requires unique architectures that address the security needs of operators and mobile users and support the deployment of scalable femtocell networks that can serve millions of subscribers. The femtocell network architecture is also designed to allow ordinary consumers to install them with plug-and-play simplicity. Significant adaptive and self-organizing capabilities built into this architecture support zero-touch service activation by the user.
Network architecture is also critical in supporting emergency calling, which can now be delivered to mobile devices inside buildings with the same reliability and accuracy as fixed-line emergency calling. This paper addresses these critical topics, presents alternative approaches that are used in femtocell products, and highlights some of the unique solutions used in Airvana femtocell products.
