Poor indoor coverage often prevents mobile customers using cell phone services at home and is impeding take-up of multimedia 3G offerings. Ubiquisys was formed in 2004 to address this challenge by bringing its innovative ZoneGate femtocell technology to market. The ZoneGate femtocell is a small ‘zero-touch’ plug-and-play device that plugs into a home broadband connection and provides high-quality 3G coverage in the home. Unlike WiFi, ZoneGate allows people to use their usual 3G cell phones to access services. ZoneGate means excellent mobile coverage at landline rates and allows mobile carriers to deliver innovative new services right where their customers need them – in their homes.
The ZoneGate system is unique in applying a standards-based approach to network integration by supporting both UMA and SIP/IMS protocols.
