The Hall is Alive, with the Sounds of Femtos

Airvana has created a “Femtocell Orchestra” powered by the company’s HubBub UMTS High Capacity Femtocell. Sixteen handsets are connected to Airvana’s enterprise femtocell, simultaneously broadcasting music and spoken word content. This creative demonstration highlights the evolution of Airvana’s femtocell technology to address the business need for high capacity, high performance femtocells.

The “Femtocell Family Tablet”

The concept of the “connected digital home” that Airvana introduced at last year’s event has evolved to showcase the value of femtocells beyond basic indoor coverage. Visitors to the booth will see how a femtocell-connected tablet-based touch-screen application portal can keep today’s busy family connected. The “femtocell family tablet” offers a range of messaging, multimedia and social networking services designed to keep the family ‘location aware’ and fully connected. An Android-based mobile phone app, operating on the Google Nexus One device, will even show how family members can remotely interact with the home network through the family tablet and the HubBub femtocell.

EV-DO: Rev B and Beyond

Airvana will be showing its latest EV-DO macro technology including demonstrations of EV-DO Rev B as well as the analytic tools the company uses to identify and measure the Network Load Multiplier effect for smartphones on the macro network. Airvana experts will discuss the impact of increased functionality and performance of smartphones, coupled with significantly expanding data usage and strategies operators can employ today to mitigate the growing strain on today’s networks.
